Laurel Halo

Heavy, mutilated strains of electronic music with influence from the sounds of Detroit, UK and Germany – Laurel Halo’s music is a shapeshifting mess, moody and ecstatic, with flashes of rhythmic brilliance mediated by modal simplicity. The Michigan-born and Berlin-based artist has released both instrumental and vocal-driven records on the London-based label Hyperdub. Laurel also hosts a monthly show on Berlin Community Radio, having originally cut her teeth as a freeform DJ on the legendary WCBN-FM station in Ann Arbor, MI. She has collaborated with John Cale, Julia Holter, David Borden, Daniel Wohl and NH’Koxyen/Terepa, and has recorded a cover of the late folk singer, Karen Dalton, on a Tompkins Square compilation. Her most recent record is a double-pack for the London-based label Honest Jon’s. (Little Big)
