Starting with rhythmic patterns and melodic pulses, American composer Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith creates lush and exciting worlds of sound. With synthetic noises that reference nature, and textured acoustic sounds, Smith’s latest release EARS is a rich and rewarding sonic world to get lost in.


As a DJ who focuses on bringing new and unknown sounds to the table, Laila Sakini has become quite versatile in her offerings. She’s played coveted events in Melbourne, Sydney and Paris from primetime slots at club parties like Bamboo Musik and Animals Dancing to launches and openings at Perks and Mini (P.A.M), ACMI, and Carriageworks.
