Nikita von Tiraspol
Was Lucifer more beautiful than Adonis?

Leipzig based Nikita von Tiraspol joins the Noorden roster with a »split-tape« asking whether Luficer or Adonis was more beautiful. Is it Adonis on the A-side with laid back but lush beats and powerful breaks? Or is it Lucifer on the B-side with glitchy ambient and floating drones? It’s your call!
Nikita and Alex first met at the Airbag Craftworks warehouse sale in 2018. One year later they met there again and Alex asked Nikita for some demo tracks. Said and done: The demo was great and it took no time till »Was Lucifer more beautiful than Adonis?« was born.
Most of the tracks, formed between 2016 and 2019, are deeply influenced by reading pieces like Dante’s »Divine Comedy«, works by Rumanian philosopher Emil Cioran or various Lithuanian fairytales and produced using mostly analog tools like Elektron Analog Four, MFB Tanzbär, Korg Minilogue or Hohner PSK 45.
