Between the binaries of darker moods and bliss energies – Sarkawt Hamad’s sound is unmistakable. Grown up in the Netherlands, the Erbil born- Amsterdam based artist finds inspiration in all sorts of elements: from fascination for rock music, to dreamy pop and her roots. Firmly entrenched in the Dutch underground scene, she translates this experience into a melodic flow behind the decks. Diverse in sources, her sets ebb effortlessly between genre – from breaks, to leftliefd techno and house, all connected through a contagious energy. Sarkawt creates a space in which euphoria, more pensive states and deep soft noise can coexist.
