Artist Biography:

Kedr Livanskiy (Russian for “Lebanese Cedar”) is the moniker of Moscow-born singer/producer Yana Kedrina. Her brand of lo-fi electronic pop draws on ’90s techno and jungle influences, and sounds as frozen and wintry as her surroundings, yet there’s a hopeful, longing quality to her songs. Born in 1990, a year before the dissolution of the Soviet Union, Kedrina started out as a punk musician before becoming enamored with electronic music while a college student. Inspired by international artists such as Inga CopelandLaurel Halo, and Florian KupferKedrina and her friends started a label/collective called Johns’ Kingdom, which quickly became one of Moscow’s premier outlets for underground electronic music. After posting a few tracks to SoundCloud, Kedr Livanskiy was signed to 2MR, a New Jersey-based electronic label co-founded by Mike Simonetti (founder of Troubleman Unlimited and Italians Do It Better) and Mike Sniper (Captured Tracks). Her single “Sgoraet” appeared in late 2015, followed by the January Sun EP in early 2016. Kedr Livanskiy‘s debut full-length, Ariadna, was released in September of 2017; the CD edition included the entirety of January Sun.
