Timur Dzhafarov records and DJs under the name John Object. He makes sublime, hectic electronic music that reflects the over-saturation of modern life.
We met up in Ocean Plaza - the second largest shopping mall in Ukraine. We discuss difficult music, how a creative journey led from The Beatles to playing at Cxema - Kyiv’s most prominent techno party and how KFC is a metaphor for European capitalism. All of this in the coleslaw isle of a supermarket.
