Kiara Scuro (GB)
A Kiara Scuro set is always full of surprises. From psychedelic slow burners and abstract techno to hypnotic synths, driving acid and euphoric trance, often with a cheeky curveball thrown in for good measure, the London-based duo weave effortlessly between sounds, even when passing the mantle back and forth track for track.
Born on a whim as a radio show back in 2016, Rosie Ama and Nadia (aka ZaaZaa) came up via their monthly broadcasts on South London’s Balamii Radio, where they’ve been residents for over four years. Giving listeners a taste of what you might expect to hear from them in the club, the duo have learnt to feed off each other’s energy - forget about genres, it’s the mood that drives them.
As comfortable warming up the dance floor as they are bringing the night to an electrifying close, the pair have earned themselves regular appearances at some of the capital’s best night clubs including Corsica Studios, The Cause and The Waiting Room. Overseas, their shapeshifting club sets have taken them to city's like Lithuania, Helsinki, St Petersburg, Lisbon and Berlin, on top of festival slots on home soil and abroad at Glastonbury, Field Maneuvers, Gottwood, Test Pressing and their longstanding affiliate Dimensions Festival.
Set on adding more strings to their bow, recently Nadia and Rosie have been focusing their attention on production. Inspired by progressive trance and raw acid, their first two tracks have come out on compilations for London via Brighton event and label Accidental Meetings and Leeds party series Limit UK, and there’s plenty more in the works, with plans to release a debut EP in the not-so-distant future…
