At the very beginning of the 80s, when a few Techno-DJ’s were already celebrating their first success, Turgay Oezcelik aka DJ Tuncay Celik, a DJ and Producer of a new generation with high quality requirements, was born in Erzincan (Turkey), on July 1, 1981.
As usual everything began with a musical instrument. But let’s put this story beside, because everyone knows the stories about hundreds of hobbies of small children. But for him danceable and modern music has always been the most significant style.
The most important were the electronic grooves. He recognized this quite early, while he was raving to this kind of music. „So what?!“, you may think now. „There are many so called
new-generation-artists, who just tell us exactly the same about themselves“. His remarkable skill is his determination to live, feel and express this dream. There might be no feeling like being on a stage, performing in front of a massive crowd, and getting this crowd into trance with your own mix of innovative sound.
It is the individual itself and the emotions which make this mix. A relationship between the artist and the crowd. This relationship will only be achieved if you allow free play to your inspiration. A good DJ recognizes trends and represents them, without hoking his own imagination of music adapted to the mass. DJ Tuncay Celik appreciates
The hard work of all his buddies from the music-business. Electronic Dance Music is reinventing itself continuously. Especially styles like House, Minimal and Techno. For him it would be unacceptable not to sacrifice every day, hours and hours for this music. Because this music is his lifestyle, his vision… and it is still his dream!
DJ Tuncay Celik loves to search the hidden grooves in a track, to redesign and to mix them, targeted in a set with his own spiritual character. It’s like a story, which has to be followed from the very beginning, for the reader to be able to understand its topic. With his electronic cocktail he aims at exactly the people, who respect and appreciate this kind of sound-architecture.
But let’s go back to DJ Tuncay Celik’s career: When he was 18 years old, he could finally start officially his line of business. He was supported by the event-agency “Technotron”, which manages the partybrand “Frisky”. He performed at the following locations: Kaufleuten, Club Q, Supermarket, Rohstofflager, Mad Loft Club, Hive, Cocuna, Superzero, 4Akt, Diagonal, Labor, Escherwyss, Longstreet, Talacker, Loft, D Club, Nordstern, NT Areal, Das Schiff, Baselcitystudios, Oxa, Loveparade, Streetparade, … and many many more (just to list a few of them).
For three years he was the Resident-DJ at the “4AKT” and in other international Places like Germany, France, Italy, Turkey, Russian, Holland, England, Thailand, and many others…
Although DJ Tuncay Celik had many beautiful and excessive moments, the craving is still there. The only possibility to satisfy this hunger was and still is the hard work in the studio. DJ Tuncay Celik and his soulmate “Pendlermusic” spend nearly every day in the studio and work on their experimental grooves, until the tracks are ready. So let’s be curious about what surprises the two artists will have in store for us in the near future.
DJ Tuncay Celik organized the famous “FriskyMusic” events in the legendary rooms of Superzero. He also worked then as a DJ Supervising Tutor with many international DJs for locations like the Q-Club, Härterei, Tonimolkerei, Cityfox, Movingcity.
