Bella Sarris is a Sydney native, who’s been playing in her hometown for four years and then she found herself at Enter.’s Sake Bar. How? It’s never a coincidence and always a coincidence.
She came to Ibiza for the first time when she was 18 and knew right away, that she wanted to make people dance like they do it there.
But first things first, she started as a part of Enter. PR team. And when you work with Richie Hawtin, you get into the family. Being a part of that family was a happy time for Bella, but at some point, Hawtin somehow found out that she was a DJ. Probably someone told him, or he found out by incident, but the result was that he put her to play at Sake bar alongside Hito. What it was for a young girl, we can only imagine. But the fact is, Richie Hawtin is never wrong when he gives somebody a chance.
Bella got a residency at Sake in 2013 and that was a lesson, which made her the artist she is now.
In an interview for Pulse Radio she said, that while DJ’ing in Australia, she was constantly doubting everything – from her style to her skills, because there were always frames of “appropriate” – be that the place, the people, or the party, she had to play something that suited the situation.
At Enter. she was told to play whatever she wanted. A friend said: “Play what you want to hear”. And that may sound easy, but when you spend years with “tonight we are having a house night, so don’t play that darkness of yours” and things like that, you find yourself in a situation, that you don’t know what you want to hear. And you really don’t know if the people you are playing for want to hear the same music.
But it’s been three years since her first Thursday at Enter. and we see her touring the world and rolling dancefloors with several thousand people into her grooves. That’s just the beginning for her, though her career took off from a very hight point – a residency that thousands of DJs dream of.
As we already said, Richie Hartin is never wrong and Bella Sarris is flying high. May she fly there as long as possible, because we believe in her.
And you, catch her if you can.
