Simone Øster aka Smokey is a Copenhagen-based DJ with a well-cultivated appetite for a proper party and an on-point aesthetic to match. Emerging from renowned techno squad Apeiron Crew, as a solo artist she’s more focused on off-kilter rhythms, breaks, electro, UKG and more. Having been heavily involved in the music and culture scene in Copenhagen for the past decade, Smokey has high standards when it comes to fun. She enters the room with an attitude of ‘get weird or go home’, and her sets reflect that; her humorous and upbeat attitude radiates from her, whether from behind the decks or on the dancefloor. But when she plays, don’t expect all sunshine and rainbows. Her selection goes heavy and will undoubtedly smack you in the face with something evil when you least expect it.
These days you will find Smokey doing radio at local station MMH alongside throwing the sub heavy ‘Liaisons’ party series.
