A world refined sound

Beach bars may be moving into the summer and stepping up the action but the capital’s nightlife scene is fighting back with a performance by Polish DJ Margaret Dygas on Saturday.

With a sound born in New York, refined in London and perfected in Berlin, Dygas’ sound possesses a true international resonance.

Dygas moved with her family to California when she was a teenager, where she discovered house music and the underground club scene. Captivated by the British dance scene, she moved to London in the summer of 1999 and began DJing at parties in the city and eventually moved on to play warm up sets in clubs, soon becoming a regular fixture on London’s electronic music scene.

Following her move to Berlin in 2007, the DJ started producing and writing her own music, and has since released EPs and full-length albums on Contexterrior, PowerShovelAudio, Perlon and Non Standard Productions.

With her broad musical background fuelling her desire for electronic experimentation within her music, her productions and DJ-sets incorporate the deep and dub-influenced sound she loves, while retaining the driving funk of her musical past.

Margaret Dygas
Live performance by the DJ. May 28. Klubd, 36 Ammochostou Street, Nicosia. 23.55pm. €15 including a drink. Tel: 22-104841
