Born and raised in Izmir, Turkey, Foresta is a member of Berlin’s No Shade Collective. She’s known for her eclectic DJ sets which include bass-heavy selections and fierce rhythms. Leaning on UK dance music as her main inspiration, Foresta blends these sounds with a new generation of club tracks and global bass gems.
Foresta has made mixes for Cashmere Radio’s Pass The Aux (with fellow No Shade affiliate Kikelomo), Orphan Radio, and RBMA’s On The Floor. She was profiled on i-D magazine as part of the collective, highlighting London and Bristol as her favourite local styles in bass music.
No Shade is a collective throwing parties and conducting DJ workshops for female and non-binary artists, offering a month-long programme before performing. Outside of DJing, Foresta is also a junior label manager for Beatport.
