The acts you can't miss according to Thomas Konings
Lauren Auder is a singer-songwriter born in the UK but who grew up in the south of France. He perfected his art as a teenager by producing and lending his voice to French rap and in electronic underground scenes. As a digital native, all his stuff was naturally crafted and produced from his bedroom. His first EP, ‘Who Carry’s You’, is a fusion of classical baroque pop, post-rock and modern electronica. Keep an eye on this baby.
Real name Lysa de Silva, Lyzza is a Brazilian Latina producer/DJ whose approach to the music industry makes me questions if she’s really only 19 years old: ‘Don’t let people step over you, stand up for yourself, and don’t be afraid to ask for things.’ She’s become a familiar face in Amsterdam; often playing her balie infused, restless sets at NYX and Progress Bar, as well as further afield at Berlin’s Creamcake and London’s UNITI – all spaces disrupting the mainstream, homogeneous club culture.
