Last but certainly not least in our 5th birthday series is VILLETTE, aka Siné Buyuka. The DJ and producer created this treat of a kittencast for us, her gorgeous recent release ‘Crossed Wires’ featured a remix from Christian Löffler and the past 12 months have seen her career go from strength to strength. We are so excited to have Villette join us this Friday. Here’s more…
Hi, tell us a bit about your DJing style and sound – what can we expect from you at our 5th birthday party?
I usually play dark, melodic techno and tech house. Nothing too hard and tracks that have an emotive side to them…
We’re celebrating 5 years of blogging and amazing music. What has been your musical journey over the past 5 years?
Congratulations! I have been DJ’ing for a while but started doing my own productions a year ago and released my first EP. It was a dream come true to get Christian Löffler’s support. I launched my own electronic music label and moved to London. I also warmed up for John Talabot, Christian Löffler, Jan Blomqvist, Digitalism and the XX, which were all amazing experiences.
Are you a regular on the London underground scene? If yes, what do you enjoy/not enjoy about it?
Yes of course! I don’t enjoy the fact that I am almost always the oldest person in the room! I feel like Berlin is much more grown up in that sense. It is great that so many amazing DJ’s and producers are always about town at your doorstep. Coming from Istanbul where it is pretty much a club or two, I really appreciate all the talent on offer.
What does the rest of 2016 hold in store for you?
I am wrapping up my second EP, which I hope to release at the end of this year. It steered more towards melodic, poppy techno and I am excited. I am also waiting to get some really cool supports confirmed, fingers crossed!
Now stroke our ego a little please – what do you love about The Techno Kittens?
You have no idea how much of my techno fix I get from the Techno Kittens! I discovered so much music through you guys and the blog is a sight to look at with that amazing design. You have great taste!
Gee we’re blushing. Thank you. Now you’ve met all four of the awesome acts playing at our 5th birthday party. Come and hear them for yourself and dance the night away with us. Event info here. See you on the dancefloor xxx
