As a DJ and producer Lily Haz's musical exploits always flaunt a hypnotic quality, drawing from her diverse influences that span hip hop, house and disco to dub, new wave and IDM.
In her home of Tel Aviv she hosts a regular show on Teder FM called Colour Memory, as well as being affiliated with the Tofistock crew, a label for whom she's released music for. Her releases have also made their way to labels like Tom Tom Disco and Night Noise and her carefully curated DJ sets to Izabel's Lullabies For Insomniacs and LYL Radio.
She takes control of this week's Wednesday Alternative mix bringing a melting pot of entrancing rhythms, new wave oddities and low slung hip hop...
