Emerging London based DJ Aurora has become an office favourite as of late.
First introduced to us at our 18th bday series last October where she joined Coyote Records for our label takeover, her musical taste and opinions are held in high regard, writing pieces for publications like Pitchfork and The Wire whilst requested to provide guest mixes for the radio shows of Beatrice Dillon and Tobago Tracks.
Her DJ sets tend to be an amalgamation of ambient, experimental rhythms, emotional house and oddball techno. Also running the hotly-tipped Rye Wax party Spectral with a similar aesthetic, Aurora’s hosted a number of rising selectors in the past that include Anu, LOFT and Sybil Jason, whilst more recently experimenting with her own “spacious, squeaky techno” as Vampire Crab.
Welcoming Aurora to our series, the selections fit closely with the statement above, as she journeys through an hour of frantic techno and scattered bleeps that read like a broken signal to the unknown.
