Broken Heart DJs

“Broken Hearts lead a new wave of female DJ groups who look and sound great” – Elle

Well-known for their distinctive brand of spectacular DJing, the Broken Hearts have played some of the most exclusive venues in the UK, as well as shows throughout Europe, Russia and the USA. Their eclectic sets have been described by The Independent as “a Hollywood musical on hallucinogenics”, and they have played for brands such as Selfridges, Topshop, PPQ, Vivienne Westwood and Roberto Cavalli. They write and present ‘Peppermint Candy’, a weekly swing-themed show on Jazz FM, celebrated by The Guardian as “a cool swing music show hosted by two vintage style icons that will shatter all your expectations of jazz radio.” A companion album was released through Universal Music and reached number 6 in the compilation charts. The Broken Hearts are as well known for their striking visual style as for the music they spin on dancefloors across the world. They have impeccable fashion credentials: designing womenswear ranges for cult brands Beyond the Valley and Paperself eyelashes, sitting on the judge’s panel of the Clothes Show Style Awards and constantly championing young designers by commissioning their costumes. They are regular fixtures DJing at Fashion Week parties due to their unique look – a mix of cutting-edge high fashion and theatrical vintage style. As such they have been featured throughout the style and fashion press, including British Vogue, i-D, and Grazia, including appearances at number 16 in the Observer ‘Cool List’ and at number 6 in Elle magazine’s ‘Hot 20′. They have also appeared as style and music commentators on shows such as T4′s ‘Frock Me’ and 4Music’s ‘Frockstars’.

“Turntable Goddesses Amber and Nisha are guaranteed to pull out a plethora of delights from both the DJ crate and the dressing-up box” – Time Out


Venge Dur

Venge Dur is a six piece who play traditional Kurdish music. Their name translates from Kurdish for ‘The Sound of the Far’. Venge Dur was formed in Feburary 2011 at the Kurdish Community Centre originally to play Kurdish music but later added Armenian songs as well. They are led vocally by the beautiful and talented Aysegul Erdogan. Their numbers also contain the saz (kurdish stringed instrument) played by both Hamit and Mehmet, guitar played by Emre, jembe played by Kibar and also a guest appearance by Sara playing the daf (kurdish percussion instrument). Hear the sound of the far. Don’t bother looking for them on the internet. Venge Dur are London’s best kept secret.
