Discovered through an all female DJ-battle in 2016, Sara Sukkha has quickly climbed the ranks of Vancouver’s electronic music scene. With her residency at MIA, and regular appearances at Celebrities, she has since supported the hottest names in entertainment including Rezz, Malaa, Gorgon City, Chris Lorenzo, AC Slater, Drezo, Kidnap Kid, Nora En Pure, Chris Lake, and more global artists while performing at Snowbombing Canada. In 2017 Sara also became part of the High Etiquette and Crystals Collectives, becoming a staple local name across multiple scenes.
Growing up playing the flute, singing and performing in marching band, Sara’s musical instincts date back to her youngest years. While living in the UK at a later time, she was heavily influenced by the underground sounds of Drum & Bass, Grime and Dubstep. Since this first introduction to electronic music, she has refused to settle for any one genre in the spectrum.
Chat with any member of Vancouver’s scene and you will quickly learn that limits and comfort zones are words that cease to exists in Sara’s dictionary. Today, her extensive music library spans from delicate deep house to experimental trap, ensuring she’s equally prepped for a B2B with Mr. Carmack, Nina Las Vegas, Billy Kenny or Gesaffelstein at any moment. With such a thirst for variety and reputation for unexpectedly surprising her crowds, defining a typical Sara Sukkha set can be an impossible task. Yet, three things remain constant in her performances - her gradual storylines, her infusion of different influences, and her gravitation towards the darker, heavier sides of all genres she chooses to play.
With a positive attitude, relentless dedication to perfecting her art and a hands-on approach in managing her own brand, Sara’s future is looking bright with many more milestones to conquer. Next, she is excited to incorporate her voice and folk music influences into productions of her own as she makes the leap into music production. Wherever she goes next, Sara Sukkha is proud to promise her crowds only one thing - to expect the unexpected.
