The likes of Lindstrøm and Prins Thomas may soon find themselves facing competition from an extremely unexpected source. It seems that the Internet phenomenon known as Human Barbie (whose flesh-and-blood name is actually Valeria Lukyanova) has found a new outlet for her “talents” besides looking uncannily and downright disturbingly doll-like. Yep, Human Barbie has become a DJ. But don’t you worry, it’s not just any old generic sounds she’ll be spinning — she’s got a very specific approach in mind.
When Lukyanova kicks off her Space Barbie DJ tour in October, we’re informed that she’ll be offering up “futuristic deep house and space disco” everyplace from Latin America and Australia to the good ol’ US of A. But wait, there’s more. While you’re getting your cosmic disco on courtesy of the world’s favorite living doll, Human Barbie will be “using special words from ancient languages, which will result in a meditation right on the dance floor. During her performance the Human Barbie will show special signs with her hands demonstrating a deeper immersion into the atmosphere.” So you’ve got that to look forward to. Oh, and there’s an EP on the way as well.
