***** "... as if contemporary culture pop had found its true nature, sometimes it seems Trent Reznor reincarnates in Florence And The Machine, but these are all reducing definitions: Yasdyes is simply a masterpiece of the genre with an emotion inside which is sometimes difficult to handle, just wonderful.
Ekat Bork plays with great energy and communicative power, her energy on stage can turn even a small concert hall into an unforgettable event. Her performance involves and convinces." (9/10) RUMORE
***** " Although "Yas Dyes", in Russian for "I am now here", looks like a unity, the album, with its variety, bursts out of its drawers at second glance. In this way, Ekat Bork, despite the similarities to other artists, does not sound like a copy.
The diversity in her music is intriguing Ekat Bork is creating her very own introspective electronic music." LAUT.de - Best of 2017- Die Newcomer des Jahres
43°48′N 131°58′E. Winter. Tigers and snow leopards scavenge the bins of the suburbs. Ekat Bork was born here with China to her west and the Sea of Japan to the east and Moscow 6000 miles away.
Like the big cats of her city she scavenged and survived and planned her escape. Her city had a circus. Ekat learned the trapeze and gymnastics. She sang traditional songs of the Russian far east. She danced and wailed, wild and unrestrained. She studied at the university. She watched heavy metal bands but didn’t understand them. She packed all she had, stole the money from her mother’s purse and caught the Trans-Siberian Express to St Petersburg. It took nine days. But her journey to freedom would take much longer.
She busked on the subway, she crashed in filthy squats with no-name bands. She worked and was fired for singing instead of selling. She escaped again… to Switzerland.
She studied at CPM IN Milan “singing and contemporary writing and production” and made contacts within the musical world of Switzerland and Italy. Ekat expresses herself by writing music, lyrics and arrangements. In October/ December 2013 she performed with Eric Martin and Jannifer Batten in acoustic and electric shows on a long tour. June 2013 she released her first album “VERAMELLIOUS” produced by the Indie Label GinkhoBox with her manager and producer Silvio Cattaneo and the music producers Francesco Fabris fand Sandro Mussida. In 2014 she reached the most important stages in Switzerland like the Gurten Festival, M4music , Label Suisse…
She recorded two challenging, uncompromising albums, “VERAMELLIOUS” and in 2015 she was working on her new Album “YASДYES”
(“I am here now”) recorded in different locations in Italy, Switzerland, Russia, Poland and Germany. January 2016 Album mastering at Calyx studios in Berlin.
In late 2017, Ekat needed a new environment to inspire her next project. Greenhouse Studios in Reykjavik became their creative lair and over a period of weeks, “KONTROL“ emerged.
Mastered by composer, producer and engineer, Valgeir Sigurðsson.
“KONTROL” is a four song EP of vast electronic atmospheres, heart-pumping rhythms and dark, emotional depth. It's beautiful and tense and desolate. Two tracks Kontrol and Zhivago will be singles, wrapped in provocative videos.
Between May and August 2018, Ekat Bork found herself free, naked and fearless as she embarks on her first Solo EU & INDIA Tour.
At the end of 2018 she starts working on her 4 Album which will be released in Spring 2019
