İpek İpekçİoğlu

 »When Ipek plays people listen, they dance, they scream, they want more. That goes for Berlin, that goes for Stockholm and that goes for New York. At the moment she’s waiting for gigs in Hong Kong and Tokyo, then all the dance floors of this world will be hers.«

Inspired by her passion for ethnic music and genre-hopping dance beats, Ipek spins tunes from Turkey, Middle East, Anatolia (Mesopotamia) and Balkans.

At her »electronic only« sets, Ipek takes you into deep-house, tech-house, minimal and techno spiced up with ethnic - folk tunes, fuelled by kicking beats and dramatic basslines.and she creates live-remixes.
