Information on the artists:

Ma Faiza: While the rest of the world had already begun picking up on an underground electronic sound, India was slow on the uptake. A lone woman traveled to India to discover her roots and realize the Indian connection to her soul. Falling in love with her motherland, Ma Faiza allowed herself to embark on a journey that would change her life, not only as a performer but as an individual too. The calm, slow rising of a culture that was to change the way people partied in India, Ma Faiza was bringing about a revolution. Ma Faiza was soon performing all the way from sands of Goa to Ibiza. Not limited by genre, convention or margins of any kind, she has allowed cultures, people, and flavours to influence her and her own unique style.

Watching this legend perform is impossible to do standing still. Her fierce passion shines through when she takes to her stage, seducing her audience in a give and take relationship so subtle, you could almost miss it. Performing for the masses that come to experience her music is mutual concession. The energy and love that she sends out into the crowd during a show is returned back by her audiences who thrive on her music.

DJ Ipek: She is also known for her Berlin style Electro and minimal sets. Her sound “Eklektik Berlinistan” provides surprising breaks to the steady course of club music. Her emphasis clearly on kicking beats and dramatic baselines, DJ Ipek offers a DJ act out of the ordinary.

The Berlin-Istanbul-based turkish-german dj/producer/compiler Ipek influenced with her eclectic music and characteristic mixes the multilayered Berlin club scene during the 90s. Widespread magazine "Zitty" acknowledged exactly this when they ranked DJ Ipek as one of Berlin’s most important cultural contributors.

Undisputedly, DJ Ipek has earned herself a reputation in the heterogeneous landscape of international nightlife. A show is returned back by her audiences who thrive on her music.
