Ciel, Rafiki & Cosmic Capsule

Ciel is a force to be reckoned with: in the past years, besides honing a unique flair as a DJ and music maker, she has single-handedly pushed her home Toronto scene into a more inclusive one through her radio show, parties and awareness-raising. Of course this didn't happen without bravely facing criticism from local gatekeepers - so common in dance music - as highlighted in the recent Resident Advisor feature about her rise to global underground prominence. She co-ran one of the first ever Discwoman parties having later joined this seminal collective, a move which only makes sense, because of how both politically sound and brilliant Ciel is.
A firm believer and preacher in conveying his musical expression to take fun seriously, Cosmic Capsule is about telling interesting tales via sounds to make people rise instead of fall.
