Playlist of the Week: Elif

Elif Beatport Playlist of the Week
Mar 13, 2024
Elif (Artist)
The miraculous Barcelona-based DJ/producer and Marginalia label owner Elif shares some of her sweetest dance floor selects for Beatport’s Playlist of the Week.
Hi there! I’m Elif, a DJ/producer from Istanbul, currently living in Barcelona. I am the founder of the Marginalia label. With my imprint, I aim to create a new home for both emerging and established artists to express their unbridled creativity. I established Marginalia as a platform to support, nurture and develop the incredible output of the producers whose music forms the backbone of my DJ sets. In my DJ sets, I never stick to a certain genre, and I love adopting my sound to different scenarios, crowds, and vibes. I make lots of Beatport charts throughout the year to mark my favourites so I tried to include fresh tracks in this special one. Enjoy!
Moullinex, GPU Panic – Bring The Lights Down (Elif Remix) [Watergate Records]
I finished this remix last year then it was a long wait for the other remixer to be ready so I’m really happy to finally share my version of Bring The Lights Down with the world.
Tenvin – No Control (Aikon Remix) [Marginalia]
Tenvin has been one of the first artists to give me music for my label even before I founded it and I’m glad to finally release his first EP with Marginalia after his track on our first compilation. AIKON is a super-talented producer I admire, and I am so happy to have him as a remixer on the label. This track has been approved by many dance floors.
ĀEMYGDALA – Back On [Amaeo]
Back on is one of my favourite tracks from SKALA and Theologos’s label and ĀEMYGDALA are a solid producer duo to watch.
Nico Morano, MeWhy – Ocean Call (Animal Trainer Remix) [Ontourage Music]
I was lucky that I got to test this super bomb remix from Animal Trainer ahead of the release. It’s a great rework and works on every dance floor.
Tenvin – Reset (Original Mix) [Marginalia]
Probably the first track I have signed to Marginalia before it was even born. Happy it’s finally seeing day of light. It’s a serious late-night weapon.
Althoff – Electric Shivers [Marginalia]
Althoff has been part of the Marginalia family since its first release, with a collaboration track with me. Ahead of his solo EP on Marginalia, he showcased a different vibe with “Electric Shivers” on our compilation. It’s a great opening track that has the potential to start a beautiful storytelling.
Evade – Denae (Abuk Remix) [IAMHER]
Evade made his first appearance on Marginalia on our Bestiary Vol. 1 compilation and he will soon be back with his solo EP. I can never get enough of his music and this remix from another favourite Abuk has been part of my sets for some time.
Marc Romboy, C.A.R. – I Am a Dancer (Skatman Remix) [Systematic Recordings]
Solid high-energy interpretation by the talented Skatman.
TMPL – The Girl In The Room [Crosstown Rebels]
I love everything TMPL does. They are a very talented duo.
Chambord, Myd – Together We Stand (Chambord Remix) [Ed Banger Records]
A great closing track, guaranteed to have all hands up in the ear leaving the crowd wanting more and happy.
