Turning Sand into Pearls: Meet DJ & Singer BLK PRL at the House of Love.

Posted by Mandy Randhawa on May 31, 2024

If you have rich talents, a powerful voice, a love of music, and an unwavering ability to draw everyone to the centre of a dancefloor, it only makes sense that you can also turn sand into pearls. And so it is that the DJ, singer, and producer previously known as Sandy Duperval has grown into the one-of-a-kind, multi-talented treasure: BLK PRL.

BLK PRL has a deep and varied musical history, growing up listening to a lot of gospel, as well as R&B and hip hop. She had an early abiding love of singing and producing. It was while studying jazz vocals in college, that she needed a job and started to DJ. That’s where she learned to mix and scratch and to read a crowd. And her learning and exploration has never slowed down.

BLK PRL has recorded songs with Cissy Houston (Whitney Houston’s mother), participated on Star Académie, Quebec’s most watched reality TV show (think American Idol), and had an 11-year residency at Unity Nightclub, one of Montreal’s highly respected 2SLGBTQ+ clubs. Her unique sound—fusing incredible vocals with feel-good tracks—has packed dancefloors in Europe, Asia, the U.S, North Africa, and the Middle East.

BLK PRL’s sound is wholly unique, weaving her incredible voice into her mixes. Wherever she plays, the dancefloors sizzle, which makes sense, because somewhere amidst the hard work and rising star of her musicianship, she also earned a Bachelor of Commerce in culinary management! Seriously, what can’t she do?

Come out and experience the BLK PRL love at Chicas, the Flygirl Pride garden party: Sunday August 4, 2024 4pm-9pm. Sheraton Wall Centre 1000 Burrard Street. Tickets here.
