13 September 2021
From an early age, musician, composer, DJ and audio enthusiast from Poltava, Ukraine, Bodya Konakov, professed his love for different music and experiment with sound, texture, acoustic, analog and digital audio synthesis inspired by the likes of Aphex Twin, Eduard Artemiev, John Cage and cosmic friends. His style ranges from abstract soundscapes, ambient electronics to experimental pop, rave and freedance.
After the Maidan Revolution in 2014, Bodya remained in Kyiv as music activist. He was a member of Схема team, then he started to organize parties and a radio show called ШЩЦ that has grown into a record label with braindance, IDM and freedance music of his friends.
In 2016-2017 he released a few white label EPs called Yellow Vinyls with “cheesy house music”. One of his tracks was released in the DJ-Kicks compilation by Jackmaster on !K7 label. In 2021 he released his album called ‘Kyiv Summer Tracks 2014-2021’ on ШЩЦ label.
