DJ & VJ
Aurora Halal is a producer, DJ and creator of Brooklyn’s influential Mutual Dreaming party series & the Sustain-Release festival. Shadowy and psychedelic, her hardware live & DJ sets have a hazy sensuality and metallic dance floor intensity that’s at turns playful, dark, euphoric and emotionally vulnerable. In all her projects she treats dance music as an arena for transformation, and since 2010 her events have been rooted in an underground, DIY approach that pushes forward-thinking sounds, production and ideas. She’s a resident at NYC’s Nowadays, a regular at Berghain and De School, and has spent the last 10 years touring like-minded clubs, raves and festivals all over the world.
Mexican DJ and producer Paulina Rodriguez aka Paurro naturally fell very early into the embrace of house, UK garage, breakbeat, bass, and techno music. Paurro found a new home in the dance community which gave her a platform to advocate for LGBTQ+ rights and to elevate other artists’ work, with a big focus on those from her home country. With an iconic essence grounded in house music, Paulina draws a fine line between her organic and energetic sounds, providing happy and unforgettable sets that leave a mark on the soul. Ranging from deep and minimal to uplifting and melodic sounds, often grazing 90s house, her true aim is to provoke a feeling of true freedom through song and dance.
