"Dezeen Music Project - Broken Clocks by Jekka"

This song by Moscow-based musician Jekka shows what you can do with just a laptop, a microKORG and some talent. Layers of looped vocal samples and a full-blooded synth bass combine to provide a platform for Jekka's powerful, dynamic vocal melody. It's a bold and energetic style that draws favourable comparisons with the excellent Tune-Yards album of last year. - Dezeen


"Jekka - Heart's a Mess (article in russian)"

The rising star of Russian electronic music Jekka released her first mini-album, "Heart's a mess". Her own music Jekka describes as eclectic electronic pop.

Vocals, penetrating to the bone and tearing inside, hard beats and very meaningful lyrics - this is a new stage in modern music - "intelligent pop".
Despite the fact that the name of the EP refers to a popular song about love, by reading the lyrics attached to the album, you begin to understand the depth, which is not visible for the simplicity and sincerity of the external image Jekka. The fragile girl with light eyes - is disembodied dream of beauty and purity sought by everyone, but are lost when faced with life's difficulties.... - W-O-S


"Introducing: Jekka"

Jekka is a young woman from Moscow who’s making electronic music on laptops, synths and ipads, and we’re going to go ahead and say it’s perfect winter music, with a starkness and coldness in her sounds. Her entire Heart’s A Mess EP is now a free download on Bandcamp, and you can’t really want much more than that. We’ve got ‘Break My Heart’ featuring 813 below.

"Thunderstorm in St. Petersburg, graduation and concerts with ipads: 10 young musicians perform at Stereoleto (in Russian)"

New Holland, ipad and screaming from the gallery

Muscovite Evgenia Nedosekina played in public for the second time in her life, and summed up the difference: "The difference from the first performances in Strelka is in the fact that 90% of the audience, are not my friends or family." She came to St. Petersburg the day before the festival at eleven in the morning and the night before with friends went to New Holland, where they got soaked while listening to indie band Pompeya. She lived in a hostel "Friends", which for convenience settled all musicians, and from eleven o'clock of day X after breakfast and before soundcheck she rehearsed and mastered the borrowed ipad to use as a controller. Evgenia admitted afterwards that she hasn't mastered all the peculiarities of the device yet, but for the audience it was absolutely invisible. Jekka sings in a soul manner on top of broken beats and shyly looks into the audience. At one point someone shouted: "I'm in love!" But if Jekka is happy, she doesn't really show it. Between songs, she said from the stage: "Soon this torture will end. For you and for me. "But, as it turned out, this set in St. Petersburg wasn't torture at all: here Jekka was accepted and loved almost more than the others. - Look At Me


"Dezeen music project: Tokyo Feeling by Jekka"

This quirky electronic pop song by Moscow-based musician Jekka has a simple, repeating arpeggiated synth pattern at its base. It seems unremarkable at first, but transforms into the perfect counterpoint to Jekka’s soaring, oddly melancholic vocals once she starts singing just under a minute in to the track. - Dezeen

Bio

Chosen as one of the top ten new young musicians by the hippest online lifestyle magazine Look at Me, Jekka already garnered a great following and played such festivals as Stereoleto in St. Petersburg, FORMA festival in Moscow, Texture festival in Perm and also clubs in Moscow and other Russian cities. Not only does she take inspiration from the likes of Bjork, Bob Dylan and David Bowie, but also from contemporary artists like Tune Yards, Bat for Lashes and embraces the use of new technologies such as ipads for live shows. A fan of everything new and at the same time respecting traditions, Jekka also works with visual artists to try and take music onto another level.
