MURAT TEPELI (OSTGUT TON / PHILPOT)
ALI SCOTT (LOVE NOT MONEY)
So on paper Summer is here! Meaning Hyde park sessions, BBQ's, bank holiday party's, multiple festivals and for many, us included that means Ibiza. As we are taking the nest brand over to ibiza for our first season on the white isles, we thought it was only right to throw one last knees up to celebrate this fact. But fear not all those staying put in leeds, will be holding the fort steady back on home soil with some amazing party's line up over here too.
This month we have a talent who has dominated the german scene for years, its' Murat Tepeli: Murat has had releases on Ostgut Ton, Philpot and more recently AVA he often finds himself DJ'ing at Panaroma Bar in Berlin and being one of prosumers closest allies the duo have had many releases together.
MURAT TEPELI (OSTGUT TON / PHILPOT )
Murat Tepeli's trade is poise. In his sets, he creates perfect harmony between ecstasy and ass shaking on one hand and gentle emotion and elegance on the other. In his production, he often pairs melancholy with the necessity to dance, opulence and reduction, loud and quiet. Professionally, Murat Tepeli walks the tightrope of being a DJ in the Club and a surgeon in the operating theatre. He combines these extremes with a playful energy and manages to put the full range of emotions and experiences into his sets.
In the middle of the 90s, Murat Tepeli started DJing, putting influences like De La Soul, Black Sheep, Pharcyde, KRS-One, Bahamadia, Monie Love and Adeva into his first sets. New Jack Swing, Drum & Bass and House lived as equals in his record bag for a long time. Slowly, House took over in representing Murats feelings and became the base in his sets for excursions towards the other styles that move and influence him. His musical horizon spans from Occident to Orient, arabesque to wave, from the clear sequences of synthpop to mystical chords. Murat Tepeli doesn't see this as a contradiction, he uses the conjunctive elements but also the contrast to create a sweeping story in his own signature.
Through his energising sets in clubs such as Zukunft, Fabric, Rex and Paradiso, at festivals in countries like Poland, Israel and India, with regular gigs at Panorama Bar and a residency at the Cologne-based Pulstar nights, Murat Tepeli built himself an international fanbase. With his mixture of physicalness and emotion, his sets are always representing the pulse of life, a beating heart full of emotion.
