When peaceful cities are bombed, Ukraine is not up to partying. Since the outbreak of war, the activity of a huge niche of Ukrainian electronic music has been paused. Yet, the rave community members don’t sit still but look for ways to bring about the victory.

Oleksii Melnychuk from a community DETALI told us about the history of the centre’s foundation and its activity.
