Laurel Halo, born 1985 in Detroit, is an electronic music composer, performing artist and DJ, based in Berlin. Since the release of her debut album Quarantine (2012) on the pioneering London label Hyperdub, she has established herself as a distinct innovative voice within electronic music. Drawing from a range of music lineages, her considered approach has enabled her to maintain a signature aesthetic across a stylistically diverse output, traversing pop, ambient, leftfield club, experimental electronica and film score.  

Laurel Halo is the Villa Aurora Fellow of Musicboard Berlin.
