John Object is an experimental electronic musician from Kyiv, Ukraine. He has played at virtually all of the most notable underground venues in modern-day Ukraine — Cxema, Boiler Room Kyiv, Brave! Factory, Plivka, Otelʼ, but remains a controversial figure in the local scene due to the sheer nature of the work. The music is violently abstract, melodic but disgustingly organic, heavy, both club and anti-club and is unlikely to fit the context of an average night out in techno and house-dominated night life of Ukraine. Often inconviniencing those who come expecting a specific BPM, the experiments instead are aimed at those who are willing to react. A perfectionist, his first proper release, Heat EP only cameout on Bio Future Laboratory in August 2018, years in to his attempts at fitting in with the local crowd. The EP, described by one listener as «popmusiquecon-crete» and as «an AI-simulated sonic acid trip» received praise primarily from foreign publications and fans, still, perhaps, sounding alien with in the techno/rave/lo-fi revival of the post-Soviet block.
