Signed to the Hyperdub label, aya is another gem of the Manchester scene.

Her 2021 debut album, im hole, came as a shock, a work capable of questioning the world by twisting prejudices. On productions that navigate between radical dubstep, drone and techno art, aya's music is the backdrop for a contortion of views and certainties, an assemblage of pain and pleasure. Hailed by many media outlets as a major recent queer work, this debut album is a powerful and highly personal vision that comes into its own on stage. In addition to her philanthropic work as the self-proclaimed First Lady of the Bootleg, aya is in her third year of a monthly radio residency with NTS.
