Alice Longyu Gao

The outrageously viral “Rich Bitch Juice” is just the beginning of Alice Longyu Gao’s electronic arsenal. Hot off jammed-to-the-rafters sets at SXSW, she continues to wreak sonic terror upon audiences while still making them dance, as we’re sure to see at Sled Island 2024. Try out her latest single “Burn The Witch” – a collaboration with PVRIS and Tommy Genesis – for a taste of her fury.


Somewhere between cold wave and doom lies Kristina Esfandiari’s NGHTCRWLR. The mind behind King Woman, Dalmatian and Miserable builds an eerie cosmos of synth, howling, dissonance and beats that conjure up an experimental horror movie. Fittingly, Esfandiari appeared alongside fellow curator pick LUCY in Boy Harsher’s album and film The Runner.
