Remember this name, because soon it will sound from all the screens, radio stations and other places. Rising star of Russian show business, a representative of the new generation of performers, SHE - known earlier as one of the musical minds of the company Black Star, the «engine» of the label’s progress. The press is bursting with the stunning news - Katya Disney is going to begin a solo career!
Giving her preference to the new styles in music, an outrageous singer promises to present a provocative spectacle to the audience and stir up the feelings of listeners. Exclusively for MODNY DOM, today Katya Disney has opened the curtain of her such a new and unusual creativity for the perverted view of the spectator.
M.D.: Katya, hello. Everyone knows that you are a BLACK STAR person. How did it happened that you get to the best producing company in the country?
K.D.: As you know, it’s not easy to get into our structure, but I’m probably lucky one, it’s a reward for my past labors. After all, in the company Black Star, I occupy two positions as a choreographer and editor of Black Star radio. Communication with my friends-artists played a certain role (laughs), because earlier, when I was working in Ukraine and doing staging for Ukrainian stars, I became famous for scandalous numbers, and Timati personally invited me for an interview. Apparently it is peculiar to him to recruit strong and daring players. I am one of those who can challenge, first of all to myself.
M.D.: Are there many responsibilities on your fragile female shoulders now? Tell us about your tasks in the company?
K.D.: I work in the department for the musical development of the label and individual artists. But I have one big responsibility - I listen to a lot of different music. It is important for me to be always on the wave and to trace both qualitative and Western trends, because I directly interact with our artists when writing, recording and releasing songs and albums. My opinion is quite significant in the «Blackstar» music chain. Therefore, those hits that you are accustomed to hear at home or in cars, watch clips on music channels, in the sky or listen to the waves of radio stations - before they are approved directly by the leadership pass through me. I also have postproduction, communication with the media and with customers, organizers, production centers, booking. Therefore, if you want to interact in one of these areas with our stars - first WELCOME to me (winks).
M.D.: We already know your little secret ... It’s true - do you start a solo career?
K.D.: I will say so - the role of the gray cardinal is done, and I’m ready to set foot on the path of solo creativity. Work on the launching is in full swing and I want to say that I plunged into this process with my head. For me, as for a professional who stood «beyond the artist», this is a new page in my biography. And despite the fact that I myself rule my career - it’s a completely different emotion. I’m sure that the listener will also feel the euphoria of my work.
M.D.: What makes a good show and a good artist?
K.D.: I think that a good artist must necessarily have contact with the listener. The energy that he possesses ...For sure, important is what he brings to the masses, so to say his Massage. And if he does not enjoy being on the stage - then the audience will quickly go out. After all, music is a synthesis of emotions and feelings of two sides, both the performer and the viewer.
M.D.: What has prompted you to such a decision?
K.D: I had a dream that I should sing. And I trust the dreams more than people, they never let me down. This became a sacred sign for me, so to say a «starting point». In general, I confess honestly, becoming part of the BLACK STAR label’s team, being in a constant cycle of the work process, and having constant contact with the stars - all these moments played their role. My energy is bursting, and I’m ready to start my OWN «dialogue with the listener».
M.D.: Katya Disney - a representative of a new generation of performers. How are you going to surprise the listener and viewer?
K.D.: My work will necessarily reflect the subtle moments of the relationship between people. My mission is to show that being yourself is fashionable! After all, lately we live in lies, we are only interested in money, status, we put on masks and walk in them through the streets. I’m a rebel by nature and I want the truth - that’s what the way I’ll surprise, no matter how strange it may sound. After all, many artists create images and overact with them. With the help of my creativity I want to convey people how important is to be always yourself. I’m going to do this through my unusually frank songs and quite shocking and daring images, actually the same as my character! I am a person of mood and if, for example, I want to go out and sing in plush pajamas and curlers, I can easily do it! Vocal, of course, will not leave you indifferent. After all, I continue to work hard, because the process of training itself turns me on.
M.D.: When will the premiere of your debut single?
K.D.: Now the work is hard in the studios. Ahead is a trip to the States, which will finally put us in a time frame. After all, we fly to choose locations for the debut video and are sure that the first song will blow up the show business. Do you need a timeline? I will say one thing - in the beginning of summer, It will be hot!
M.D.: Exclusively for the magazine MODNY DOM - at least a little bit open the curtain, how will you surprise the audience with your debut video work?
K.D.: You can’t excite everyone, because every spectator is on his wave. I will say one thing - someone who understands us, he will really get enjoyment from work. The video will involve very beautiful people, talented dancers, all sorts of locations from luxury to New York streets like Long Wood Avenue in the Bronx, and my image will remain unchangeable, as my principle, you already understood, is everywhere and in everything to be myself. But how it will be in the real world and what kind of love affair will be held through this story with an unconventional ending, you can see for yourself by looking at the work.
M.D.: Your tattoos - there are so many of them, and after all, they are not just on your body?
K.D.: Tell us more about their origins. It all started with one tattoo, like everyone else, and then it went (laughs). My tattoos first of all have more artistic design than some sacred meaning. I make this choice consciously and purposefully every time to not regret in the future. I treat my drawings on the body as design patterns (after all, they are a limited collection, not all have them). They create my image, like clothes, accessories or jewelry, only tattoos are more durable. Therefore, I approached the choice of the master very carefully and finally found him ...and I’m not going to change him. Yes, and the work I have, you know, around all are such colorful and unordinary, it inspired me to draw to myself.
