WATCH: Mini-Documentary On Ukraine’s Underground Techno Scene



The 2014 revolution brought Kyiv’s nightlife to a complete standstill. As protests turned into riots, and government security forces opened fire on protestors, the country fell into crisis.

Slava Lepsheev, who’d lost his job because of the financial crisis triggered by the war, had had enough and started Cxema, a raw, hard, and hypnotic Techno rave that he took to whatever semi-legal venue he could set a sound system up in.
