As a music enthusiast and dedicated partygoer, Nigar Zeynep aka Zozo has been in the centre of the Istanbul dance music scene since the late 90s. Having been exposed to music and club culture for a long time, DJ’ing grew on her naturally, collecting and playing music since 2007. Her musical tastes range from a blend of funk and disco to soul classics and some oriental influences from her roots, which she slowly combined with sequencer driven house, slo-mo techno and spacey electronic beats. The Macadam Mambo affiliate describes her genre as ‘oriental crime’ and believes in a funny approach to electronic music. In 2010-2011, Zozo did the musical direction of the Hush gallery in Istanbul. While working there, she had the chance to play regularly and master her skills in the booth.

In the meantime, Zozo keeps on spreading a message of love through music to anyone listening carefully, while playing in both national venues like WUC, Mini Müzikhol, Suma Beach or Gizli Bahçe, as well as international ones like Panorama Bar, Rex Club, De School, Le Sucre, Bar, Zukunft or Salon des Amateurs to name a few.
