Avalon Emerson (Astra Takes Photos)

San Francisco-based producer Avalon Emerson is readying her debut 12-inch vinyl release. Coming soon on Icee Hot, “Pressure”/”Quoi!” includes the two title tracks on the A side. Side B features two remixes of “Quoi!” from Tuff City Kids (Running Back’s Gerd Janson and Lauer), including a “Techno” mix and a “Disco” mix. The set will be available for digital download on January 13. Expect a vinyl release from Icee Hot soon. For now, you can preview clips from “Pressure”/”Quoi!” below via SoundCloud.

While “Quoi” is an outstanding new single, it isn’t her first. Avalon Emerson has previously released dance-worthy digital tracks including “Caroline” and “Church of SoMa”. We premiered her Cybernetic Edit of Blue Hawaii’s “The Other Day” earlier this year. No Fear of Pop recently interviewed Avalon Emerson, providing an in-depth profile of the talented local artist.


As one of the Bay Area’s most promising new DJs, Avalon Emerson can be caught spinning vinyl at various nightlife institutions around town. She is a resident/co-founder of San Francisco’s new Play It Cool series, and will be supporting Kim Ann Foxman at Public Works Loft on January 11. Tickets are available now.
