Toronto DJ and producer Ciel brings a versatile ear to the Jams dance series. Info


One of the hardest-working and most versatile selectors in the underground dance circuit, Toronto, Ontario-based producer and DJ Ciel (n´ee Cindy Li) pulls shards from deep house, hypnotic techno cuts, and tasteful electro and channels them into an ornate patchwork that makes it difficult to leave the dance floor. While Li has been a dedicated of champion of the Toronto underground for years, curating and coordinating dozens of parties and DJing constantly, she dropped an impressive debut 12-inch in 2017's Electrical Encounters, a gorgeous collection that ranged from the stoney electro of its title track to the hazy breakbeat elegance of "Elevate (Go Off)." Li's hard work caught the attention of the Discwoman collective and she has since signed with them and started touring all over the world. Jams series curator Nathan Port (who DJs here as NLP) and Jiggy Jamz Records owner Geoff K will open the floor. —Joel Shanahan
