DJ set — January 18, 2017
Saya and Harlow show @ The Casbah

DJ Kristin Archer

First DJ set of 2017! I love putting playlists together and it suited my aesthetic to curate the tunes during Saya‘s first ever show. The indie pop/R&B/electro artist from Toronto delivered a fun first set, short and sweet, and put her on my radar as someone to keep an eye on.

Opening the show was local support Harlow, who really impressed me with her vocals. I love discovering new talent and this show did just that. I can’t say enough to just venture out and take a chance on a live show – you’re bound to stumble upon something great. Thanks to The Casbah for having me!
