About: Halo Refuser
Halo Refuser is the producer moniker of prolific keyboardist Asher Fulero, and has been delivering exciting live-electronica experiences since 2009. His 7th album, 'Into Your Layers', was released independently in June and has already garnered some rave reviews in the press for it's chilled-out, downtempo spin on EDM. The blog Ganjaology called it '…expressive, expansive, seductive, sensational… beautifully crafted", while LostinSound described it as "…traveling through some sort of otherworldly cosmos, journeying through another realm while being hypnotized by a space funk orchestra."
Carrying prestigious endorsements as both a Moog Artist and a Nord Artist, Fulero uses a litany of modern production techniques to create his sonically rich studio pieces. These become manipulation fodder, re-warped and re-arranged from within Ableton Live (his main performance/production software for 10 years) to deliver a captivating and danceable DJ-style live set augmented with trippy wireless vocal FX, virtuosic live keyboards and melodica, looping, wireless controller antics, and more. He performs all-original material and related remixes/collaborations, taking the audience on a ride through Dubstep, Trip-hop, IDM, Glitch, Breaks, Downtempo, Psy-dub, and Experimental music, all refracted through the lens of a seasoned studio session keyboardist master.
Halo Refuser has been featured at trend-setting events like Decibel Festival, What The Festival?!, Emrg-n-See, Photosynthesis and many more, and has shared bills with luminaries such as Big Gigantic, Bluetech, Phil Hartnoll (Orbital), KJ Sawka, EOTO, Rena Jones, Russ Liquid, Kilowatts, David Starfire, Natasha Kmeto, R/D, Mike Slott and many more.
