Kirill Shapovalov is an artist, creator and inspirer of the eclectic electronic project Haute Dance in St. Petersburg (Russia), young extravagant DJ known for artistic behaviour in his sets. Shapovalov is DJ resident of the main queer party in Russia, Popoff Kitchen (Moscow). Also Kirill is a frequent guest of European parties in cities such as Paris, Berlin, Vilnius, Antwerp and many others and not only in Europe. Kirill performed with his sets on the most respected radio broadcasts around the world, such as Rinse France in Paris, Test fm from Saint-Petesburg, 20ft Radio in Kiev and many others. His conceptual and at the same time provocative style is loved by the public in world famous clubs such as Wilden Renate, Opium club (Vilnius), Le Depot (Paris), Khidi (Tbilisi) etc. Kirill loves to collect various genres in his sets, always pays a lot of attention to emotional and vocal tracks, mixing them with hard underground dance tunes, so he is a master in combining styles both in music and in clothes, and this can be seen in his energy performances. It's hard to
