It started with a residency at the legendary London haunt, Phonox. Then she nailed her debut Essential Mix for BBC Radio 1, delivering two powerful hours of inspired techno savagery which was crowned as Essential Mix of the Year. Things escalated. Now the Australian is booked at the most desirable venues in the world for any DJ worth their selections, playing b2b with taste-makers like The Black Madonna at Sunfall Festival and XOYO, Midland at Pikes Ibiza, and Jon Hopkins at a sold-out Brixton Academy, twice.
Her new label Coconut Beats has become a red-hot party brand, rocking a radio show which started on Rinse and now haunts Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide FM, and returning to Phonox with the ‘Beats Of’ series featuring guests like Red Axes and DJ Boring.
It’s been a very wild ride for HAAi these past few years, and a wild ride is exactly what you’re going to get when this daring selector brings her stomping basslines, rattling percussion and world music twists to Lost Paradise.
