BIO

Lila Tirando a Violeta from Montevideo, Uruguay has garnered a reputation for her enigmatic and versatile sonic repertoire. Newly signed to notable label Hyperdub Records, her influences range from experimental avant-garde music to hard drum percussions all while taking cues from field recordings and Latin American melodies.

In 2020, Lila released her album Limerencia through Mexico Citys label N.A.A.F.I, receiving widespread acclaim. The album was listed as one of the best releases of the year by the esteemed platform Bandcamp. Building upon this, Lila followed up with her 2022 full length album Desire Path, which further solidified her status as a preeminent figure in the electronic music landscape. The album earned accolades from renowned publications around the globe such as Pitchfork, DJ Mag and The New York Times.

In 2023, she released a collaboration album alongside Sin Maldita for London's iconic Hyperdub Records, here they draw away from dance music and delve into the language of dreams and digital realities, through surreal and mind-bending experimental scenarios, rendering a splintered yet rhythmically elastic, intense body of work laced with melody.

PRESS QUOTES

''Lila Tirando a Violeta, has quietly become one of the most interesting and important musicians in electronic music''

*Bandcamp Daily*

''She collects corrosive blasts of noise, spectral susurrations, and solemn pre-Hispanic flutes and ocarinas- a morose archaeological record of club music textures''

*Pitchfork*

''Alongside the Ecuadorean producer Nicola Cruz, Lila stitches together murmurs; a muted, stuttering half-dembow riddim; and layers of static disturbance''

*The New York Times*

''One of Uruguay's most prolific and promising artists''

*Resident Advisor*

''Known for her penchant for warped electronics, R&B motifs an absorbing altered vocals, Lilas style tends to veer from style to style on each release, with an experimental edge being the thread that ties them all together''

*DJ MAG*
