Watch as Ukrainian DJ Nastia plays a 1 hour setlist under the Duga radar in Chernobyl

For the second episode of Scary Beautiful – the audiovisual project created by DJ Nastia in collaboration with Ballantine’s, the DJ along with her team, visited the haunting area of Chernobyl in Ukraine – specifically the Chernobyl-2 facility, where the over-the-horizon radar station ‘Duga’ is located and where she played a DJ set.

Undoubtedly, Chernobyl is a place that to this day stirs the hearts and minds of mankind. As part of the Scary Beautiful project and following Ballantine’s with its notion of ‘True Music’, Nastia has been pre-selecting unreleased tracks by producers from all over the globe, some of which you can hear in the episode’s DJ mix – later, some of these tracks will become a part of an LP that is going to be released via Nastia’s label NECHTO.

As the world has to adapt to a new pandemic reality, Nastia DJ is looking for new ways of supporting the global music community and club music through exposing fresh and upcoming talents. Scary Beautiful is aimed to not only support new artists, but also holds an objective of discovering our world anew and seeing it from a perspective that is so frightfully enchanting.
