Sista Stroke, Gene Hunt and Flavio on the decks this Wednesday 04.25.07!! =) Another hot party in store!
Blessed with natural musical talent and the uncanny ability to nurture her gift through a relentless pursuit of inspiration, Sista Stroke is an emerging force in modern underground music. Her musical roots grow deep and span across the boundaries of genre and geography. She is a child of the b-boy generation whose journey though life has included living in Houston, San Antonio, Panama, McLean (VA), and now Chicago. The rich cultural textures of these cities reverberate in her music.
Sista Stroke came up musically as a member of the legendary Rebel Crew, a musical family founded in Houston in the mid 80s by Joe B. and Rick Partida. As part of the Rebel Crew she played styles ranging from Hip Hop to Dance Hall, Jungle to Jazz, and Breaks to House always remaining anchored in soulful music. Her skills did not go unnoticed and she soon developed a following which called her to the road. In virtually no time Sista Stroke developed a hardcore fan base in cities around the United States and Mexico. She is known for beatin it hard, yet strokin the soul with an incredibly moving blend of deep, funky, and spiritual house music (however, she has more than just house in her arsenal). She has often been booked to open for acts such as Afrika Bambaattaa, The Executioners, Tortured Soul, King Britt, Derrick Carter, Joey Beltram, Donald Glaude, DJ Dan, Method Man, Boo Williams, Mark Farina, Kaskade, and Super Jane (Lady D, Colette, Dayhota, and DJ Heather).
However, she is now becoming a headliner herself through consistency in her DJing and a growing discography. As a producer, Sista Stroke has found a place musically where she can truly explore the depths of her creativity. In 2004 she became the preeminent in-house producer/remixer for Mother Tongue and Innuendo Records. Over the past year she has released records on Mother Tongue, Bachelor Records, and JustRockinMusic along with some of the most sought after white labels in the industry. She is now poised to make her mark on the industry with projects on Revolutionary Music as well as several other lucky labels. Her releases on Revolutionary Music range from House to Hip Hop to down tempo. We understand that with this twelve year veteran, there cant be any rules. You just have to let her play, put your hands in the air, and yell Stroke This!
