Sedef Adasi: The ‘Shine A Light On’ Mix
Sedef Adasí is all about the juiciest and tastiest slices of electronic music; the kind that give your hips a mind of their own.
It’s no lie, through both her DJ sets and her own productions which have featured on Permanent Vacation and Freeride Millenium compilations, she delivers her own blend of the best bits of techno, acid, electro and old school house jams.
At City Club, in her home of Augsburg, she runs her monthly night HAMAM Nights which has helped to broaden the Bavarian city’s electronic music landscape by bringing artists from across the world, including the likes of DJ Stingray, Tama Sumo and Perel.
To give you a taste of what Sedef is all about, we invited her to take control of this week’s Shine A Light On mix, which bounces from raw house cuts to crunchy electro and rumbling acid rhythms…
Please introduce yourself… Who are you, where are you and what are you
Hello there, this is Sedef Adasí, head of HAMAM Nights. 28 — living in a town called Augsburg (Bavaria). Loves music, astrology & ice cream.
What does your music sound like?
That’s a really good question. I would say it’s something in between house, acid, electro and techno. Sometimes I add some R’n’B or pop classics (because I’m a 90s gal) so it depends on the mood, it’s always a journey for me.
Where was the mix recorded?
In my cosy studio in Augsburg.
What would be the ideal setting to listen to the mix?
A Beachside would be perfect I think.
What should we be wearing?
I would prefer something sexy. But cosy is also okay, we have to feel comfortable.
What would be your dream setting to record a mix?
I love nature so it could be somewhere in the forest or by the sea. Having some friends around and dancing in the wild, perfect.
Which track in the mix is your current favourite?
I think its the opening track by Ex-Terrestrial – 2DS. So deep so many emotions, I really like that one.
What’s your favourite recorded mix of all time?
Oh there are so many… But one of my absolute favs is the “Strictly oldschool” set by Jonny Rock! Sexy house jams, yum.
If you could go back to back with any DJ from throughout history, who would it be and why?
I think it would be DJ Stingray – his skills are just way too crazy. Legend!
What was your first DJ set up at home and what is it now?
If we really go back than I started with a Sony Soundsystem – lots of vinyl, CDs and cassettes. Now I use turntables and CDJs.
What’s more important, the track you start on or the track you end on?
Both topics are important to me, each track transports a different vibe.
What were the first and last records you bought?
First: Jimmy Edgar, X-District – Color Correction, Black Ice Featuring Nature Love – My Love Is Underground and Desireless – Voyage Voyage
Last: Larry Heard – Sceneries Not Songs, Volume 1, Denham Audio – Feel the Panic (Lobster Theremin) and DJ Deep – Vaincre (childhood)
If this mix was an edible thing, what would it taste like?
Well it would taste like plum ice cream.
If it was an animal what would it be?
A leo, playful and energetic.
One record in your collection that is impossible to mix into anything?
Crystal Castles – Air War
