Sydney native Bella Sarris got her start working PR for Richie Hawtin's ENTER. It wasn't long before she was tapped for a residency featuring regular stints at revered venues like Space in Ibiza. She has only further cemented her reputation as a must-watch DJ since, touring all across the globe to set dancefloors alight with a passion borne of her earliest days as a club rat. Ada Kaleh România, who has been releasing under a number of diverse aliases since 2006, makes his club debut. The Romanian native brings with him a penchant for organic, minimal sounds that mesmerize and enrapture the listener. Jubilee mo kicks things off with an opening set.

It all happened really early. Bella was just 15 years old when, she jumped her first fence into an electronic music festival in her hometown Sydney. She just wanted to experience the music. Little did she know that this fierce curiosity would soon lead her to island hop all the way to an even bigger playground, Ibiza, specifically, Space Terrace. This is where she first felt the desire to be on the other side of the decks. This dance floor alone inspired a feeling of wanting to create an experience for people, just like the one she had. Not long after, she began to teach herself a new kind of self expression through mixing. Her fascination for the dance floor and hunger for musical experience has taken her around the globe, and taught her very quickly how to play with the big kids. With a two year residency at ENTER under her belt, she continues her education, constantly inspired by fellow artists and the dance floors they command. Being a student of her surroundings, her music continues to evolve with age and influence as she absorbs her musical experiences and strives to transmit the same energy in her sets. In a time where genres blur and overlap, her style of mixing has no rules or restrictions just like her. You cannot put Bella or her sound in a box. Each must have the freedom to roam far and wide. The web of grooves that she weaves, like her musical education is ever progressing. When she's not dancing, or on a plane or in an airport, she resides in Berlin where she spends her days digging, sculpting her mixes and beginning productions. Her decision to be part of a new, smaller, boutique agency stems from her desire to 'keep things tight'. Working closely with her friends allows independence and freedom of choice, and thus more control over her musical direction. She would rather grow and develop with a slightly dysfunctional but accepting family than be adopted into an already established one. Bella forges ahead in an limitless environment. Observing what she hears and how the crowd responds to it, she applies the same intensity in her music that she felt when she jumped that first fence.
