Sarkawt Hamad

Between the binaries of darker moods and bliss energies - Sarkawt Hamad's sound is unmistakable. Growing up in the Netherlands, the Erbil born, Amsterdam-based artist finds inspiration in all sorts of elements: from rock music to dreamy pop and the music of her roots. Firmly entrenched in the Dutch underground scene, she translates this experience into a melodic flow behind the decks. Diverse in sources, her sets ebb effortlessly between genres - from breaks, to leftfield techno and house, all connected through a contagious energy. Sarkawt creates a space in which euphoria, more pensive states and deep soft noise can coexist.
