Ece Özel

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. Ece Özel is a DJ from İstanbul who runs her own nights and podcast series as "Özel Zevkler" where she has supported many local live acts and djs. She is one of the residents of “arkaoda” and she is one half of Müstesna Records.

Growing up in Istanbul’s punk scene and then meeting the electronic music scene surely had some effects on her style. Her intention to create dark but shiny journey through transitions is what keeps her sound fresh and unpredictable. Those transitions of electro, disco, leftfield electronics, new wave, even some forms of techno leads to very intense moments on the dancefloor and her mixes.

Ece has been playing in her hometown for almost a decade now and has been noticed by international platforms like Dekmantel, Boiler Room and festivals and clubs like Renate, Golden Pudel, Salon Des Amateurs, Sameheads, Kaiku, Garage Noord, Rive Rouge, FOLD, Atlas Electronic, Strange Sounds From Beyond, Camp Cosmic, and many more...
