How Dıd You Get Into Djıng?

I had to quit football as a result of my injury. My life has been an irreplaceable void, as I have devoted a large part of my time to football. I loved music, but when I met in 2008, I fell in love with the fact that I can work miracles in the world of music without borders. In those years, I learned Setup by myself at home with my own efforts, I was not enough for the stage, but I had to take the stage to make a living. I was like a toddler, I was dropping the tempo, my transitions were bad, I was depressed, I couldn’t lift my head, and what I saw when I looked up was other DJs laughing at me. This was not nice 🙂 My colleagues who laughed at me that day had sown the storm of “we will work with Çağrı” years later. I disassembled my headset saying I will succeed no matter what and my adventure started.

Is There A Dj That You Inspıres You And See As An Idol?

Every successful colleague is my idol, my inspiration. We all do the same job and one of us is doing admirable work in his own way every day, but Deadmau5, whose creativity I admire when starting this work, has a special place.

Let them push their limits, do not forget that there is always better. Playing great songs or a great mix won’t be enough, the scene demands energy. It will not always have the best days, but when the headphones are connected, the best shows have to start.
