Born and raised in the snowy city of Sapporo, Qrion began making her own sounds in high school as a hobby by using her phone. Taking inspiration from all the environments at her whim, Qrion’s signature sound oozes genuine artistry. She uses the noise of the world around her to create intimate songs anchored by energetic beats and lush synth textures. There’s a reason why she was named on Forbes Japan’s 30 Under 30 list: since the inception of her musical career, Qrion’s name has graced labels such as Anjunadeep, This Never Happened, Mad Decent, and more. Beyond her profound original productions, like her collaborative Sapporo EP with Spencer Brown and her solo debut Sine Wave Party EP via Anjunadeep, Qrion proves her mettle as an excellent remixer, too. She’s lent her future-focused sound to artists such as Alina Baraz, Lane 8, Andrew Bayer, TOKiMONSTA, and more to elevate a variety of songs across the spectrum of today’s hit music.
Ranging from soft, exquisite beats to ‘90s-adjacent dancefloor numbers, Qrion delivers a versatile flair to electronic music. Last year, Qrion took both her release and performance schedule to the next level: her self-released Waves EP explored the next chapter of her trademark sound while her Apple Music One Mix on Beats 1 took her talents across airwaves worldwide. Sharing the stage with Above & Beyond, Porter Robinson, and Tourist in previous years, 2019 saw Qrion join deadmau5’s Cube V3 Tour and perform landmark shows like ABGT350 Live from Prague, Anjunadeep’s London showcase at Printworks, and festival performances at NoisePop, Tomorrowland, and HARD.
Gaining momentum like never before at the beginning of 2020, Qrion touched down in cities across North America on tour with Spencer Brown and for festival appearances at EDC Mexico and Groove Cruise in Miami. Despite the global shutdown due to COVID-19, Qrion stayed connected with her audience: she’s performed a handful of live streamed sets for events such as Mat Zo's Stratosfest on Minecraft and Insomniac’s Day Trip showcase. In addition to her virtual performances, Qrion partnered with Spotify to curate Qrion’s track IDs, a regularly-updated playlist with more than 7,000 followers featuring her favorite tracks. To Qrion, innovation is key: her unwavering ability to remain close and connected with her community through music prevails despite the current limitations of the music industry.
