Aurora Halal (LIVE)

As the creator of the Sustain-Release festival, Aurora Halal knows exactly what it takes to capture both the imagination and the physical attention of outdoor raves. She's become known for playing DJ sets of immersive, thoughtful techno that corkscrew through arpeggiated synths and dense, body-moving acid, but when she visits Junction 2 it'll be to bring her hardware and her signature brand of trippy, hi-definition techno for a live performance. Listening to Aurora's music, you get the sense that she understands and appreciates techno's history and variety, using everything from Detroit's lush pads to Berlin's grit and grunt to create her mesmeric passages of electronic bliss.
