Some DJs start their musical journey through their parents, some through self-discovery and some even by accident but Julia Govor carved her path in a pretty unique way. It began in the small Russian military town of Abkhazia where she performed as a cassette DJ at her local nightclub. She was also a singer in a military band called Moryachka and performed songs by Russian singers every week. So where does electronic music fit in? Well, in 2004 she got a job in Moscow working for MTV and ended up interviewing gods like Ricardo Villalobos and Richie Hawtin. She’d been DJing a bit beforehand but after some more skill honing she was playing gigs at Movement and Sonar by 2010. Her first productions came via Visionquest and Get Physical a few years ago and her deep melodic techno is now starting to see full form. She performed at The Lab LA and showed us that she’s come a long way since mixing on cassettes (!!!) Although we can’t give full details yet, 2016 will see Govor release on some prolific labels, including one of the biggest techno imprints around.
