MV008 Aroha

Bio
AROHA is notably acclaimed for her club-ready set lists that evoke the crowds before her. Navigating a sure-fire trim of the most unique, energetic and driving musical attire across house and techno with hues of breakbeat, electro, footwork, future garage, jungle and UK bass - truly aligning with her studio signature.

Fusing a sheer devotion for music that moves people in every way and creating her own lane, AROHA has welcomed prodigious highs in her career with many headliner shows, festival spots (both as a solo artist and half of duo Aroha & Tali, with award winning MC Tali) and she has opened parties for the likes of Disclosure, Ben UFO and Kaytranada, as well as being voted as New Zealand’s Best Club DJ.

AROHA’s debut ‘No More Jenga’ EP and the remixes, including remakes by rising Melbourne house and techno export Luke Alessi, liquid drum & bass royalty Tokyo Prose and NZ afro acid duo Kédu Carlö received support worldwide from artists RÜFÜS DU SOL, Eelke Kleijn, Doc Scott, Dillinja and Yolanda Be Cool.

Her remix of Kédu Carlö’s “10ft Tall” and latest release "Escape to Eora Country (Under a Blood Flower Moon)" sees AROHA showing off her versatility. With new music being coming out on Melbourne/London label Phenomena, plus recent performances at Australian festivals Let Them Eat Cake, WOMADelaide and Gaytimes, and a massive Aus/NZ Winter 2022 Tour schedule ahead; Aroha certainly has her name carved.
