A mainstay of Kode9’s Hyperdub label, Laurel Halo has always defied classification. Since debuting with the vocal-driven, artful synth-pop of ‘Quarantine’ in 2012, the Berlin-based electronic musician has dabbled extensively in ambient, dub and techno experimentation. She returns to The Hague armed with her latest release, ‘Dust’. Marking yet another shift in sound, ‘Dust’ sees Laurel Halo link up with the likes of Julia Holter, Klein and Eli Keszler to reimagine jazz song-craft for the 21st century.The result is a synthesis of all that came before it, yet sounds like nothing we’ve heard before.
Like Laurel Halo, French multi-instrumentalist Céline Schott has recently undergone a radical shift in her musical trajectory. Over the course of six full-length albums, all released under her moniker Colleen, she’s become renowned for her use of looping and dub effects on traditional instruments like the viola da gamba. Ditching the traditional in favour of her Moog delay and two piano synths, ‘A flame my love, a frequency’, is an intricate and deeply personal exploration of life and death to a meditative backdrop of delicate vocals and melodic lo-fi soundscapes.
