Azu Tiwaline (Tunisia)
Azu Tiwaline is the name of a producer inspired by the need to explore her origins. A call for a different sound, organic and raw, vibrating in the great spaces of the African desert where trance music resonates. Like an ecstatic ritual, synthesizing her Tunisian heritage and her techniques, those of minimalist and repetitive electronic music.
Her first album is an exploration of her multifaceted identity. ‘Draw me a silence’, produced by I.O.T Records in 2020, unravels the links between Berber music, dub culture and techno hypnosis, inviting us to refocus on our senses and primal nature. This composition, a kind of mysterious polyrhythmic chiaroscuro playing with the contrasts between the visible and the invisible, has attracted all the lights of the alternative electronic scene.
Accompanied by this new warm and dense blast, Azu Tiwaline was invited in prestigious English labels like Livity Sound or Houndstooth, and to animate podcasts for Dekmantel, Crack Mag, Ilian Tape or Boiler Room. Recognized by her peers and diggers from all over the world, she has been playing in the best clubs and festivals in Europe, North America, Asia and Australia.
Her EP ‘Vesta’, released in June 2022, has marked the time of her first return to I.O.T Records, her historical label. A project born from her encounter with a fragment of asteroid, where the organic, the mineral and the astral are bound and collide. From the depth and density of matter to space and its lights, Azu Tiwaline’s music weaves, this time, bonds between the earthly and the celestial.
