How Dıd You Get Into Djıng?

I started myself at home while trying to satisfy my curiosity through the Traktor application. I found myself playing in a nightclub one day, with the support of my friends. 

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

Although I am very confused about this, I find myself constantly following names like Rødhåd and Truncate. 

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

I think it is absolutely necessary. Although I tried to learn with the help of the Camelot map at the beginning, now I think that I am very inadequate and there is a lot of theoretical knowledge that I need to learn. 

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

Being a DJ is also a profession and a source of income for many people, but I think it is not possible to leave the child in me until it fades, as I see it as a means of satisfaction and fulfilling one’s soul. 

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

As I line up my pieces one after the other, my eyes always go to MOY – Bad Gateway or MOY – Megatherium. I always think of placing one of these two at the point I enjoy most and sharing it with people. 

Do They Have A Goal In Musıc And Djıng?

Yes, I am 23 years old, and very recently I realized that I had not been passionately attached to anything and that I had not been involved in my life for a long time. When it comes to music, I don’t want to be in a race with anyone or with the concepts of “the most”. I would rather be able to express myself and my changeable emotions.

How Have You Been Affected By Covıd-19?

My sharing of music with people stopped. It didn’t affect me negatively, materially, or morally.

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

The process is still ongoing and many have been adversely affected. I am sure that the DJs, who can get their rights very hard financially, could not make savings that would put them aside for such a time. I regret and wish them patience, I wish we could do something. 

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

They should be. Music is also a culture, it is nice to enjoy the choices of DJs, who have the same taste, to spend time together, share and gather through this phenomenon DJs. Another part of the work is that the DJ can market himself well, he can direct himself well. There will always be audiences who like to be directed, not chosen.

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

Anyone can be a Dj. Its quality is now up to the developing technology and conditions, not talent.

What Are Your Recommendatıons For New Djs?

They should be open to learning and they should not forget that anyone can be a DJ. Let them sift through their filters over and over again so that they can analyze well what they listen to.

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

I think it is a habit that has taken place in the subconscious. If we think that the voice is a stimulus that stimulates emotions, I think it is because the female vocal is thought to appeal to the whole and emotions. Otherwise, there are very good songs with male vocals.

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

I think that from time to time, group formations work in a massive manner, but electronic music will develop when there is unity rather than a group organization. Together, we can see electronic music developing together.

What Do You Thınk Of Now You Tech?

A platform where DJs come together collectively. I also appreciate that he includes everybody without distinction as to this or that. I hope they will always improve in line with their goals and become an even bigger family.
