Having made a name for themselves tearing up parties around the UK (and beyond) RAW SILK are on a rampage, regularly setting the turntables on fire with their silky selections. We sit down with one half of the dynamic duo for a catch up about their favourite food spots and more.
So, tell us a little about yourself:
My names Steph and I’m one of half of Raw Silk. We are a London based DJ duo, residents for Percolate and have a monthly show on Netil radio.
What’s your cuisine of choice?
It’s hard to choose just one. I think my cuisine of choice in London is probably middle eastern, there’s so many great Turkish and Lebanese places. I also love Asian food. I have spent a lot of time in Thailand and Bali where I got use to eating fried rice for breakfast.
Anything you don’t mess with?
Meat. Grace and I are actually both vegetarians. Other than that I’ll eat pretty much anything.
Who’s the best cook in RAW SILK?
I couldn’t possibly say 😉
What’s your favourite neighbourhood food spot?
Hmmm I live in between Peckham and Camberwell where there’s a few good spots. I think its probably a toss up between Taco Queen, Yadas or Silk Road… Taco Queen probably wins because of the margaritas.
Are you a force to be reckoned with in the Kitchen?
‘A force to be reckoned with’ is probably too strong. I do enjoy cooking though and quite like being the one in control.
What’s usually on the stereo whilst you’re cooking up a storm?
Day Dreaming by Aretha Franklin is my number one song to cook to. This kind of uplifting soul music is probably my go-to vibe in the kitchen, but this of course can change drastically dependant on my mood and the occasion. Cooking can also be a nice opportunity to listen to new music and explore album tracks. Recently I’ve been listening to Children of Zeus, Nu Guinea, Kokoroko and Mildlife in the kitchen.
