From her transcendental sets, standout EPs and ongoing contributions to New York’s underground party scene, Brooklyn-based DJ and artist Aurora Halal has swiftly become a distinguished voice and innovator in techno. Halal started throwing her own DIY raves in 2010, and in the years since, she’s continued to showcase some of the most exciting local and global talents in electronic music. She is also responsible for co-organising and curating Sustain-Release, a small weekend-rave in Upstate New York that has become a go-to pilgrimage for techno and electronic music fans worldwide. Halal’s artistry is unique, her sound bouncing from the ethereal to the relentless. Her 2015 EP Shapeshifter, released through her own label Mutual Dreaming Recordings, is a sleek and psychedelic example of her irresistibly contemporary appeal as a producer.
At the 2019 edition of No Bounds we had the pleasure of witnessing a live hardware set from Aurora that brought us her signature trance inducing, hazy and pummelling euphoria, a clear indicator for us that she undoubtedly had to make a return to the festival this year where we expect to see more of her sensual, often dark and playful dance floor intensity.
