♫♪  Aurora Halal - “FACT Mix 517”

I don’t think you can throw a rock down any street in Brooklyn without hitting an “electronic producer.” The quality definitely ebbs and flows as you navigate the borough, and I’ll be the first to admit that most of the current crop of techno artists bore the shit out of me. Of course, I digress…

I had known of Aurora Halal through her work in Innergaze, as well as her solo material and work with Ital, but I’ve always been more of a casual listener than a fan. That changed when I hit play on her recently released FACT mix, a 55-minute whirlwind live set of electro, acid, and deep house that she described as “the peak of my current live set.” After hearing this I wish I could get a chance to hear this heady techno brew live, so fingers crossed Halal makes her way West and fires up the clubs with these sick tunes.
