DJ and producer Elif (Anjunadeep, Stil Vor Talent) is like her music – compelling, creative, full of life and energy. Since she hit the ground running with her debut on Anjunadeep (2019) which made her an instant favourite, the warm-hearted spirited talent has been ever evolving and productive, both with her sets and releases. She’s dropped the stunning ‘Entanglement’ on Stil Vor Talent and ‘Moonspell’, her label debut on A Tribe Called Kotori which achieved chart success.
Elif has turned heads as a non-stop nomadic performer at the likes of Burning Man, The Monastery Festival, Anjunadeep Explorations, ADE, Kater Blau, The Gardens of Babylon and Flying Circus parties, Tulum, Montreal, Ukraine, Amsterdam… be it a dark club or a sunny beach, she brings heart, variety, passion and life-enhancing vibes to her listeners. Within the DJ circuit, she’s a name much admired, with top level talent including BLOND:ISH and Oliver Koletzki regularly championing her music.
‘Music is my home. Music is my language. Music is my medicine.’ This last year she discovered a passion for a new-found way of sharing her music and connecting with her fans, with live streams for ABRACADABRA, Desert Hearts, Anjunadeep, Femme House, doing weekly live shows on Twitch. Her ‘Moon Shuttle’ residency with ABRACADABRA TV is becoming a fast favourite, reaching over 10K viewers on Sunday afternoons.
‘I am a music storyteller. My nerd brain learns about music theory and production, when I can go days and nights without sleep and just work, because I can only enjoy success If I really earned it. This way I have a real and inspiring story to tell. I want to use my platform for our planet, for a better society, for freedom, for equality.’
