Opening our inaugural festival edition of Luminate is one of the most exciting producers to emerge out of the UK this past decade. aya (fka LOFT) of Hyperdub records, will present a specially-commissioned live performance in which she reconfigures her sound for d&b audiotechnik’s 360 Soundscape system, exploring its boundless sonic potential. Closing the chapter on her disorientingly creative debut LP ‘im hole’, this is a one-off, unmissable show for fans of off-kilter, mutated club music.
aya packs force into tiny details to create bracing, emotive, experimental music. Her debut LP im hole was released on Hyperdub in 2021. From its track titles, to its emotional drive, the album was heavily influenced by aya’s upbringing in West Yorkshire, while its array of intricate sounds draws on post-dubstep, grime and musique concrete.
