We transformed the Russian Turkish Bathhouse into WAVEFORMZ: an eden of euphoria inspired by early 2000s dance games.

We brought acclaimed producer Hudson Mohawke under his alias DJ Mayhem: Mohawke’s self-titled “younger brother who loves hardcore music”. As support, we invited Rabit with his MC LEDEF, as well as Debit and Vapordog – all performing variations of hardcore.




Nitemind and Adrian Yu created lighting installations throughout all three floors of the bathhouse with rainbow-colored neon washes.

To amplify the WAVEFORMZ experience, we launched an alpha of PULSELIVE OP: a livestream rhythm game. Using the livestream on your browser, audiences online could play the rhythm game in real time with the performances during the event.

The event completely sold out in two hours.
