HAAi – ‘Systems Up, Windows Down’ EP

MUTE’S LATEST SIGNING ANNOUNCES HER FIRST RELEASE FOR THE LABEL

SYSTEMS UP, WINDOWS DOWN EP – OUT NOW

HAAi and Mute are delighted to launch the label’s latest signing with an EP release, Systems Up, Windows Down, out today.

Listen to ‘6666’ here:

Signing to Mute is a dream come true for HAAi. She first came to Mute’s attention via a remix for Daniel Avery, from there the rest is history: in addition to the new EP, she is starting to ready an album, which she says will have a more modern and contemporary sound. “I’m really excited about being part of Mute, it blows my mind to think I have the support and encouragement to do all the things I would like to do and maybe I wouldn’t have had the confidence to do on my own.” HAAi is already eager for the next stage of her producing career, spending more time in the studio to record with live instruments and working with other musicians – “to make the whole process a bit more three dimensional.”

The new EP, Systems Up, Windows Down feels like an evolution from the previous releases on her own label. With a more mature, dancefloor focused sound, full of heavy basslines, breaks and crisp percussive electronics, she has experiment more and pushed the boundaries of her production. The title of the EP harks back to a youth far from the club circuit in remote rural Australia where there wasn’t a hell of a lot to do. Weekends were spent driving around the town, along the coast and beach roads, with the windows down blasting music from car radios.

The tracks lean heavily of her personal archive of field recordings, both from her own travels and scouring the internet. The opening track includes the revving of her step dad’s sixties Mustang engine, on ‘It’s Something We Can All Learn From’ she uses an almost forgotten artefact from a trip to Marrakech and ‘CHONKIBOI’ is grounded in an earwormy ritualistic vocal. 

‘6666’, the last addition to the EP and one of her favourites, was initially composed for the Genesis stage at Glastonbury and has since grown to be a monster of a tune, adding a tougher element to the EP. The closing track (which names the EP) is a ten-minute burner which has been garnering love over the summer festivals.

HAAi, the Australian-born London-based DJ, aka Teneil Throssell, rose from the ashes of a disbanded psych band, where she was vocalist and guitar player and, inspired by a chance trip to Berghain, started DJing by digging into a wealth of music on the psychedelic spectrum from around the globe. Her Coconut Beats parties in Dalston led to shows on Rinse FM and Worldwide FM, and eventually to a prestigious residency at the London club Phonox where Throssell played Saturday nights for two years (up until autumn 2018).

As her residency came to end, BBC Radio 1 broadcast her Essential Mix which went on to win the accolade of the Essential Mix of the Year, alumni of which include Helena Hauff, Caribou, Flying Lotus, Nicolas Jaar and Ben Klock.  HAAi was then granted a monthly Radio 1 slot, which continues into 2020.
