In an age where very few Artists break the mold and truly shine through as innovative artists, Dutch/Turkish star Ummet Ozcan is consistently reinventing dance music and raising the bar in every way. With Holland at the epicentre of contemporary dance music, Ummet reflects on the infectious nature of the genre saying, “The EDM scene has been very big there since I was a teenager. We’ve had dance music playing on radio stations for over 20 years now.” Indeed, growing up in the midst of this movement has been a great inspiration to Ozcan who is now at the forefront of this global phenomenon. Since achieving his first major success in 2011 with “Reboot,” which spent 7 weeks at #1 on Beatport, the veteran DJ’s handful of major hits have been sampled in his peers’ radio podcasts and played at festival mainstages all over the world.
The seasoned artists speaks from experience, when he says, “Producing and DJing belong together; you make something in the studio and test it out in a show. DJing is fun, but producing is something I can do all my life and is the thing I started out with.”
Ozcan’s original pieces from 2014, “Smash!“ and “Raise Your Hands” have become instantaneous hits, racking up millions of YouTube views while his collaborations with R3HAB and Nervo on “Revolution” premiered at #1 on Beatport and his joint effort with W&W on “The Code” was one of the most played tracks during Ultra Festival 2013.
