Moscow's Outline Festival, a unique, continuous party organised by the ARMA17 team responsible for a number of Russia's best parties, is fast approaching. This year, the festival will play host to sets from Ricardo Villalobos, Byetone, Clock DVA, Puce Mary, JD Twitch, Veronica Vasicka, Palms Trax and many more.

Also set to play is Philipp Gorbachev whose set at Outline will mark the world premiere live show for his new album, Unlock The Box. The show will see him looking to go "beyond the existing club and festivalnyh formats to create a holistic show based on the synthesis of human movement, music technology and the world." Ahead of his appearance at the festival, below, Gorbachev has selected some DJs from Russia and Ukraine who are particularly catching his eye right now.

Outline takes place at the Moscow plant for automatic lines and special machines (MoZAL) from July 2-3. To find out more information, check the full line-up and get tickets, click here.


My favourite DJ from Kiev, Ukraine. This set is for СХЕМА, а fun ‘under the bridge’ party in Kiev.


Most likely, after the album premiere, you can find me enjoying Natasha’s set. The ARMA17 heart is very sensitive. This mix is created out of tracks from the ARMA label.

Nikita Zabelin

My трип brother Nikita gets dozens of demos from all over Russia every day for his weekly radio show ‘Resonance’ on Megapolis FM, so most of his sets are filled with new unheard music from unknown artists of all ages.

Ranishe Niyaak

This ARMA17 resident DJ has never left me feel bored in a club.
