Growing up in Istanbul, Circassian & Abkhazian electronica producer Siné Buyuka aka Villette initially made a name for herself as a DJ, which placed her at the heart of her hometown music scene. But after a subsequent move to London and a creative re-imagining of herself, she started releasing her own blend of electronica.
Villette has done a number of official remixes for the likes of German composer Hauschka (130701, City Slang, Temporary Residence), acclaimed electronica producer Christian Löffler (Ki Records, 20/20 Vision), left-field electronica producer Ambassadeurs (Phases Records) and house producer Jan Blomqvist (Armada Music). She has also played support slots for Christian Löffler, John Talabot, Jan Blomqvist, Weval, Gidge, Digitalism and the XX, as well as taking part in festivals like Sonar Istanbul, Rock’n Coke and One Love.
Villette has a love affair with film score and modern classical composition combined with electronics, using piano and orchestral string arrangements in her productions.
She is currently running boutique electronic and experimental label Injazero Records and has done freelance journalism work for outlets like Dazed, the Ransom Note, the BBC and Time Out.
She is on a degree program in Music Production and Sound Engineering at Point Blank and has an MA in Cultural and Creative Industries from King’s College London.
