A handful of Europe’s elite DJs will be pumping out the latest sounds of 2013 at the Ministry of Sound next month.
World renowned house label Defected Records is bringing headliners Nick Curly and Tensnake to the club’s forefront while local performer Syron will be making her debut appearance doing live vocals for Tensnake.
Syron -whose real name Daisy Tullulah Syron-Russell is a bit of a mouthful- went to the Brit School for six months where she met her manager and started making and releasing music. Studying musical theatre the 20 year old says it stood her in good stead for her current line of work. “Whenever I do live gigs I like to give a proper performance, interact with the audiences, dance on stage and a theatre background definitely helps with that,” she says.
The Lewisham local had a jam-packed summer season with shows in Ibiza, Amsterdam, Rotterdam, and London, and will be travelling to Sweden this year. Between the touring schedule she spends her time in the studio working on a solo album due to be released later this year.
Voted one of 2012’s coolest new female talents by ID magazine, Syron insists the time is now for female artists. “There’s a lot of female singers doing really well and doing their own thing and it’s always important when females are recognised in the industry”. She predicts 2013 will see music going backwards, literally. “I think the garage-y sounds will still be there and coming even more with a real ‘90s feel to music”. LB
Syron will be part of the line up for Defected in the House at the Ministry of Sound, 103 Gaunt Street, SE1 6DP on Saturday February 9 from 10pm until 7am. Admission: £20. Phone: 0870 060 0010. http://www.ministryofsound.com/
