— ** LADY WAKS **
Russia — Hotcakes
Lady Waks is a one woman industry. Promoter, Producer (best DJ at the BreaksPoll awards 2014 and 2015, Best breakthrough producer, Breakspoll 2009), DJ (nominated Best Breakthrough DJ at Breakspoll awards 09, best international act SBA 09), pioneering graffiti artist, designer and label owner.
She is an all round modern media phenomenon. Based in St Petersburg, Russia, Waks has been pushing her ideologies in music for a decade. Her various club nights and festivals have become a byword for quality in dance music circles. It all began back in 1999 with her Hip Hop show on Russians biggest dance radio station «Radio Record». Then in 2000 she left to focus her energy towards promoting and creating the now well kown brand «In Beat We Trust».
Recognition came in 2004, when Time Out magazine voted it best club night. After having hosted just about every big Breakbeat DJ in the world, Waks and IBWT went into creating «Breaks Arena». The world’s first Breakbeat Festival. Over 3000 punters per year have seen her and a host of international talent rock the festival for the last years. After this success IBWT went on to invade other festivals.
At the now infamous Black Sea “Kazantip Republic” Waks runs just about everything breakbeat! MAYDAY started to join via an IBWT stage at its Russian events. Waks also tours the world: from Miami to Siberia, from China to Australia, Italy, Spain, New Zealand, Swiss, Germany the 1st Lady of Beats has rocked them all.
Lady Waks has also made a name for herself as a producer. Releasing tracks on well known labels such as Menu Music, West, Bass Planet, RAT Records along with her own venture «InBeatWeTrust music» label. Lady Waks is the true definition of talent and hard work. In 2012 Waks’ weekly radio show on «Radio Record» won the «Best Radio Show» at Breakspoll awards’12. This the first and still only fully breakbeat show in all of Russia.
Apart from this IBWT has just released the second collection of IBWT wear alongside a Big exhibition of Wak ́s Photo and design work and some new beats! Respected by her peers and loved by her fans. The future is hers.
