LC: Hey, guys, how are you doing today?
P: I’m doing pretty well and I’m so grateful to be here today with the “Lounge Club”.
A: I’m good actually dealing with the cold weather.
LC: We are so exited to have you on the cover. It’s especially cool since Anfica is famous as a fashion DJ. So my first question is to Anfisa: how would you describe your style?
A: My style is just a mixture of feeling and emotion as an artist I always try my best to recreate myself and my taste. I grew up in Russia were at my young age girls were so into getting updates in any type of new trending styles back in a day. But now is another vibe I have learned to listen to myself my, energy and my feelings. So I think my style is more like a freestyle without any boundaries.
LC: Do you mix brands in your closing same as tracks? What are your favourite designers?
P: That’s interesting! Anfisa and I are working to develop a clothing line so we don’t really think about other brands. We just do it according to the mood!
LC: Wow, that is so coll! We are looking forward to this launch, guys! Is chinese fashion different from European and US one?
P: Chinese society is almost 5000 years of history and the fashion scene is totally something intense and unique just as food and other sectors. But nevertheless Chinese youth are getting day by days close to Western fashion as they also riding according to the influence of social media. But I still appreciate some pure traditional Chinese fashion designers.
A: According to me there is a huge difference. In China tradition and culture will always be the front door of any fashion creation even if the modern society is taking over.
LC: What’s your favorite city you performed in China?
P: Shanghai is always the craziest place to perform the crowd can still follow the viens without the lyrics.
A: Especially the lantern festival!
LC: So we understood Anfisa is responsible for beauty in your duo and phinova is more about music. Did we get it right?
P: Actually we both are just in to all the process together.
A: Yeah together! But we know already what we have to do and how the process will be. For example, we use our strengths and weaknesses to get the whole puzzle. And we just use a natural connection to know who and how we can make each decision as we know each other very well.
P: That’s really how we decide for dresses and tracks even a picture and the music we gonna perform and how the track gonna sound.
A: Any way I’m the one in charge of everything that concerns the beauty side the fashion taste with presentation.
LC: How did you guys came up together as a duo?
P: Anfisa is a real inspiration for me. We knew each other even before I get into music industry. She was already a great international DJ with a lot of experience. She’s my inspiration and kind of mentor. So I remember when I was playing as resident MC in Guangzhou at Hepburn Club we were always on the phone.
