LAUREL HALO / USA
WOS CLUBBING X RED BULL MUSIC
Heavy, mutilated strains of electronic music with influence from the sounds of Detroit, UK and Germany – Laurel Halo’s music is shapeshifting, moody and ecstatic. The artist has been a mainstay of the London-based label Hyperdub, who released her breakout, divisive debut album Quarantine in 2012. The record received critical acclaim, and was named Wire Magazine’s Album of the Year. Since then she’s toured extensively and released three more albums – 2013’s Chance of Rain for Hyperdub, 2015’s In Situ for Honest Jon’s, and Dust for Hyperdub un 2017. Halo has also composed the soundtrack for Still Be Here, a Transmediale/CTM film commission starring the Japanese virtual popstar, Hatsune Miku, which debuted at Berlin’s Haus der Kulturen der Welt, and was most recently shown at the Barbican Hall in London. Her latest EP, Raw Silk Uncut Wood has been released by Latency on July 13th 2018.
