Baris K at Red Bull Music Academy Toronto 2007

Barış K has been dj’ing at events and venues in Istanbul since 1997, and is famous for his Eurasian retro sets; lots of beats mixed with disco and soul from the Turkish seventies. Together with fellow DJ Ismet, he hosted Istanbul’s first funk-soul parties. Thanks to an abundance of old record stores Barış K has created a unique sound; his Eurasia mixes feature 70’s Turkish music deeply rooted in Anatolian culture. Barış K is also a producer; his remix for clarinet player Hüsnü Şenlendirici was recently released from Doublemoon Records.
