Bass and breaks from a versatile UK DJ
Or:la’s the kind of versatile talent that DJs envy, able to seamlessly shift from big-room warehouse sets to lush deep house, passing through her preferred territory of breaks and bass-heavy UK sounds she grew up listening to. The young Irish DJ and producer is not even 30, but already runs two labels (Deep Sea Frequency and Céad), and has been named one of Radio One’s Resident DJs for the forthcoming season. She’s done it all the quiet way, touring and putting in the hard work: whether organising the kind of relaxed parties she wanted to attend in her adopted hometown of Liverpool, or looking to support other young artists through her labels and events. If she delivers a set that’s anywhere near as slick as her admirable 2019 podcast for Resident Advisor, Sónar 2022 is in for a treat.
