Warsaw-based Natalia Zamilska may be a newcomer to the European techno scene, but she is fast making ripples outside of her hometown in Poland. Recent interviews dub the young artist as the “queen of Polish techno”, and she aims to substantiate the title with her well-received May 2014 album debut, Untune.

Recently defending a diploma in Social and Cultural Animation at the University of Silesia, Zamilska’s creative forms also spill into a knack for visual collage-ing; she complements many of her audio releases with a variably self-designed collection of professional looking music videos. Zamilska has coordinated numerous concerts at the Gray Zone Foundation for Audiovisual Culture in her former home of Cieszyn, and led MIDI and electronic music workshops within the local Academy AV. As further testament to her taste for integrating audio and visual, she has also produced music for animations and short films.

Zamilska’s sound signature of bass-driven noise and broken techno pervade her nine-track Untune debut. Most recently, she was invited to perform at Krakow’s Unsound 2014 Festival, alongside the Swans, AtomTM, Objekt, Perc, and Robert Hood. Maybe not yet queen, the princess holds her own.
