LAUREL HALO USA

Heavy, mutilated strains of electronic music with influence from the sounds of Detroit, UK and Germany –  Laurel Halo’s music is shape-shifting, moody and ecstatic. From her Berlin apartment, the Michigan-born producer had critics raving in June when she dropped latest album Dust, out via London’s iconic Hyperdub label. The New York Times was impressed – check their interview here. Three releases on from her acclaimed 2012 debut, Quarantine (Wire Magazine’s ‘Album of the Year’) Laurel fuses experimental, synth-pop, and abstract sounds to depart from the conventions of electronic music, such as tracks ‘Until I Make U Smile’,  ‘Jelly’ and ‘Carcass’ only enhance the club atmosphere. Watch Halo show off her prowess in a recent NYC set, broadcast via Boiler Room here.  And check out the jazz lover talk Sun Ra and more on her recent ‘What’s In My Bag?’ shopping trip at Amoeba Records here.
