Up Late returns for a one-off special event over summer!
Surrounded by GOMA’s summer exhibitions (which will be open until 9:45 pm), Summer Up Late will feature DJs, bars, a sensory tour and live music. Catch independent Sydney-based producer and songwriter Lupa J at 7:30 pm, acclaimed Michigan-born Berlin-based electronic producer and performer Laurel Halo at 8:40 pm, plus beats and good vibes from local DJ Black Amex from 5:30 pm.
Blending her Mid-West techno roots with sounds of her adopted home in Berlin, Laurel Halo creates ambient and genre-defying tracks. Her 2012 debut album Quarantine received rave reviews, climbing the charts to reach number ten on the Album of the Year list in the Washington Post, and received Album of the Year in Wire Magazine. Her most recent release Dust (2017) has been heralded as ‘powerful, consuming, yet also strangely comforting’ by the Guardian.
Known for her soft yet commanding vocals layered over moody electronic beats, Lupa J has attracted international attention since her first release when she was only 15 years old. After being nominated as a finalist in the Triple J Unearthed High competition for two consecutive years, Lupa J’s profile has continued to rise. Lupa J is currently celebrating the release of her third EP A House I Don’t Remember (2017).
