Kontra's back for the Autumn season! We're ridiculously excited to announce a very special guest for their Leeds debut.
— HAAi — HAAi’s ability to single handedly pack out Phonox every Saturday night speaks for itself. Since picking up the mantle a year ago she has gone from a little known name to one of the most talked about DJs in London, frequently featuring on heavyweight line ups with the likes of Jackmaster and The Black Madonna.
HAAi began her music career as vocalist and guitarist as part of Aussie psych band Dark Bells. Later turning her ears towards dance she turned heads as two-year long resident at Dalston’s Ridley Road Market Bar, impressing Phonox enough to hand her the keys and take over from Jasper James. HAAI’s ability to seamlessly transcend disco, house and techno topped with globally sourced rarities makes her truly one to watch!
Alongside an intense gigging schedule, HAAi has recently released a new EP on her own imprint Coconut Beats. The “Be Good” single eschews the traditional dance floor template and displays her incredible versatility and ear as a producer, drawing from eastern sounds and providing her own stunning vocals to form a gorgeous, textured piece of downtempo house.
We are incredibly excited to give HAAi full reigns of the Wire sound system. With a 3-hour slot to play with, we really cannot wait to see what she brings in her bag…
