When SNO grew up in the township of Bophelong in the Vaal, South Africa, her uncle was the finest collector of Jazz, Soul, Funk, Afrobeat and Disco. He surrounded her with tune after tune for years. When he sold his collection, SNO felt a loss that still remains to date.
Once she managed to get a proper turntable at home in 2015, she started collecting the very records her uncle sold, and more, as she have never stopped learning about music. On the 17th July 2015, she was thrown in the lion’s den at Soup Kitchen, Manchester and played a 4 hour set. It was her very first time and she enjoyed expressing herself through her love of music, straddling genres and showing how unlimited and highly extensive her love for Music is.
SNO’s presence on the Manchester DJ scene has been sudden due in no small part to the diversity and depth of her record bag. Not one to be pinned to a genre, her love of hip hop and bass styles will frequently co-exist amongst the finest Afrobeat, Jazz, Soul, Funk, Disco, Bruk, Highlife, Garage, Latin and rare groove selections. SNO is now resident for Manchester label and collective Banana Hill, lead by fellow directory member Cervo.
