A man with way too many interests – an openly queer composer, producer, DJ and vocalist, graphic designer, typographer and 3D illustrator, proud member of the Oramics and Ciężki Brokat crews, co-creator of Radio Kapitał, Polish ambassador for Keychange. His own music has morphed several times throughout the last 10 years – from purely synthetic timbres and polyphonic singing with Pleśni to a perplexing fusion of rhythmically and sonically jagged compositions, bass-heavy club tracks on his latest EPs, “Gusła (Human Rites)” and limited vinyl release on London-based 51-53 Records, «Doolska». He presented his music during numerous festivals (Unsound, Up To Date, Tauron Nowa Muzyka, Audioriver, Spring Break) and an assortment of clubs in Poland and abroad (Berlin, Prague, Oslo, Ljubljana). He composed and created impromptu live music for interactive theatre plays: Method of National Constellations, quadraphonic sound for Jawić się and music for street theatre Manifesta. In the club his thirteen-year experience of supporting queer, anti-fascist and underground scene results in an almost annoyingly disparate selection of the most forward-thinking sound offered by today’s scene. In his series of DJ-sets and club nights he blends unusual rhythmic patterns kicked up a notch with his improvised vocals.
He has supported sets by Crystal Castles, Emika, Miss Kittin, Danger, Tommy Cash, Little Big, Octo Octa, Dick4Dick, Baasch or Pola Rise and shared festival stages with the likes of Kraftwerk, Skepta, GusGus, Fatima Al Qadiri, Lafawndah, Moderat, Richie Hawtin, The Whip, Brodka, Rebeka or Zoot Woman.

Movie: «Polish Stonewall»
In early 2020, ILGA-Europe, a Brussels-based NGO, ranked Poland as the most homophobic country in the European Union. On the 7th of August, Warsaw police arrested Margot, a non-binary activist, and placed her in pre-trial detention. In response to her arrest, protesters took to the streets and a further 48 people were detained in an event some are referring to as ‘Polish Stonewall’. i-D travelled to Warsaw to meet the LGBT+ activists fighting for a ‘Polish Stonewall’.
