New York-based producer Laurel Halo is back with the follow-up to her 2012 acclaimed album, Quarantine. She’ll release her new EP, Behind The Green Door, on May 20 via Hyperdub.
According to a Spin interview, Halo spent the last couple of months playing a bunch of shows throughout Berlin, which broadened her horizons and influenced her new production and the way she plays live. Sick of staring at a computer screen, she said that she’s switched to MPC to produce this four-song project, and it’s been quite the creative journey. “It’s really exciting,” she said in the interview. “I’m super happy to have made this transition. Sonically it’s obviously way better.”
