V-A-C Sreda

Featuring specially commissioned artworks, a podcast series and a selection of timely essays, Sreda magazine offers a nuanced view on Russian culture and contemporaneity. Content is available for a limited period of time and updated every Wednesday. The Russian word ‘sreda’ means Wednesday and also defines the natural, geographical and social environment.

Sreda Mix: Denis Riabov

Denis Riabov is a Moscow-based DJ who is developing a melomane community dedicated to rare, unconventional but at the same time sincere music. The community is entitled precisely Sincere Music. Specially for V–A–C Sreda, Denis made a New Year’s eve mix of silvery nival sounds and melodies. American soul and German new wave gently mingle with Maya Kristalinskaya’s songs and fusion to create a light and somewhat mysterious mood, heralding magical winter excitement.
