Sarra Wild is a DJ, promoter, curator and activist based in Glasgow. They/she is founder of club night and arts platform OH141, performing at and curating events and festivals in Scotland and internationally. Born to Algerian and Senegalese parents and raised in Glasgow, Wild's early sonic genealogy spans from Algerian Rai and Lebanese pop music that they were immersed in at home, before they graduated to radical French rap via the La Haine soundtrack and Underground Resistance during forays into Glasgow's infamous techno underground.
Cõvco sonically births a utopian place of chaku chaku. She explores a limitless approach to mixing, a soundclash of experimental/warped club beats mixed with her live melodic/chants acapella edits – her signature dancefloor experience.
Hasani is a singer/songwriter, producer and DJ born in Brixton and raised in The Gambia. His EP BoomByeBye explores romance, self expression and self love practised in the midst of the homophobia and violence faced by queer people of colour globally. BoomByeBye works with melancholy; his DJ sets extend this to evoke joy and liberation through collectivity and dance.
