WHO? LA composer and producer, Katya Richardson
GENRE? Electrojazz, Filmmusic
FOR FANS OF: SOPHIE, Flying Lotus, Son Lux, Sofi Tukker and Billie Elish
THE MUSIC FILES FAVOURITE TRACK: III – Katya’s latest EP, Life From Write, consisting of three very different tracks; I, II and III create a blistering collection of electronic synths and addictive bass. Although all three tracks deliver their own individual touch, my favourite track has to be III. The Instrumental piece really captures Katya’s unique blend of powerful, catchy sounds that really emphasises the electronic jazz style that flows together so well. It totally mesmerises listeners with it’s weird but brilliant vibe that would be incredible to witness during a live session. The type of music that should be played LOUD so we can really appreciate every bizarre yet wonderful note.
WHY WE ARE FANS: The wide range of unique instruments allows Katya’s music to put you in a trance… the sort of music that lets listeners escape reality, switch off and really enjoy the music.

Assisted in the studios of film composers, Danny Elfman and Hans Zimmer, and is now working on an experimental dance film about plastic pollution, in partnership with KO Productions (UK).
