HYBRID IDENTITY, BK
mayilovesummer, Brooklyn-based artist and DJ, was enthralled by various electronic sounds when she was first exposed to the nightlife scene during her teens in her home country in the southwestern city of Krasnodar, Russia.
The sense of freedom and magic provided by rave spaces enabled her to be whomever she wanted. She proceeded with her journey as she moved to NYC in 2009, forming hybrid identity with friends from post-Soviet territory in 2019—an event and podcast collective.
MAYILOVESUMMER oscillates her interests between spirituality and gender studies to produce a journey of ambient, experimental, bass, and deep psychedelic techno sonics in Cookie Series #043.
