Zeynep Erbay is a music producer and DJ based in Istanbul.
She released music on Compost, FoolsGold and Soul Clap Records and is now signed to Exploited.
Zeynep’s affinity with music began with piano lessons in her early childhood, which then continued in the form of a classical piano training in the conservatory.
Studying music theory from a young age, she grew a deep understanding of rhythm and sound. It was later, however, during her university that she was introduced to the beats of the dance floor, when she began curating radio shows for influential local stations in Istanbul. Through radio, Zeynep not only sharpened her music research techniques, but also explored new genres that gradually shaped her musical development.
She was selected to the RedBull Music Academy where she met and shared the decks with the likes of The Aloe Black, Greg Wilson, Mizel Brothers, Joe Batan, Skream, BenjiB, Stave Spacek, Nina Kraviz to name a few.
Her track titled ‘Flowers’ was featured in the album Future Sound of Jazz 11 by Compost Records, along with names such as Dennis Ferrer, Solomun & Stimming, and Koop.
Her interest in creating musical stories are mostly inspired from personal experiences and birthed her latest synthed out house & disco EP ‘Escape From the Toxic Train’ released from Soul Clap Records. Zeynep’s latest remix for SoulClap was featured in their album titled WTF: Transformed & Remixed, which included names such as Seth Troxler, A-Track, Tod Edwards and Terry Hunter among others.
Not one to be limited to a specific genre, her music feels like electric, the kind that makes you not want to leave the dance floor. She continues to reach new ears while furthering her ever-evolving exploration of dance music.
