The Finnish music producer and DJ Sansibar continues the sound continuum of Underground Resistance in his techno tracks. His sparkling numbers are carried by cosmic synths, dynamic bass lines and precisely placed vocal samples. The results are elegant, balanced dance tracks.


How is the overall vibe in your city?

Relaxed, quiet and dark, but the spring is knocking.

Can you elaborate a bit on the mood you’ve been in, while recording your set?

I tried to capture a microcosm of stuff that’s been influential to me in the past month or so.

How do you feel about the overwhelming presence of digital / social media in comparison to the lack of social time IRL?

Exhausting and boring to be frank. And the cold winter is not making things easier. Luckily there’s light at the end of the tunnel.

Does this at some point influence your musical production? The lack of the crowd? How?

I’ve been doing more collaborated projects and band music, since usually I work solo. It has been really great inspiration from the mundane groundhogs day.

The Elevate Festival 2021 theme is Momentum. Which social or political cause would deserve more Momentum?

Structural misogyny and racism.
