London, United Kingdom
Karis aka DJ Karistocat, is a London based DJ who started her career in 2011. Through her regular sets on London’s circuit and festivals she has managed to turn heads in underground circles. Sitting between London, Berlin, Detroit and Paris in sound, her DJ sets are an assured, kinetic combination of rare disco, pulsing acid house, French house, UK Garage, techno, trip hop and house.
Karis has a distinct style of blending obscure disco and house classics alongside new, unknown releases in her sets, all set amongst an electronic, Jungle and French house tone. Bringing an alternative flair to her DJ sets, informed by her beginnings as an alternative DJ, she tries to bridge the gap between two musical worlds and shows there doesn’t need to be a divide.
From spinning at Ministry Of Sound alongside Groove Armada, Reading & Leeds Festival and Bestival to being a guest on radio shows such as Soho Radio and MusicBox. Karis is a dance music DJ with an alternative sensibility and punk outlook.
