As a producer and composer, Delia Beatriz drifts seamlessly from avant-garde and drone modes into experimental dance music without hesitation. As a DJ, her selections burn the unmistakable swing of Latin club music into ironclad techno frameworks.
Her debut album “Animus” was released in 2018 by Mexico City collective N.A.A.F.I., and wove pneumatic club sounds with melancholy ambience, receiving acclaim from FACT, Resident Advisor and Noisey. While she was studying a graduate degree in Music Technology at NYU, Beatriz assembled her most defining statement to date, “System”. This EP solidified the duality of her unique approach, reconstructing tribal guarachero music using sounds snatched from industrial techno. “System” was universally acclaimed, and placed prominently on year end lists at FACT, Pitchfork and Resident Advisor.
In February 2022, Debit released album “The Long Count”, an ambitious electro-acoustic tome that delves into the past to peer into the future, which was deemed Global Album of the Month by The Guardian. Using research she made into Mayan wind instruments, Beatriz developed digital instruments and harnessed machine learning to compose music that feels completely out of time. The album was released on legendary British imprint Modern Love.
