Idiosyncratic, mutant and rigorous transitions. From İstanbul.
When you come from a place where everything collides in the worst and the best way, confusion comes with a price - it's either a bigger confusion or a huge relief. İstanbul based DJ Ece Özel’s approach towards selection, pullulates from this exact notion.
Growing up in the city’s vibrant punk scene and being acquainted with electronic music afterwards, surely had some effects on her style. Expect to be carried away with transitions between styles, tempo, rhythm and mood when she’s behind the decks. Whether it’s a mixtape or a dancefoor, Ece Özel’s mystifying, unpredictable and always fresh sounds blossom into distinctive, dark but somehow shiny journeys. She runs her own nights and podcast series titled “Özel Zevkler”. So far many local and global live acts and DJs took part in the series’ parties in various clubs and/or online platforms. Being one half of İstanbul based independent label Müstesna Records, she continues to shine a light on both contemporary and past Turkish electronic music scene. Ece Özel has been playing in her hometown for more than a decade and is a resident DJ of one of the city’s most signifcant clubs, arkaoda.
She has ben noticed by international platforms like Dekmantel, Boiler Room and played in festivals or clubs like Renate, Golden Pudel, Salon Des Amateurs, Sameheads, Kaiku, Garage Noord, Rive Rouge, FOLD, Atlas Electronic, Strange Sounds From Beyond, Camp Cosmic, Mutabor, 20/44, K-30 and many more.
