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 events, It’s Not U It’s Me and Work in Progress, and has produced for the past three years a femme - prioritizing radio show, also named Work in Progress, which currently broadcasts monthly on Montreal's n10.as radio.
After making her Boiler Room debut in August 2017 in Toronto and releasing her debut EP, Electrical Encounters, on Shanti Celeste’s Peach Discs to critical acclaim, she's established herself as one of the most exciting artists around.
Touted by Mixmag, Resident Advisor, Crack, and Red Bull Music Academy as one to watch, the Discwoman affiliate has spent 2018 touring non-stop through Europe, Australia, USA and Canada performing at some of the world's best clubs and festivals including Berghain, De School, Lux Fragil (Lisbon), Nowadays (NYC), Concrete (Paris), Piknic Electronik (Montreal), Smart Bar (Chicago), Unsound Adelaide and many more.
In her time off, she still finds time to write music (her recent EP ‘Hundred Flowers’ for Coastal Haze has been well received, and her next record will land in spring via Ghostly), put out consistantly eclectic mixes for platforms like The Fader, Crack, Zeezout, and Rinse FM, all while continuing to bring her favourite artists to Toronto to perform for her beloved parties.
