- SNO (UK)
SisBis is having another party at 24 Kitchen Street. CARISTA brings Detroit house, UK broken-beat vibes and bass stuff. SNO brings that Banna Hill vibe. We’re excited. You should be too. £7 ADV £10 OTD. Fundraiser for Refugee Women Connect. Bring donations and your dance-moves.
Carista Eendragt was born in Utrecht, The Netherlands to parents from Suriname. Her mother would play soul and jazz and Surinamese music while cleaning the house on Sunday mornings. As a teenager Carista trekked out from Utrecht to Rotterdam and Amsterdam to find records and more. Aged 18 she bought a pair of turntables and taught herself to mix with Youtube tutorials. Dutch dance floors at De School in Amsterdam and BIRD in Rotterdam are pleased she did. Her radio show at Red Light Radio and NTS Radio broadcasts her 'infectious positive energy and her distinctive taste'. She’s played iconic sets at Secretsundaze and Dekmantel. But it's her club night that SisBis might just be the most proud of her for.
The ethos is definitely something that SisBis can get behind: United Identies is 'dedicated to bringing talented and established (inter)national music artists together and letting them showcase their heartfelt magic towards you and yours.’ It also promotes inclusivity and diversity in the club scene. Carista, as a woman, and especially a black woman, feels it’s important to provide a counterpoint to the mainly white, older men who dominate. She says: “It’s time to shake things up, and it’s happening – slowly but surely, it’s happening.”
We can't wait to shake things up with her and listen to what she has to play.
“I love music, good music” SNO (STW Manchester Music Spotlight interview with Kim Khan)
SNO (Selina Nongaliphe Oliphant) grew up in the township of Bophelong in the Vaal, South Africa, where her uncle was the finest collector of Jazz, Soul, Funk, Afrobeat and Disco around. She’d play Bra Hugh Masekela and Whitney Houston on a turntable in her grandmother’s living room. When he sold his collection in 2015, SNO was heartbroken. And like people nursing broken hearts often do, she made a promise to herself to get the records back. We’re sure SNO still misses those records but nobody could say she hasn’t done the work. Once she’d sorted herself out some turntables, she headed straight to the record shops and started sifting. She’s built herself a brand new library and now I bet even her uncle would be impressed with her record collection. Furthermore she knows how to play them. Banana Hill regular and Reform Radio favourite, she’s moving on and on and on. Expect South African, R&B, soul and disco but SNO doesn’t really do ‘genre.’ She does do some serious dancing.
We can’t wait to do some serious dancing with her.
