Belarusian Scot Lucy Ross aka Dollskabeat has been lazily compared to current buzz acts Little Boots and La Roux, but her stylish electronica looks more to the future than the past. Based in Edinburgh, Dollskabeat will be playing in Croatia later this summer.
DOLLSKABEAT is a solo artist, producer and performer. Part Scot, part Belarusian, part Spacer Woman. A Gemini by sign, her musical creations rather than personality are equally split with sounds, hooks and melodies from alternative electronic, disco and RnB, whilst the arrangement and lyrics go pop in formation. A handful of demos played on BBC 6 Music & BBC Radio 1 granted her an invite to the Maida Vale studios to record a live session as the BBC’s Scottish ‘Artist to Watch for 2008’. Classical piano training and home made tracks built momentum, however an insight into past and present production techniques coupled with live instrumentation gave her songs new life. DOLLSKABEAT loves to dance, play vintage synths and drum machines. She performs with her live 4 piece Dollska-band. The result is an extrovert show of sound, shapes and colours.
