CHARLO is a Drum & Bass DJ based in London, inspired by both the minimal and more soulful sides of the genre. CHARLO brings a variety of quality tunes to the decks. Digging deep with darker selections and elevating with liquid blends, her mixing offers a captivating and distinctive sound.
CHARLO has had an affinity with music from an early age. She first picked up a pair of drumsticks when she was 10 years old, and heard her first Drum & Bass track shortly afterwards. The energy and vibe captivated her and she hasn’t looked back since. She has embarked on a musical journey that has now led her to the roster of BPM.
CHARLO has only been DJing for a short time, acquiring her first pair of CDJs in 2018. Since then, however, her mixing has captured the attention of some of the scene’s heavy hitters and has seen her booked at multiple venues across the UK. These include; Volks (Brighton), Basement 45 (Bristol) and The Cause (London). She has also played several online events including Goat Shed Stay At Home Festival, Heavy Sonics: Love Music Hate Racism, Cryptik Events, and InnerSoul House Party.
CHARLO’s sound is predominantly focused on the deeper vibes of Drum & Bass. 1985 Music, Overview, Flexout Audio, and Lost Recordings featuring heavily in her sets. But, there are also nods to more melodic styles. It wouldn’t be uncommon to hear her drop tracks from the likes of the North Quarter and Shogun Audio within her mixes. She has recently joined the Incurzion Audio Collective with a number of like-minded artists championing other up and coming DJs and producers.
CHARLO is a rising force in the scene and you’ll be seeing a lot more of her in 2021 and beyond.
