Artist: Chloe Lula
Recorded on: 27 August 2021
San Francisco-born, Berlin-based artist Chloe Lula has been involved with the electronic music scene for more than a decade, helming record labels and throwing parties for years before beginning to DJ. She started producing her first live sets in 2019, when she completed a month-long artist residency with Drew McDowall of Coil. The experience ignited her confidence in composition and allowed her to combine her classical cello training with electronics, melding granular synthesis with acoustic riffs and metallic percussion to create an alloyed brand of droned-out industrial electronica. Many of these jams ended up becoming the tracks on her debut EP with aufnahme + wiedergabe, where she's been a resident for five years.
As a DJ, Chloe has played at Berghain, Tresor, Reaktor, Movement weekend in Detroit, and countless clubs, festivals, and DIY parties across Europe, the Caucasus, and North America. She's performed regularly alongside artists like Kangding Ray, UVB, Silent Servant, DJ Hell, Broken English Club, and Thomas P Heckmann, becoming known for atmospheric sets that dig deep into niche releases and span electro, wave, industrial, techno, acid, and synthy experimental. In addition to her career as a DJ, she is also a contributing editor at The Wire and a selector for her monthly radio show, ‘No Exit,' on Refuge Worldwide.
