London, England, GBR

Captivated by the dark, Villette tries to capture the sounds and essence of the night in her minimal, glitchy, melodic techno.


Villette is the solo project of Sine Buyuka, a London-based techno and house DJ/producer from Istanbul.

Formerly a part of the indie dance duo Dancing Birds Feel The Beat, she started to perform in 2010 and supported the likes of Metronomy, Paul Banks, Bombay Bicycle Club, Wild Nothing and Wild Beasts in her hometown Istanbul. She also carried on with her music journalism career in Billboard Turkey and hosted a weekly radio show on Radio Eksen. She still freelances, runs Indie UK and writes for Lipstick Disco and The Ransom Note.

After moving to London in 2012 for her MA in creative industries at King's, she picked up production and started her solo project Villette. Drawn to dark, melodic techno, she put out mixes and remixes which were picked up by some influential music blogs like Do Androids Dance, Acid Stag, The Techno Kittens, The House of Coxhead and The Ransom Note. She played support slots for the XX and John Talabot, as well as appearing on the same bill with Bonobo, Basement Jaxx and Moderat at One Love Festival. She produced official remixes for Hauschka, Ambassadeurs, NZCA/Lines and reworked John Talabot, Charlotte OC, James Blake and Kolsch. 

Villette will release her debut EP 'Crossed Wires' on her label Injazero Records in October 2015.
