CULTTASTIC is a Ukrainian-American synth-pop music producer and recording artist. The former competitive rhythmic gymnast and figure skater began composing music as CULTTASTIC while recovering from a contortionist-training injury. She independently writes, produces and records her music.
"Nothing will destroy this... Step into my Matrix," she entices on M-Theory, alternating between lyrics in Russian and English, gliding over the sounds of hissing hydraulics and engines ripping through laser-lit tunnels. CULTTASTIC views music as a form of magic, and recurring themes in her songs include transcending physical limits, isolation, invincibility, exploring hidden desires and dancing among alternate realities.
"I’m the night/You’re the rain in the night," she purrs on I’m the Night, her debut single that was released as two contrasting versions: the candy coated, glitch J-pop rendition and the creepy, ethereal witch house mix. CULTTASTIC edits her music videos and designs elaborate visuals to embody her sound. Her otherworldly look resembles an alien mannequin blending into its environment.

CULTTASTIC UNVEILS SINGLE
"UGLY IS BEAUTIFUL"
(New York, NY– December 21, 2018) Ukrainian-American icy synth-pop producer and recording artist CULTTASTIC independently releases “UGLY IS BEAUTIFUL.” The single is available on major digital and mobile platforms worldwide.
“Ugly is Beautiful” is an electronic dance song about feeling beautiful, confident and autonomous. The song blends dark wave and synth-pop sounds with dreamy, melancholy vocals over 90s nostalgia house grooves and a dark, moody breakdown. Culttastic independently wrote, produced and engineered the song, recording in Brooklyn, New York and Houston, Texas. The song was mixed by Culttastic and Cass Irvine and mastered by Cass Irvine at Wired Masters. A monochrome image of Culttastic gazes into a shadowy, haunting polychrome reflection for the single’s cover art photographed by DJ NoiseJam.
“I wrote this song to gain perspective when I was feeling reclusive and afraid to face the world. The lyrics offer encouragement to throw yourself out there, in my case to release some new music that’s long overdue. I realized that beauty is inherently surprising and therefore likely to be found where I least expect it, even in something I might consider somewhat ‘ugly,’ which is a word that serves as a fatalistic synonym for imperfection. I wrote the song hoping to inspire people to wear disapproval as a badge of honor instead of trying to fit in.” -CULTTASTIC
Everything that’s ugly is beautiful/ Everything you think is ugly is beautiful
Stars in the sky are falling/ Infinite light/ I’ll take you there
Nothing is real/ There’s nothing/ There’s nothing/ There’s nothing
Think of both/ I tried to tell you/ You wouldn’t listen (what's at stake)
Faking your way through it/ I don’t believe you/ Just let me show you
I’m not afraid now/ I’m not afraid now
"Culttastic’s deep understanding for sound has delivered an
alt-pop track that is as close to perfect as you can get."
"We may have hit the MTV Iggy jackpot with Culttastic.
The totally solo producer is a true millennial pastiche... and she really is the future."
- MTV IGGY
"Mind altering... a very intriguing Ladytron meets Crystal Castles sound!"
-THE BURNING EAR
