Barış K.
Barış K's been a leading force in Istanbul nightlife since the late 90's. Born in Istanbul to an ideal environment to trigger his innate potential for music. His father, being an amateur Turkish Classical

musician collecting records of varied genres, from traditional Turkish music to Euro disco, Mediterranean pop to New Wave created a wide spectrum of sounds from orient to occident.

He started DJing in Istanbul while also working as a waiter in 1996, Back then he played 7 days a week,12 hours a day.. Around the same time he started working at Istanbul's first indy record store, label, organization company and the distributor Kod Muzik, where he joined forces together with late DJ fellow, Ismet.

Together they started a series of soul, funk, rare groove parties and produced the radio show “Satürn” on Açık Radyo for more than 7 years, focusing deeply into underground-indie hip hop and black music of all kinds. By 2001, he become a the resident at the legendary Istanbul club, (((godet)))’s 2nd floor lounge,

Red Room, which used to be a boutique in the 70's, with its art deco interiors untouched until then.

After 2007, his Eurasia Mixes trilogy focusing intensely on Turkey's hidden psychedelic funk-disco-folk music heritage, featured on D-I-R-T-Y, and Beats In Space received him global acclaim. In 2011, his Eurasia edits were released in “Istanbul 70“ compilation on Nublu Records, New York, propelling him into the premier league of dance music. Barış is one of the co-founders of (((godet)))’s predecessor, Mini Muzikhol club in Istanbul, where he still holds a monthly residency. He was also a co-curator of the Anapop festival that staged performances of the 60's-70's Turkish Psychedelic bands as well as contemporaries of psyche-folk. In 2012, his remix for Pollyester’s “Voices” was released on Permanent Vacation.

Barış is also one of the two core members of the Istanbul based live folk fusion project, Insanlar. Their first 12” vinyl release, “Kime Ne”, came out on Barış’ own made label Aboov Plak in December 2013 and later on Honest Jon’s. Their improv live shows have been featured in top festivals like CTM, Sonar, Garbicz and will make its way to Dekmantel this year. Baris keeps on playing his signature blend of house, techno, disco and psychedelic dance music in top clubs and festivals around the world.
