Causal Chain founder laced is a DJ and producer from Montreal, Quebec, drawing influence from UK bass, IDM, techno and breakbeat. In 2018, she released her first EP “Define This Mood” under her moniker Lacedetail on Toronto label Summer Isle. She is part of Saudade, a musical project inspired by industrial dub, ambient and jazz with harpist Marilou Lyonnais Archambault. For the past 4 years, they have been hosting a monthly show on Montreal web radio n10.as. In 2020, she co-founded the label audio bambino with her partner and close friends while discovering an infinite realm of club sounds all over the Internet.oko is laced’s sophomore EP under her new moniker, which takes a new path compared to her previous noise explorations. Drawing inspiration from ambient music, dreampop, video game and anime soundtracks, breakbeat and IDM, the music conveys a dream world where the artist tends to escape in. The EP was produced over the course of 2021 since laced’s 2020 MUTEK performance in Montreal, taking a melodic approach in contrast to her more percussive productions. oko is best consumed under a pile of warm blankets or under the rain, its energy being one of catharsis, contemplation, healing and dreaming.
