“This playlist was created for fun and for my own convenience to be able to listen to the songs from different genres without changing my mood”


What is the soundtrack to your life?

It may sound like a cliche, but it's Light of the Seven from Ramin Djawadi. It contains many ups and downs during the song just like the life itself.

Favorite artist? 

My favourite artist as a DJ would be David August from Germany and as a vocal  my favourite artist would be Baris Manco from Turkey.

If you had the chance to interview an artist, who would it be? (Dead or alive)

I would interview Baris Manco. He is one of my favourite artists for all time and he died when I was 7 years old. I would really like to listen to his career stories from himself.

What is the best concert you have ever been to? 

The best concert I've ever been to is Nicolas Jaar's live performance in Chicago two years ago. He was also singing differently than his usual performances and all the experimental sounds he created were awesome.

Do you play any instruments? If not, any you would love to learn?

Unfortunately no. I would love to learn piano, actually not just learn it, but master it.

Do you have a life slogan? 

Don't share your goals, it creates instant gratification and harms the enthusiasm.

What is the most annoying song in the world? 

My Humps - Black Eyed Peas

What’s more important to you? Music; or Lyrics? Why? 

Depends on the genre you're listening to and also on your mood. Overall, meaningful lyrics are always better than just the meaningless rhymes.
