Laska Omnia (Surround Caress) is a St.Petersburg – London based duo consisting of multi-instrumentalist Andrei Samsonov and vocalist Nastya IX. Originally started in March 2001 as Andrei’s collaboration project (guest vocalists were Marc Almond, Nicola Hitchcock and Angela Penhaligon), it gradually moved into a vibrant mix of Andrei and Alice McLaughlin’s self titled record Laska Omnia. It wasn’t an easy go, both, Alice’s mom and Andrei’s dad died during the recording, no wonder it came to a very sincere and heartfelt outcome.
After finishing their debut album Laska Omnia have played live with Future sound of London, Orb, GusGus and many other European electronic acts.
In 2004 Andrei and Alice have split up for their artistic reasons. Alice has formed Alice and a Majesty and Andrei carried on with his production work and solo career.
Times have changed in 2006, a new voice appeared Nastya IX.
Ever since then Laska Omnia have performed at numerous festivals and venues, receiving awards for best electronic act and new artist in 2006.
In May 2008, Laska Omnia have started work on a new album, exploring new fields of Dance electronica as well as keeping their haunting lyrics in tact. New album is due in 2009.
