Supported by electronic staples including deadmau5, REZZ, Black Tiger Sex Machine, Adventure Club, and more, HVDES brings a blackhearted yet thrilling aura to the next generation of electronic music. With deep roots in her local punk scene, HVDES possesses a versatile grasp of music across the spectrum, beginning with her earliest talents as a classically trained pianist. Armed with her influences in the rock scene and a laptop, HVDES found her sound by expressing her authentic self — turning the darkest corners of her life into music, HVDES offers a strikingly sinister sound that resonates on the dance floor. Much like the ruler of the underworld, the sheer intensity of HVDES’ trademark sound represents her fierce persona.
There’s a reason HVDES has released on labels such as Kannibalen, mau5trap, Brooklyn Fire, and more: she’s nailed the electro-driven midtempo sound in her own signature style. In 2019, HVDES unleashed her pivotal Stand Alone Complex EP via Kannibalen and made her mau5trap debut on We Are Friends, Vol. 9 with her single “Let Me Go.” What’s more, HVDES has toured alongside legendary acts such as The Bloody Beetroots and performed around the world, embarking on her first international tour in China in 2019.
For the misfits and the misunderstood, HVDES delivers both a comforting and cutting-edge perspective on the dark side of life. Creating beauty where there’s pain, the sound of HVDES cuts deep in all the right places.
