This week we have a special treat in store for you. We recently met up with Parisian-based Sophia Hamadi, 1/2 of Opale, who has nicely put together a wonderful 70-minute mix for you.



We first came across Hamadi listening to Opale, whose signature melancholic analog keyboards and soft haunting voices whisk listeners somewhere in between a dream and reality.

In Hamadi’s dj mixes, one can still find traces of these elements, but they are translated into a steady flow of emotionally charged melodies and beats which make one want to dance all night – and then some.

It’s said that Hamadi plays cold, melodic, and dreamy music for nostalgics and sunset lovers.

About the mix Hamadi says, “I have chosen songs that I love listening to at the moment, especially when I relax at night.”

Make sure to check out the interview we carried out with Hamadi to find out more about her life and living in Paris.
