Born in Tehran, Ardalan found himself gravitating towards an unlikely passion for music at an early age. Enamored first by traditional Iranian music and classic jazz and rock, Ardalan’s taste began to transform with his childhood years spent moving back and forth from Iran and California. With each intercontinental return, Ardalan grew his treasure trove of mixtapes filled with rare musical gems like gangsta rap, Italo disco, and movie and video game soundtracks–the best of the West. The Tehran native’s sound satisfies those with a diverse palate providing a good time whether it’s in the darkest of basements to the most opulent clubs and festivals.

Joining Ardalan will be Sofia Kourtesis. Embraced in communities from Tokyo to Lima, Peruvian and Greek producer, singer, pianst, songwriter, fashion designer, and DJ, Sofia Kourtesis has been a staple of the world stage starting with her trans-atlantic education between New York and Hamburg. Beginning with the organization of university parties, Kourtesis began booking sought after local acts that would eventually stem into a gig booking some of Hamburg's most renowned clubs including Prinzenbar, Docks and Große Freiheit 36. Her extensive involvement in the club scene would eventually pave the way for Kourtesis to get into the DJ booth herself.

After perfecting her craft behind the decks, Kourtesis cultivated her burgeoning talent for creating her own productions. Quickly gaining the attention of the world's top tastemakers, Kourtesis found herself in high demand to perform at festivals like Melt, Dockville, Play Me, and Berghain. The ravishing Kourtesis also found herself at the beck and call of major fashion houses Levis, Filippa K, and Adidas, who all requested her as the in-house DJ for various events.

You may have also spotted Kourtesis at one of her many performances around the globe along side the likes of Kele Okereke, Gold Panda, Busy P, The Gossip, Sebastian, Kavinski, Luke Abbott, and James Holden among others. Gold Panda even invited her to provide the vocals on his hit track 'An English House.' Catch Sofia Kourtesis in the Green Room on Friday, September 23rd, while a special guest joins us in the Club Level. This one is not to be missed.
