Known for dancing in between different genres and styles O.BEE generates unknown yet familiar sonic landscapes, in a signature style that reflects his own musical identity; optimistic yet rebellious and filled by passion.
Liberating the dance floor from the accustomed rules and stepping away from functional expectations, he instead cultivates musical trips for both the dancer and the listener. O.BEE is a regular in his hometown Istanbul, and in his current base New York, where he completed his studies in Contemporary Music in the New School and continues to develop his refined take on dance music.
After bouncing around parties for several years he joined the ReSolute family, a new home, where he has had the honors of hosting and accompanying many artists, such as Zip, Chez Damier, Sonja Moonear, Thomas Melchior, Fumiya Tanaka, a:pria:r, that have been true inspirations for him. Recent years have seen him travel beyond the horizons of the big apple, playing at Suma Beach and minimuzikhol in Istanbul, Unleash and Colors in London and also played venues such as Hoppetosse, CDV, Salon zur Wilden Renate and KaterBlau in Berlin, Sundae in Paris, Macarena Club in Barcelona, to name a few.
While also finding a place for himself in accomplished festivals such as Comunite Festival in Mexico, Chillout and Electronica Festivals in Turkey, UVA Festival in Spain and Okeechobee in America, sharing his unique record collection with the world, on the bill with visionaries such as Mulatu Astatke, Ambiq and Thievery Corporation. In October 2017 he was invited to perform alongside other Turkish artists in Boiler Room’s Istanbul special, closing out the session after an array of wide acts and DJ sets. O.BEE has been working hard in and out of the studio with his partner Rona Budak on their project “Enstantane” which functions as both a record label and an multi-disciplinary artist collective. Enstantane 001 is to be released in first half of 2018, along with an event series and the subscription based website enstantane.io
