Valentina Nemchenkova is a model by day and DJ by night, moonlighting as Santa Valentina for those who know her from the behind the decks.
Valentina’s music career all began in 2014 in her hometown Yekaterinburg in Russia as a promoter and a party host at club Dom Pechati. In 2016 Santa Valentina moved to Moscow and was swiftly scooped up as a resident at the infamous Denis Simachev Bar and also became a regular name on the line up at St. Petersburg’s club Tancploshadka and Kuznya House. After solidifying her name in Russia, Valentina has since shared her passion to other parts of the world.
Like all good DJs Santa Valentina can’t be defined by one music genre, which makes her sets eclectic and unpredictable. Ready to ensnare dance floors of any size with heartbreaking Italo edits, dramatic house, dark electro and trance with only one thing being certain, her hypnotic swaying behind the decks will always keep the energy frisky and romantic.
On her new EP “Мальчик”, Valentina recites sensual poetry from the beginning of 20th century by a famous Russian poetess Anna Akhmatova, while Maxim Nazarov provides dark New Beat rhythms and vintage Fairlight electronics.
