Indulge in the captivation of her sleek blonde bob – you simply can’t afford to overlook it. HAAi, also known as Teneil Throssell, effortlessly transcends the boundaries of time and space on the pulsating techno dance floor. 

The Great Ascent

Born in Australia and refined in the vibrant London scene, HAAi’s sonic journey mirrors the diverse genres that have shaped her life. Originating from a psych-rock music background, HAAi was actually picked up when casually playing records in a small bar she used to work at. “My rise in music was a bit of an anomaly,” she told Gay Times. HAAi’s impeccable timing in cues and transitions pays homage to her instrumental prowess. From her inaugural 2019 project, “Systems Up Windows Down“, featuring hypnotic beats and tribal vocal elements, she has evolved seamlessly from house music to her now revered techno performances that dominate both clubbing and festival landscapes.
