Flord King

Flord King

Book me

Surrounded by a deep spectrum of musical genres in his upbringing, Flord King has had a musical training from the start. Both as a listener and as a player, handling the guitar in different jazz ensembles.

Later on Elliot, which is his first name, took a step from musical path in his family to DJing. In the early days he and his bestie and DJ pal Adam Strömstedt started throwing their own outdoor parties called Röd Ballong. They always shared their tracks with the Stockholms rave crew until the cops eventually found their way into the woods to shut down the parties.

By the time the police had shut down almost every underground party in Stockholm, the clubs in town had to step in and provide the ravers. Elliot started playing at clubs such as Berns, F12 and Under Bron – where he later on became a resident.

Sharing the love for showing each other tracks since the early days, it was natural for Elliot and Adam to start a label. Together with Mohammed Al Harbiti they started their own imprint ’Lyssna Records’. Since ’lyssna’ means ’listen’ in swedish, it’s the perfect sum up of how you’re hanging out and sharing music with your friends.

When Elliot started producing music back in 2015, he slowly moved towards taking on his birth name again: Flord King. With the first two releases on his label Lyssna in 2016, where one of them contained the contemporary classic ’Dapper’, Flord King and his sound was born. This year Lyssna came with Flords first own release: Klassisk EP!

Bella Sarris

Bella Sarris

Book me

It all happened really early. Bella was just 15 years old when, she jumped her first fence into an electronic music festival in her hometown Sydney. She just wanted to experience the music. Little did she know that this fierce curiosity would soon lead her to island hop all the way to an even bigger playground, Ibiza, specifically, Space Terrace. This is where she first felt the desire to be on the other side of the decks. This dance floor alone inspired a feeling of wanting to create an experience for people, just like the one she had. Not long after, she began to teach herself a new kind of self expression through mixing.

Her fascination for the dance floor and hunger for musical experience has taken her around the globe, and taught her very quickly how to play with the big kids. With a two year residency at ENTER under her belt, she continues her education, constantly inspired by fellow artists and the dance floors they command. Being a student of her surroundings, her music continues to evolve with age and influence as she absorbs her musical experiences and strives to transmit the same energy in her sets.

In a time where genres blur and overlap, her style of mixing has no rules or restrictions just like her. You cannot put Bella or her sound in a box. Each must have the freedom to roam far and wide. The web of grooves that she weaves, like her musical education is ever progressing.

When she’s not dancing, or on a plane or in an airport, she resides in Berlin where she spends her days digging, sculpting her mixes and beginning productions. Her decision to be part of a new, smaller, boutique agency stems from her desire to ‘keep things tight’. Working closely with her friends allows independence and freedom of choice, and thus more control over her musical direction. She would rather grow and develop with a slightly dysfunctional but accepting family than be adopted into an already established one.

Bella forges ahead in an limitless environment. Observing what she hears and how the crowd responds to it, she applies the same intensity in her music that she felt when she jumped that first fence.

Philippa Pacho

Philippa Pacho

Book me

Pacho is born and raised in Stockholm, although she resides in Berlin since 2013. She found the love for electronic in her early adolescence, and it quickly became her passion. Closing her eyes and listening to whatever she found during her years of constant discovery. Melancholic pads and unidentifiable sounds brought her to a world of her own, that she new early on, she only shared with a few.

Pacho is a true minimalist in her approach one could say, finding the beauty in every single fragment that a track breaks apart into, something she takes to heart when digging for new tracks. To Philippa, a solid, round, and well-implemented kick-drum is imposing enough, often together with feathery hi-hats with spontaneous illusive sounds and quirky small details. But it’s always has to be done according to a simplistic modus operandi. She loves to keep the audience attentive with small changes that continues throughout the night and prefers small steaming floors to tell her story on.

Her minimal and uncompromising approach has made her a popular selector, playing at venues such as Tresor, about:blank and Sisyphos as well as becoming a resident DJ in Stockholms top establishment Under Bron. She also joins up from time to time with Esperanto-colleague Johanna Schneider, forming the duo STHLM Murder Girls.
