Soundscapes and aural pleasures – a cosmic musical safari.
Hakan is the official Paradigm Shift Summit DJ. Hakan will be providing the soundtrack to this cosmic musical voyage as he sets the tone with an eclectic range of diverse sounds in an ambient down-tempo style during the breaks at the summit.
Hakan is originally from the vibrant city of Istanbul, Turkey. In 1994 he joined Radio 2019, Istanbul's first underground dance music station as an intern and grew up with the Turkish underground dance music scene playing clubs and festivals across Turkey. His musical journey has included residencies in memorable clubs such as Crystal, 11:11, Deep and Hangar 2019 to managing musical proceedings in 909 collective's clubs for the past 10 years or so.
In 2012 Hakan's career-path brought a move to Australia and he was then introduced to the Australian underground scene. Hakan now happily enjoys gigging around his new hometown of Brisbane and also spins for established collectives such as Subtrakt and Sundae as well as Spice in Sydney. Recently Hakan and Rikki from Subtrakt put on monthly free events and on the third Saturday of every month as drum.
