DJ and producer Avalon Emerson is one of the leaders of techno’s new school, turning heads over the last few years with a series of rapturous records full of detail and melody. There’s a level of fine-grained personality that shines through her music, setting her apart from the rest of the greyscale techno herd. “Try as we might,” she said in a 2016 interview with CRACK, “we can’t escape where we came from. You hold a fondness for the place you started out in, even if you wanted nothing more when you were 16 than to leave that fucking place.” Emerson’s songs don’t just bang in the club; they give you a vivid window into her life, the places she’s been, and where she wants to go.
