Space Lady (USA, Night School, Castle Face):
Susan Dietrich, better known as The Space Lady, possibly the best known female synonymous to Moondog; Susan began her career in the late 70s, just when she began walking on the sidewalks of Boston dressed exuberantly, sending messages of love and pacifism, accompanied by an accordion and making versions of some contemporary pop hits or classics of that time.
10 years later she moved to San Francisco. There she purchased a Casio piano, some effects and a microphone with which she managed to raise to a new level the street musical proposal of the area. Her legend began taking some awareness in the past decade, when in 2000 Irwin Chusid included her in the compilation «Songs In The Key Of Z» dedicated to such unknown figures like the Space Lady.
Since 2013, when Night School reissued the first official album of this particular artist «The Best Of The Space Lady», Susan has shared stages with artists such as Dean Blunt, Mika Vainio or Julianna Barwick and playing several festivals like Flow Festival, Incubate or Le Guess Who.

Nikolaienko (UA, Muscut):
Dmytro Nikolaienko is a Kiev based sound artist and founder of the Muscut label. In 2006, inspired by Pierre Schaeffer, Karlheinz Stockhausen and the BBC Radiophonic Workshop, Nikolaienko initiated a project to study the musical aesthetics and futurism of the mid-20th century in order to relate them to the current cultural context. His music combines loops, electroacoustic sound fragments and tape manipulation. In 2010 Nexsound issued his debut mini-album Loops And Cuts Soup. In June 2015 he released his new album, The Sounds Of Pseudoscience, on which he has worked for the last five years. The album has been reviewed by The Wire and Tiny Mix Tapes, and it has appeared in the «Best of 2015» lists by Krossfingers and Elevation Through Sound program on Dublab.
