I do not have the same story as others do, like “I started to play music at age 5”, but even during those days they say that I would go crazy if they did not turn up the volume of the radio. Music would cut all my ties with the world even at an early age.
I started to broadcast at Metro FM and Joy FM which are the first national broadcasts in Turkey. Although I was inexperienced, they hired me upon our first interview as they found me talented. I reached to music-lovers through these programs on the radio with my programs named “Weekend Dance Party” and “Only Music”. Meeting with İzzet Çapa, who is a guru of all places, enabled me to reach popular dance clubs while I was busy with the radio job. I should say that I have made a great contribution in turning weddings and corporate parties into special events with high-quality music concepts.
Once my name became popular gradually, I started to work in other cities outside Istanbul as well. For instance, I never forget those three seasons I spent at Caliente Beach in Çeşme. It was an amazing feeling to see thousands of people enjoying themselves and sinking into music that I play on the beach under the trend of the brand new Beach Club concept.
I played at various clubs and special parties in New York, Zurich, Sofia, Düsseldorf, Stuttgart, Mexico City and Munich. In the meantime, I had the chance to share the stage with Fedde Le Grand and David Morales.
But my main objective was to enter into the real music world and market by taking a one step forward from just playing and putting some music. In this pursuit, I made a remix of the track “Zilli” by Özgün from the album of “We Broke Up (Ayrıldık)” and it was my first production that was seen in music markets. Later, I did the remix of Sertab Erener’s song “Koparılan Çiçekler” from the album of “Rengarenk” and I arranged Demet Akalın’s song “Çanta” from the album of “Zirve”; thus my name became famous in terms of production. I hit the Top 10 lists in 2010 for digital and labeled album sales thanks to these two works of mine.
I had a first and only project with David Şaboy ft. Demet Akalın and performed in Istanbul, Izmir, Bodrum, Eskişehir, Antalya, Afyon, Tekirdap and Cyprus. I had the same project in 2011 with David Şaboy ft. Ajda Pekkan. Together with Ajda Pekkan, we went on stage for this performance in Aachen, Germany; İnonü Stadium, Billionaire Club, Çırağan Palace, SuAda in Istanbul and in Izmir.
I am very glad to have become one of the DJs that has different audiences because of my sets of music and it is a pleasure for me that you are reading these lines to get to know me better now. For this reason, I continue to work, produce and develop myself in order to maintain the appreciation of my listeners.
