İpek is an internationally successful, multiple award-winning DJ, producer, curator, and queer activist living in Berlin and Istanbul. Inspired by her bicultural socialisation, İpek developed a style that stands for her unique and hybrid sound mix, Eklektik BerlinIstan: Psychedelic Turkish funk meets disco, Kurdish Halay meets electro, Albanian pop merges with twerk, and Anatolian folk song comes across deep house. Euphoric encounters and boundary-crossing on the dance floor are guaranteed – with absolutely no passport controls or integration test. DJ İpek enjoys playing with musical clichés, simultaneously fascinating with unknown insiders. İpek İpekçioğlu has been a resident DJ at Gayhane – QueerOriental Dancefloor at the SO36 Club in Berlin for more than 20 years.
