Estonian singer and electronic producer Mart Avi has carved a unique “outernational” musical space for himself – something akin to that of a sonic spider on the World Wide Web.
Hooking operatic grandeur with unmapped future soundscapes for those with a wandering ear, Avi’s recorded output and post-theatrical live shows have been praised by the critics from the Quietus to the MOJO and from Moscow to Tainan. He’s the winner of the Estonian Best Electronic Album (2018), two-time winner of the Best Act of Tallinn Music Week (2017, 2018), and his albums have been the usual suspects on the top of the national end-of-the year lists. Besides four acclaimed solo albums, Avi’s discography includes two full lengths as a principal member of his teenage art rock group Badass Yuki. He has also co-created some weirdly wonderful torch songs with Ajukaja, the reverend of Estonia’s adventurous underground. Mart Avi’s double single Spark | Soul ReaVer and accompanying videos are released in March 2020, following his “quant soul” album OtherWorld (2018). The video singles are an introduction to his upcoming full length Vega Never Sets.
