Aurora Halal is a producer, DJ, and creator of Brooklyn’s influential Mutual Dreaming party series & the Sustain-Release festival. Shadowy and psychedelic, her hardware live & DJ sets have a hazy sensuality and metallic dance floor intensity that’s at turns playful, dark, euphoric, and emotionally vulnerable. She’s 4 years into a residency at NYC’s Nowadays, is a regular at Berghain and previously De School. Aurora has been entering 2022 at full pace, dedicating her energy towards both her sets and productions.
Wata Igarashi is one of the leading figures of Japanese techno, emerging from the country’s deep relationship with electronic music. ‘Cosmic drama’ sums up Igarashi’s sound, conveying the unique combination of power and psychedelia that defines his work. Igarashi’s approach reflects a certain Japanese aesthetic, a recognition of the force and beauty that comes from paying careful attention to details, making sure everything is exactly as it should be. His productions are precisely engineered for maximum impact, with Igarashi’s signature arpeggios standing out on the dancefloor. This mentality is equally present in his DJ sets and live performances, where his tight mixing and control over frequencies create a potent blend of energy and emotion.
