Less Distress, alias Polina Shelkova, is a Russian artist, dj and producer of electronic music.

You may first ask what « Less Distress » is about. It is a powerful mantra she decided to claim as a bulwark against inner demons. Under a very quiet and composed attitude, be sure that there is a force to reckon with: Less Distress knows precisely how to strike. Meticulous and genuine technician, she plays fifty shades of techno, punches hardgroove and rave, pays hommage to old school through industrial sounds: skillful, she studied. She knows her classics.

Coming from Tsar-City, Less Distress worked & learned by playing in Saint-Petersburg’s Mosaique club as well as mastered skills in Redrum bar she considers to be her “alma mater” special place. She later found a residential home at Blank club where she now drops fast-paced dance floor bangers on a regular basis. In 2019, she released her first EP, already iconic, on COUP label, neatly named « Tsar- City ». Prolific, hard working and with a great sense of commitment, Less Distress released more than 18 tracks since (RAW, ISMUS, MITSU2000, CRUNCH CONTROL, WILD PALM RECORDS…), including the conscientious « Ambivalent Nature » lately on «L’eau repousse les feux agressifs », a compilation released on MAMA TOLD YA.
