Natalie Beridze, also known as Tusia Beridze or TBA, is a female music producer from Tbilisi, Georgia. She is also known as a member of Goslab -- a Georgian art laboratory, where she creates video works. The marriage of visual art and music eventually proved to be a strong influence on her releases on Maxernst, starting with her family and ending with friends and people she has worked with, such as Nika Machaidze aka Nikakoi, Erast and Gogi Dzodzuashvili, who have used Tusia's vocals and lyrics in most of their songs. Beridze embraces an eclectic mix of influences, including The Smiths, Lou Reed, Weather Report, David Bowie, Cocteau Twins, Björk, 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. The Other is released at the same time as Size and Tears as a mature counterpoint away from the former's childhood references. "Break," which was originally written for Ryuichi Sakamoto's Chain Music, made Mr. Sakamoto cry. "Hero" is quite brutal and dark, but then it all turns around again with the tenderness of "Father." Guest vocals also appear on the track "Beam Plaster" by Marcus Schmickler. The Other shows Tusia at her strongest and most committed. These tracks are love letters, not just summer kisses.
