Spotlight: Zophy

Who is Zophy and when did she see the daylight?

Zophy is an electro/house/complextro DJ based out of Malmö, Sweden. I started to DJ together with a friend, on some really old and crappy equipment in my living room back in 2010. Back then we were DJing in a duo together, but in early 2013 I decided to go solo and that’s when Zophy was born.

Can you try to explain a typical Zophy-set?

A typical Zophy-set includes a lot of energy, base and all those electro sounds that I love. The most important thing for me during a set is to connect with the audience. I think the hardest part about being a DJ is to constantly read the audience to see what they like and what they react to. It’s all about that. Also, I always try to throw in some surprises, something that the audience doesn’t expect, that I know they’ll love.

What’s the ambition with Zophy and what happens in the future?

My ambition right now is to keep on doing my thing and to have fun with it. I want to keep playing the music I love and to make people dance. I hope that the future will bring some really interesting stuff. I have some projects for this autumn/winter, but nothing is final so I have to keep it a secret for now.

Zophy will be DJing at the Emues Showcase in Malmö, Sweden on Saturday, July 26, 2014. Be there!

Welcome Amel!

We are honoured to welcome Amel to the Emues Crew. As an Emues Activist, Amel will be involved in several exciting projects and collaborations. He will also be blogging right here on the Emues Blog! 

My name is Amel Suljevic and I am the latest addition to the Emues Crew, as an Emues Activist. I recently moved to Malmö, Sweden, where I now study Media and Communication at Malmö University.

I got in touch with Markus, the founder of Emues, almost immediately when I came to Malmö. Before we hooked up I had heard a lot of things about this new-thinking platform for booking concerts. I loved the idea from the very start because I have worked with booking concerts in my hometown Katrineholm and I am aware of all the problems and difficulties with that process.

Besides of my attempts of being a ”cultural concert-booking superhero” in a pretty boring home town, I consider myself to be a regular guy who loves great music and especially good live-music. I love going to different concerts, festivals and clubs to explore and experience new music.

I am really stoked to be working with Emues, to have the chance to contribute to the future live music industry and with a positive impact and change!

Not a big fan of playlists (can’t ever stick to them and keep on updating them) but I made one especially for this occasion with som ballin’ tracks!

It’s important to be open minded! – Heavy Metal

It’s fun to explore new things, especially new music! Here’s a top 100 playlist (well almost 100, it’s still in the making) that my brother made for my sister. She recently converted to heavy metal after a trip to Berlin. My brother made this for her as an introduction to the genre and it’s sub-genres. All this based on his knowledge and taste as a heavy metal connoisseur. He has the biggest record collection I’ve seen and it’s getting bigger almost everyday. I think it’s fantastic that I have someone to teach me stuff about things I have no idea about! Enjoy!
