Sister Bliss

As a founding member of Faithless, Sister Bliss became one of Britain's most popular figures in the electronica scene. However, by the time that band was formed in 1995 she was already established as being among the first British female house DJs, bringing eight years of experience in that field to her work with DJ Rollo Armstrong and the Buddhist rapper Maxi Jazz. As a child she started learning the piano at the age of five, eventually broadening her palette by moving on to the violin, saxophone, and bass. Building on her 1987 debut DJ set, Sister Bliss went on to make prestigious appearances at clubs such as Cream, the Gallery, and Ministry of Sound. By the early '90s she was making her own demos, and by the time she met Armstrong she'd already made an impression on the techno scene with singles such as 1993's "Future Pulse" on the Italian label DTC. Armstrong and Sister Bliss soon began to write and record together, and their collaborations were eventually released under the Faithless name. While their first album, 1996's Reverence, was an underground sensation, its accompanying single "Insomnia" became one of the most durable club hits of the decade, reaching the Top Five in ten countries. Released in 1998, the Mercury-nominated Sunday 8pm capitalized on this success, as did their third album, 2001's Outrospective, which eventually went platinum.
