CIEL, CIndy Li

Ciel is a DJ, producer, radio host, creator of Toronto's Work in Progress party series, & co-founder of collective It's Not U It's Me. She's a long-time resident at Bambi's & a member of Discwoman. She released her first EP on Peach Discs in 2017.

Ciel, born Cindy Li, is a producer, DJ, promoter, and radio programmer based out of Toronto, Canada. She currently runs two of the country’s most forward thinking party series (It’s Not U It’s Me and Work in Progress) and hosts a femme & queer - prioritizing radio show each month on n10.as.

Ciel has used every ounce of influence created by her career to advocate for the safety and presence of women, people of color, and the LGBTQ community. Her undying efforts have significantly raised the safety standards of underground parties in Canada and have played a key role in the music community enforcing a 0 tolerance policy against individuals who have abused others. 

After making her Boiler Room debut with a heady & kinetic set last August in Toronto, she's continued to make waves as one of the newest additions to Discwoman’s roster, touted by Mixmag, RA, Crack, and RBMA as one to watch, all of which followed her superb debut release on Shanti Celeste’s Peach Discs in 2017.
