As a DJ, music curator, collector and radio host, Istanbul’s Zozo has a unique approach to create and alter musical moods for various occasions with a distinctive yet hard to pin down sound.
She gets her kicks from seeing long-forgotten and criminally under-appreciated music experience a new lease of life. Peppering mixes with a vast range of influences varying from pulsing techno to lysergic oddities and traditional sounds of her native Turkey, a Zozo gig almost always materializes as a symbiosis of forward-facing electronics, contemporary dance music and carefully picked gems from the past she grew up on.
Following the motto ‘life is hard but music is good’ from an early age, she has a seasoned character and deep understanding of the dynamics of the dancefloor, with which she communicates with empathy. That has kept her busy on the weekends and she managed to bring her versatile taste to iconic dance floors as Panorama Bar, Contact Tokyo, De School, Ankali Prague, Robert Johnson or Salon des Amateurs. She is also a regular in high-rated festivals as Berlin Atonal, Primavera Sound, Waking Life, Lente Kabinet, Flow Festival, Strange Sounds From Beyond, Dekmantel and its Selectors offshoot to name a few.
Part of the Lyon based label & dj crew Macadam Mambo and resident of Berlin institution Sameheads, Zozo nowadays operates as a resident DJ and musical advisor for Tavern Istanbul and crowning her interest in music and art with her recently established multidisciplinary platform; AFOM (A friend of mine), that brings together likeminded friends, in different fields such as music, art, design and publishing.
