Leftfield House & Techno
IHA is a Vancouver based curator and organizer, well known in the underground scene for their playful approach through unlikely blends and eccentric sound design. Their genre-bending mixes and production are shapeshifting and emotionally charged, guided by spontaneity and highly influenced by their environment. 2023 alone sees them sharing the bill with prominent artists Rhyw and Om Unit, and have been featured in festivals across the pond: Basscoast (BC), Future Forest (NB), Active Passive (BC), Osmosis (OR), and ADE (AMS).
With an ethos centered around community building, IHA cultivates connections and skill-sharing through collective work with Acceleration (FM radio and livestream), Nautilus (ambient and downtempo event series), Discord, as well NAGA (label underway). With releases under Vancouver's own PPRZ and on many podcasts and beyond in only the last two years, they are also known to perform the occasional ambient/experimental live PA.
