Biography

Having her roots in the ancient city of Istanbul, as a true nomad and free soul
Elif’s wings brought her reputation already exceeding the thriving dance
culture of her home city and made her a regular selector at top venues
both locally and internationally, as she delivers her unique blend
of synthesized and organic sounds.

She reveals a musical taste that is unafraid to go in the dark territories as
much as upbeat anthems as she’s unafraid to experiment with modern sounds,
while displaying an appreciation for conventional instrumentation. Her style
is characterized by raw percussion that creates relentless groove, combined
with melody carried by both electronic and acoustic instruments to achieve
an atmosphere which highlights her roots in the ancient city of Istanbul
in a contemporary fashion.

Energy levels range from relaxed to raging, the way in which Elif moves
between the two demonstrating her understanding of the necessity
of diversity throughout a set, as well as her technical skill
in creating mixes that progress in an exceptionally smooth
and gradual way.

As a strong female figure in the conservative society she grew up in, she
even has a TEDx talk under her belt amongst other online content for
inspiring her generation. But this is just the beginning. She’s keen
to inspire and touch more and for that she’s spending more time
in her ’nomad studio’ and carefully connecting to her inner self
to reveal emotions to express with music. We can anticipate
more stories told in depth as she’s already in progress of
cooking her own tunes to share with the world very soon.
