Following the wave, Carista was the star of the Nike x Patta campaign for the collaborative Air Max 1 that was released between brands together with Skepta, Mo Farah, Little Simz and directed by renowned directors Steve McQueen and Mahaneela. His interview with Dazed sheds light on the project and on how to build lasting creative careers. After being referred to by Mixmag as a rising star in 2018, Carista has proven to be an unstoppable force with her charismatic and contagious style built on the delightful chemistry and response she draws from the crowd. As demonstrated in Boiler Room's numerous performances with the AVA festival, Dekmantel and United Identities. These live performances have naturally been transferred to a mix for Boiler Room on Apple Music. After receiving the prestigious and independent Gieskes-Strijbis Podium Award in 2021, which recognized his 'strong commitment and great perseverance', who knows what the future holds for the head of United Identities. One thing is certain; he is preparing to do more shows in 2022, such as Primavera Sound, Tomorrowland, Lente Kabinet, Best Kept Secret Festival, and to perform more intimate underground shows. Carista has certainly left us with a strong desire for something else. With a rapidly growing fanbase, he shows no signs of slowing down and will continue to create and curate amazing music.
