Laurel Halo is an American electronic music composer and producer, currently based in Berlin. Since her now cult-status debut album Quarantine was released by Hyperdub in 2012, she has released a string of studio albums and EPs, ranging in sound from synth-pop to experimental, techno and ambient. Her most recent LP, Raw Silk Uncut Wood, was released by Latency in 2018. In addition to her reputation as a versatile composer, Halo is also radio and club DJ; having originally cut her teeth at the legendary freeform station WCBN-FM, she held a regular slot at the now-closed Berlin Community Radio (2014-2018) as well as a residency on London’s Rinse.FM (2018). Halo released the 68th edition of the prestigious DJ-Kicks series in 2019. She has collaborated with John Cale, Metahaven, Hodge, Eli Keszler, Julia Holter, Hatsune Miku and others.

For 2019, Laurel Halo has been granted the residency at Villa Aurora in Los Angeles.
