Tell us about yourself and how you got into music.
I have been making music since I was 13 years old and I started with the Turkish movement. My father, who always supported me, paid for my courses at that time. Now, I can play 6 instruments. Music has always fascinated me and I can’t imagine doing anything else.
How did you start using FL Studio & what does it mean to your productions?
In 2013, my father bought me an iMac, which I used to buy FL Studio and start producing. FL Studio is very important to me as it was the first step for me in the music industry. To me, as a newbie, it was the best DAW of all. I looked at all of them and FL Studio was by far the best DAW.

Tell us about your work and some of the artists you have worked with.
Around 2017/2018, I put my focus into Hip Hop. Before that, it was more Turkish stuff. Since I always play my guitars or piano myself, I started receiving frequent requests to record things, and this is how I achieved my biggest success, with the song “Olabilir” by Mero. I was asked to help produce the album and this helped set off my music career. The Saz (Turkish guitar) was recorded by me, and 8 other songs were also produced by me. Due to my live recordings, also artists got in contact with me such as Capo. The artists I work with like that I record the pieces myself and I work quickly.
Tell us about your production environment and the gear you use.
I have had my own studio for 2 years: 298 Studios in Stuttgart. I mostly use a USB keyboard and a normal guitar, but I also have other instruments in the studio. I also am frequently in other studios and work in different places regularly.
