Hear our latest NTS Radio show with Lyra Valenza
Danish duo Lyra Valenza were the first guest of 2021 on our NTS Radio show. Fracturing their way out of a snoozy 4/4 paradigm to flourish in the all-engulfing rave hyperspace, Lyra Valenza create pulsating tapestries of mischievous electronics that resonate deep within shape-shifting webs of hybridised jungle, footwork extravaganzas, high-velocity hardcore and glassy, future-ready atmospherics.
Behind the Latin-sounding moniker Lyra Valenza hide Jens Konrad and Hjalte, aka the Copenhagen-based duo at the helm of the cross-dimensional travellers’ haven, Petrola 80. Having released their debut, Synkronudspring I Tomt Bassin [Synchronized Dive into an Empty Pool], on their own label in 2017, the pair went on to explore further trance-y grounds on their noteworthy followup, Scan, Deliver, for Stephen Bishop’s ever-daring imprint, Opal Tapes, in 2018.
