Pōneke electronic artist Ludus aka Emma Bernard is following up a winning run of releases and live / DJ performances with the launch of the producer's keenly-awaited debut album Two Of The Same, the first long player from new local imprint Strange Behaviour Records. Responsible for curating last year's Artists In Residence collection of Aotearoa tunes created during lockdown, as well as ace tracks via MARGINS and A Low Hum, Ludus will be bringing the party at Valhalla in early March alongside an all-mega lineup of crowd movers featuring Nice Girl (Public Possession), Current Bias (Related Articles) and B.Lo, plus otherdimensional live visuals courtesy of Lady Lazer Light — you can dance all night and then walk around dazed at Newtown Festival the next day. If you simply can't wait until next month, lucky punters can catch Ludus performing at Mermaidens' Mermgrown festival at Workingmens Bowling Club this Saturday — grab tickets for the strictly limited capacity Two Of The Same album release party while you can...

UPDATE 3/03/21: This week's Ludus 'Two Of The Same' album release party has been postponed due to Covid-19 restrictions, with new dates to be announced.

Press release:

Strange Behaviour is excited to announce the release of Ludus' gorgeous debut album, Two of the Same.

To celebrate we’re throwing a party in early March, with faves Nice Girl, Current Bias and Lady Lazer Light joining the SB crew for our very first show at Valhalla.


Across nine dreamy compositions, Ludus aka Emma Bernard delivers a record drenched in emotion, one which perfectly balances the electronic and natural world.

Written and recorded over the last couple of years using a variety of software, the Pōneke-made Deluge synthesiser and field recordings, Two of the Same features a strong connection between composition and live performance.

Emma’s an integral part of the Strange Behaviour family and a fantastic DJ, whose sets are crafted with the same meticulous level of detail you’ll find throughout Two of the Same.

NICE GIRL (Public Possession/Melbourne)

Melbourne-based Nice Girl is one of our favourite producers right now, with two brilliant EPs on hot Berlin record label Public Possession and a slot at the upcoming Beacon Festival. Ruby’s also a killer DJ, and we’re stoked to have her join us for her first appearance at a Strange Behaviour show.

CURRENT BIAS (Related Articles)

Whether creating open-eared club slammers or sketches of glacial beauty, Poneke-based queer sound designer, producer and DJ, Current Bias is one of the freshest voices in Aotearoa’s electronic music scene. After a stunning late-night set at one of our Laundry nights, we welcome Jack back to Strange Behaviour.


Lady Lazer Light is a visual artist like no other. The incredibly talented Erica Sklenars creates both solo performative works and collaborative audio-visual installations while working with sound artists and musicians. Expect her to transform Valhalla into a barely recognisable and stunning environment that perfectly matches the transgressive nature of the music.
