Born and raised in the cultural hub of Istanbul, Turkish DJ, producer and Marginalia label head Elif is rapidly earning her rightful place amongst dance music’s elite. Laying claim to an abundance of internationally celebrated releases on some of the industry’s leading labels, including her very own Marginalia imprint, the prolific Barcelona-based talent has managed to carve out her own unique sonic path since emerging onto the scene in 2019, and is rapidly making a name for herself as one of the most exciting, in-demand artists in electronic music today.
Now a seasoned regular at some of the most prestigious festivals and events the world over, her consummate calmness in the booth is a stark contrast to the frenzy she kicks up on the other side. With a trademark sound of flowing melodic floor fillers perfectly translating her raw emotion and intention, Elif pulls her audiences between hypnotic drum patterns, intricate arps, thumping kicks and driving bass lines; her selections both thought provoking and timeless. In the studio and behind the decks, Elif’s talents are clear for all to see and hear and her rapid rise to global acclaim is so rightly deserved. As much of a storyteller as she is an artist, this is only just the beginning for Elif.
