Avalon Emerson (DE/US)
Raised in Arizona, Avalon started to make, release and play music in San Francisco before moving to Berlin in 2014. She rose to the top of the underground DJ world based on her reputation for technical skill and stylistically diverse DJ sets.
Avalon’s selections reflect a deep knowledge of house, techno, new wave, EBM and rave as well as the experience of an adaptable selector. Her style transcends the confines of time or genre by recontextualizing dance music from previous eras among contemporary sounds and her own productions and edits. In the past few years, she became a regular across all floors of Berlin’s famous Berghain nightclub and played at major festivals like Coachella and Pitchfork.
