Yildiz Cokcoskun aka Dj Negma was born and raised in Istanbul, Turkey. From a young age she followed music and in the 80s she became greatly interested in house music. She began listening to the beats and paid great attention to the detail and in time started practising to dj herself. From then she organised her own events at different clubs around Turkey. But this did not satisfy her love for house music and finally her inner drive to play in the clubs, pushed her enough to give it a try herself. She played in Istanbul, Bodrum and Marmaris for various house partys and dj organisations. She earned a great reputation at these partys and in 2001, Negma became a Professional dj, playing at Orange Club.
In 2004 Negma started to play in bigger events, attracting great attention from her great variety of house styles. DJane Negma grew to one of the top female DJs in the Turkey the last 5 years. Her sets contain every style of house and her music style is always happy and colourful just like herself. Positive energy is easily heard in her music. Not only was Negma succeeding in her dj career, but she also graduated from Istanbul University Computer Engineering. Also she will go to sound engineering school. She is a technical talent so she is learning new technologies quickly.
She was first know in the dj world as ‘Jelibon’ but after a visit to Egypt she changed it to Negma. The reason being it has the same meaning as her birth name, Yildiz, which when translated to english means Star.
