London's Southbank Centre has announced DJ collective Sisu as residents for Concrete Lates.
The crew will begin their tenure at the cultural hub this spring. Describing themselves as "an artistic community providing a platform to educate, inspire and showcase aspiring female DJs and producers through DJ courses, events, radio shows, a mix series and workshops", they have been active in Berlin and the UK since 2017, hosting sessions in London, Liverpool, Newcastle and Bristol.
London’s Anu is an infectious kind of personality. Her un-dogmatic DJing and illustrations reflect the world around her in all its diverse glory. On her regular radio shows at both the BBC’s Asian Network and NTS, Anu can rope together stretches of progressive house and UK funky with a Wings track, or rub a vintage Bollywood singer like Asha Bhosle up against Gucci Mane. Nothing’s off limits. Her illustrations similarly comprise scribbled meditations on the people and moods that surround her on the street and the TV; a multimedia diary of Anu’s rich day-to-day.
