Peruvian electronic musician Ale Hop crafts complex pop arrangements with an experimental edge, utilising effects to mutate her voice and electric guitar. The Berlin based musician won an RBMA New York residency in 2013 – the same year she released her debut album and made her first solo live performance at Boiler Room. She recently earned a degree in Sound Studies from Berlin’s University of the Arts, and her fourth album Bodiless has just been released by Buh Records. Ale Hop also makes soundtracks for films and audiovisual projects.
