Australian-born, London-based DJ/producer HAAi has built a devoted following through immersive DJ sets and a carefully deployed series of singles and EPs. Her sharply executed productions expand an eclectic palette into a signature style ranging from hard techno to euphoric house, offering twists and turns along a journey into the farthest corners of your audiophile dreams. 

Ahead of her eagerly anticipated debut full length album, “Baby, We’re Ascending” — due out May 27 — HAAi graces the decks of the virtual FREAKS ONLY club for an hour-plus guest DJ mix. Find her there, careening through vast expanses of darkly ecstatic melodies and beats without ever losing control. The complexities therein could be taught and studied for years to come… or you could just turn it up really loud right now, and lose yourself to dance.
