"24 year old female music producer from Tbilisi / Georgia, also known as a member of Goslab, a Georgian art laboratory. Her academic education in political and media sciences at American Institutes went in radically different direction from art and music. but it constantly appeared to be a strong challenge surrounding around her, starting from her family, ending with friends and people she worked with, such as Nikakoi (WFM Rec.) Erast (Laboratory instinct) and Gogi Dzodzuashvili, who used Tusias' vocals and lyrics in most of their songs. Tusia grew up within a space, which is something like an erratic mixture of controversial and at the same time logical records, which leads to a mixed Georgian, Russian and European production. It initiated in childhood under the tunes of The Smiths, Lou Reed, Weather Report, David Bowie, Cocteau Twins, Bjork, Aphex Twin, Squarepusher, Stravinsky, Prokofiev, Shostakovich, Jeff Mills, Autechre, Kraftwerk, Georgian folk music and much more, which came out transformed from the rough speakers of Soviet production in the tiny studio space of Goslab, which appeared to be a shelter and a medium for translating brutal external reality into the means to survive within it. This was the soundtrack of the political and social transformations in Georgia. From Georgian monarchs to Russian ones, from the collapse of Soviet colonial blockade to the undermined democracy, independence in poverty and finally to 'satin revolution' of the transmitting forcelines. The 21 tracks from the TBA album are precise and straight sketches of the background between such different cultural influences, from the edge, between Asia, Russia and the so called western world. Music from the geographical top (Kaukasus) and very end of Europe in the south east, where despite the whole external chaos, it rounds up with one clear sentence: Georgia is like a spiritual Tokyo."
