This saturday we welcome Avalon Emerson (icee hot & spring theory) to the Common via Berlin. A DJ and producer, she has quickly become a name to watch in electronic dance music. Her production style is as eclectic as her DJ sets, which omnivorously drift between the twin poles of passionate American house and cool European techno while incorporationg the disparate aspects of break-laden rave, ’80s pop, Italo and playful Belgian new bat.
Now residing in Berlin, She’s since found a musical home for her sound with Spring Theroy a label based jointly in San Francisco and Paris, which has released her acclaimed sophomore record “church of SoMa” and her forthcoming single “ Let me love and steal”.
Though she's a young talent, her original works and remixes have been recognized as a vital new voice in dance music by Resident Advisor, XLR8R, SPEX, Mixmag, DE: Bug, and NPR's All Songs Considered. A rare talent on the turntables, she plays longform sets — with portable isolator in tow — that are rooted in the explosiveness and narrative cohesion of old-school American DJing.
