Resident Advisor Podcast : RA.832 Ciel

RA.832 Ciel : Toronto’s Cindy Li, AKA Ciel, has a knack for balancing warmth and pressure. Her productions and mixes often feel coated in an iridescent gloss, evoking the trippy stylings of ’90s UK tech house and the swung drums of classic New York house. In between that, though, there’s lots of vigor via sleek electro, rippling trance, barrelling techno and big, bad breakbeats. Her style may lean towards the atmospheric but it’s loaded with moxie, giving her the versatility to close out a main room or kick off the afters.

Her fluid movements between bouncy basslines, spiraling synth patterns and weightless house grooves are just one facet of her impressive rise as a DJ and producer. When she’s not behind the decks, presenting radio shows or working on the excellent Parallel Minds label she runs alongside other Toronto acts Yohei S and Daniel 58, Li throws herself into community work. Committed to diverse dance floors, affordable housing and overall equality in the music industry, she’s a hard worker in the realest sense of the phrase.

Li’s RA mix is a treat. Rolling through scintillating drum work, wonky rhythms and dreamy pads, it feels like quintessential Ciel. In her interview below, she described how she enjoys “the challenge of trying to combine and make cohesive all the diverse styles of music I loved in a DJ set.” Judging by this mix alone, it’s safe to say that Li succeeded.
