The 20 Most Exciting Artists For 2020
Memphis, Tennessee-born Bored Lord (real name Daria Lourd) is a producer and DJ. Making music since her early teens, she came up through the vibrant DIY Oakland scene, initially as part of digital collective Rare Nnudes before finding a home for her own releases on underground imprint Knightwerk. Now based in LA, her most recent outing was ‘Transexual Rave Hymns’, a Britney-sampling selection of rave-indebted sonics.
Committed to carving spaces for collective queer experiences on the dancefloor, her DJing style is free-flowing and flits between leftfield club sounds to techno, pop to nu metal. While her personal Bandcamp page is home to dozens of her own coveted edits and, earlier this year, Bored Lord dropped the second edition of her ‘Nu Metal Toolz‘ compilation – chopped up ’00s chart favourites refashioned into DJ tools – two of which you can hear in her riotous Dummy Mix below.
