Lolina is, for now at least, the stage name of Alina Astrova. She was born in Russia, grew up in Estonia, moved to London at 17 to study art criticism, and has since gone lowkey famous as an electronic and digital music artist under the alias Inga Copeland and as one half of the mysterious duo Hype Williams between 2009 and 2013 (along with Dean Blunt, the pseudonym of the equally mysterious artist behind Babyfather). With the 2016 release of ‘Live In Paris’, her first video LP, Lolina turned to digital composition. Her live performances experimented with CDJs, intuitive vocal improvisations, and the distortions of loops and scratches. Three more albums and a three-part NTS radio residency later, Lolina founded her own record label Relaxin Records, ahead of the release of her most recent album ‘Face The Music’ in 2022.


Kwart Voor Straks is the brand-new project of Alex Deforce & Charlotte Jacobs, two wordsmiths with different styles but similar philosophies. Alex is a painter, poet and curator; Jacobs is a vocalist and songwriter. Kwart Voor Straks interweaves their speaking and singing voices with sudden, evaporating musical fragments, at times no more than the synth-tastic distortion of a single, endlessly stretched syllable. A moody dance of fearless experimentation, for lovers of Voice Actor, ssabae or Laila Sakini who feel at home in Stroom's meticulously unbalanced world.

Nur/se is the DJ alias of Brussels-based artist Roberta Miss. Besides her visual practice, which spans fashion, print and painting (which she teaches at le75), Roberta is the co-founder of Poxcat, a collective that has been promoting Brussels DJs by sharing online mixes and organising some wiiiild parties for several years now – thanks for that <3. In her own sets, Nur/se moves through various sound and listening dynamics – from techno to spoken word and field recordings – often linked to contemporary activism and political resistance.
