upsammy & Valentina Magaletti

In just a few years, Thessa Thorsing, aka upsammy, has constructed an estimable catalog, laying out a crystalline vision of trippy, bass-heavy club music over a series of EPs and albums for labels such as PAN, Dekmantel, AD 93 and Nous'klaer Audio. Not just a producer, she's also a well-respected DJ with a residency at NTS Radio and Amsterdam's Garage Noord, and a multidisciplinary artist whose interest in architecture and the vibrational qualities of her surroundings helps shift her sounds into the most unexpected spaces.


At Unsound Kraków 2024, Thorsing will be for the first time appearing alongside iconic percussionist and composer Valentina Magaletti, whose versatile technique and idiosyncratic sound has seen her collaborate with a jaw-dropping assembly of artists. She's worked with everyone from Radiohead and Thurston Moore to Jandek, Mica Levi and Nicolas Jaar, and has ongoing projects with Al Wooton as Holy Tongue, alongside João Pais Filipe as CZN, with Cathy Lucas and Susumu Mukai (aka Zongamin) in Vanishing Twin, and next to Raime under the Moine moniker. One of the underground's most prolific and esteemed drummers, Magaletti is a true original who refuses to border her expression.
