Ora Presents Niki Sadeki
Niki Sadeki is a self-taught, high-spirited creative, emboldened by the ideas, minds and sounds
scattered in her midst. At the core of it all, a desire to connect people – be it through rhythm, events,
or materializing projects. Whether DJ, radio host, event organizer, label collaborator, curator and

downtempo ranges. What carries her sets has less to do with genre and more to do with isolating a

seen her found Deep House Vancouver, join the Quetame label ranks, host the Allure show on Frisky
Radio, and produce sets for channels around the world, sprinkling the pages of United We Stream,
trndmsk, Deep House London and Balance Series. Niki also curates Souq Record’s glistening annual
compilation, Mirror for the Sun.
From her days expressing herself on the guitar, raiding her parents’ records, and exploring the worlds of
grunge, jazz or psychedelic rock, and traditional Persian music, she’s carried over the knack for
complementing dark and light frequencies, gliding in between without shying away from diving in.
Niki travels with a spring in her steps, leaving her mark at spaces like Fusion Festival, Kater Blau, Village
Underground London, Shelter Amsterdam, Woomoon Ibiza and Storytellers Tulum, The Cityfox
Experience, Do Not Sit on the Furniture, and regularly at Gorg-O-Mish in her native Vancouver, where
mountains, ocean and city converge. Her down to earth and steady love for sound has shaped a
willingness to always adapt to the situation at hand, making the best out of it on a musical and a human
