Drinking with Nastya Muravyova

Diligence is an exceptional quality that belongs not to every person. Nastya Muravyova is leading by example that diligence is the mother of good fortune. Today she is one of the most active players of the Ukrainian electronic scene who easily combines the job of an air hostess and DJ, pulling through and even succeeding in both. We met with Nastya not to hear the recipes of success but to chat about sex on the plane, her favorite Nelly Furtado song and people asking for a free entrance to Berghain.

A traditional question of this feature - what's your favorite drink?

There are many options, of course, but usually, I drink Jägermeister. It relaxes me, and things become more fun. I also love White Russian, Aperol Spritz, and vodka.

 

Do you remember the first time you got drunk?

I got drunk with Revo and Kingsbridge low-alcohol drinks at the graduation party in the 9th grade, and my parents took me away. I guess you know how it all ended.

Tell a funny story that happened to you when you were drunk.

It was my friend's birthday. We ordered 28 shooters for four of us. You know, they were the killer ones. We drank them up and decided to get some Jägermeister. After that, I lost my phone and got home super drunk. I get some glimpses of how I, for some reason, thought that I urgently needed to have a walk with my dog. So, I went strolling with a dog without a leash. I do not recollect how I walked with him. Hopefully, Richie realized that he needed to be near me and not run away. Usually, you release him without a lead, and he runs someplace. After all, we got back home, and I fell asleep all dressed up.

But you approached it responsibly - drunk, still did not forget to walk with the dog.

Well, even none of my parents asked me anything. Afterward, Mom said: “Nastya, it was terrible." And I was like: "I'm sorry, Mom, I do not remember anything."

Besides DJing, you work as an air hostess. How often do drunk passengers come across on board?

Ha, there is not a single flight without a drunk passenger and a drunken story.

What are you doing in this case?

First, we warn that drinking is prohibited. If it goes on, we announce that we will issue an act of offense. If the passenger does not listen, we take away a bottle. If we can't get the bottle, we write the act of the offense.

Were there guys who smoked on board or had sex?

Yes! So, it was my first internship flight to Barcelona. I remember it clearly. The sign to fasten the seat belts came in, I helped everyone and noticed that one toilet was closed, and another one was open. I closed it and asked if there was someone in the second. "We have no idea; we thought you closed it," was the answer. I went "Damn! What should I do, maybe there is someone." So we decided to open it and check. There was an instructor with us, so she opened the door slightly, and there was a girl with her underwear dropped, and a man behind her. And we were like "Oops!" and closed the door. Then they came out blushing, giggling, and we were standing there and chuckling. Honestly, I have no idea how is it possible to have sex in there.

How do you manage to combine work as a stewardess and a DJ career?

When I need to play somewhere, I just ask for a day off at work. They know why I need it, so there is no problem.

Is it hard to be in this mode all the time?

Physically, yes, very difficult. You are tired, like a dog, and you need to either go somewhere or play. But it's cool anyway. Then you feel “Yeah, I did everything I need and even more.”

Do you remember the first party you played at?

It was in Otel' club. There is a bar there now. But then there was nothing at all. There were three people at the party. I played from the computer because there were no decks. All my friends were hanging in Closer, as there was some Perlon DJ or some Japanese guy playing. I was like “I'm going to play soon! I will play soon! I will play for the first time!” But no one came. It's alright. I was not particularly upset.

What was the cheesiest track you played?

When I was starting, I played some Metallica and The Horrorist.

Do you remember the coolest one? I think I know what you are going to say.

Yes!

Well, besides Berghain?

All CXEMA parties. Every event is terrific in its own way.

Surely, there must be other unforgettable ones.

Tresor, OHM, ://about blank - everywhere in Berlin.

Do you remember the weirdest question you were asked at the party?

“Are you producing or mixing?”

Did someone ask you to put on some particular tracks?

Yes! Once in Otel', a guy ran up to me and showed the ant on the arm. I went "Cool, cool!" He was telling me something, but I did not hear, so I asked to write it on the phone. He wrote something like "if you put the Prodigy track, I will love you," and gave me ten hryvnas. I gave the money back and said that I have no the Prodigy. He told me to "keep it," and went on partying.

What are the most memorable sets you've heard at parties?

Kyle Geiger in Berghain. It was fucking amazing. Then DVS1. I just adore him. Also, I once heard Insolate playing in Berghain. She was so wicked! I was standing and holding my head.

What track can make you cry?

The Hippie Junkie - Total Confusion, which I played at CXEMA. When I hear it, I want to cry and celebrate and dance and weep.

Name a track that causes a feeling of joy or a desire to go out.

Spacer Woman.

What song can play in your head all day?

Probably Trisomie 21 - The Last Song.

Do you have any musical guilty pleasures?

I love to listen to Руки Вверх or Иванушки International. Oh, and Nelly Furtado.

Yeah! That's our thing.

I also like Akon, and Enrique Iglesias - Ring My Bells.

What Nelly Furtado tunes do you like?

All Good Things Come To An End. I always want to cry when I hear it.

Let's leave music for a second. What is your main drawback?

I am not self-confident enough.

I read somewhere that you were very shy to play when you were starting out. Do you feel the same way now?

I'm not so worried as before. Sometimes shy, but not too worried.

Where does this lack of confidence come from? Did someone question you as a DJ?

Yes, many people said that. “She’s not serious. Music? A DJ? Come on!”

And then they wrote "Muravyova, can you give me a plus for a party?"

They said, "Well, good job, for real."

What is your main virtue?

Full commitment to the craft, I guess. I am a hard worker. I like to work a lot.

Well, the most crucial question: Can I have a plus?

I would now send a photo of Dima Zolaa which says "None." If I am handed over to the hospital, it will be because they ask me about it.

Did someone asked you about Berghain?

60 people.

Who passed?

The one who asked first. I also admire it when all sorts of strangers write “Hello Nastya. It's my friend's birthday. Do you have any pluses? How so, Nastya? Why are you letting down?"

Well, maybe everyone thinks that you are a "homie."

I'm trying to, but there is no need for people to take advantage of it.

What's your hangover recipe?

Atoxyl.

And there any traditional or folk remedies?

Well, drink a beer. You just need to survive it. Lie down, drink plenty of water and pass.
