Avalon Emerson is a Berlin-based DJ and producder (they all are, I’m learning) who makes vast and spacey electronic dance music. She’s from Arizona and used to live in San Francisco, which puts the Berlin thing in context. Being an artist in San Francisco seems like a losing proposition at this point.
She apparently got a lot of hype a couple of years ago for remixing a Slow Dive song that I really like, Sugar For The Pill. I didn’t know about her nearly 10-minute remix of it until last night, but it’s good.
