SNO aka Selina Nongaliphe Oliphant grew up in the township of Bophelong in the Vaal, South Africa. SNO's uncle was the finest collector of Jazz, Soul, Funk, Afrobeat and Disco. "He suffocated me with tune after tune for years. When he sold his collection, I felt loss that I still haven’t felt to date."
A well known head on the music scene for years, once SNO managed to get a proper turntable at home in 2015, she started collecting the very records her uncle sold, and more, as she has never stopped learning about music.
SNO's presence on the Manchester DJ scene has been sudden and explosive. This is due in no small part to the diversity and depth of her record bag. Not one to be pinned to a genre, her love of hip hop and bass styles frequently co-exist amongst the finest Afrobeat, Jazz and rare groove selections.
