How Dıd You Get Into Djıng?

I was very interested in music in my childhood. I first started to explore my abilities towards music when I was 16 years old. Thus, I stepped into DJing and started producing my own songs along with it.

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

I can’t say idols, but there are a few names that I like their music and career. Hot Since 82, Duke Dumont and Zhu.

Does The Dj Absolutely Have To Have Notation And Musıc Knowledge?

Yes, he must have musical knowledge and musical knowledge. For example; The songs you prefer during your performance should be in harmonious chords one after another. In addition to this, it must have this equipment in order to produce music. Otherwise, a professional job can never be.

Does The Dj Have A Retırement Age Or A Tıme To Quıt? Can You Be Left Djıng?

Speaking for myself; I don’t think anyone who is devoted to being a DJ can ever quit. If there is someone or someone who can quit, they never did it wholeheartedly.

Is There A Mıx, Song, Or Track You Wouldn’t Mınd If I Dıdn’t Play At A Party?

Yes actually there are a few songs that I think so.

Do They Have A Goal In Musıc And Djıng?

Goals never end for a successful person. Of course, I still have targets in my field and will continue to be. When the target is over, everything is over.

How Have You Been Affected By Covıd-19?

Frankly, it cannot be said that I was very impressed. Because I am not the one who accepts every stage performance, it didn’t impress me. I have two record companies that are already busy. I am interested in both them and my own music.

How Can You Explaın The Dj’s Sıtuatıon Durıng The Pandemıc?

It is really sad not to be together with our audience. In addition, those who make a living by just taking the stage are of course greatly affected financially and morally. But I don’t think musicians who exist in the digital environment are very influenced.

What Do You Thınk About The Quaıty Djs In The Market And Your Phenomenon Djs?

Of course, I never equate them with what we do. This would be an insult to us. They’re just a void for me, even making any comment can make them think we consider them.

Can You Be A Dj Wıth Innate Talent? Or Could It Be A Natural Dj Talent?

This is a skill, right. However, DJing is a job that can also be learned through education. There are many examples today.

What Are Your Recommendatıons For New Djs?

First of all, they must have a style and line that they adopt. If they can succeed in the direction they draw, they will definitely become a quality musician. People without a vision can never be quality musicians. This is not something that can be acquired, of course, it must be in them. Nothing is as difficult as they see or hear, they should never forget it.

Is It Intentıonal For Djs To Use Female Vocals? Or Is It Just A Coıncıdence?

This is a relative situation. Especially there are musicians who use it. It is not a special case for me.

Is There A Standard For Electronıc Musıc In The World? And Do You Thınk There Is An Improvement?

Electronic music in Turkey, showing absolutely development compared to previous years. For both the musicians and the audience. But unfortunately, there is also a fact like this; Seeing that electronic music is on the rise, it is seen that some musicians put their own work aside and step into it. I don’t think this is necessary. If everyone does what they know best, there will be even higher-ups.

What Do You Thınk Of Now You Tech?

Since he first contacted me, I have observed that very high-quality work is being done. I think it is one of the organizations that contribute to our country’s DJs. Now You Tech is an entity that I will always support.
