Vakant

Tolga Fidan Mix

This producer belongs to the second batch of discoveries we made ​​with the label Vakant. This French is one of those Djs we call globe-trotters. After leaving his native Paris, he spent his childhood in Istanbul, after he moved to London to currently reside in the capital of electronic music, Berlin. When he was only 14 he started to play bass and guitar, influenced by groups and artists such as Sonic Youth, Autechre or the Austrian experimental music producer, Fennesz.

In his teens he became interested in the deep techno and the deepest house music, being the youngest artist to publish Vakant in 2006. It was then when he introduced his first ep Now I’m weak. After this first job, and another successive in 2008, called the attention of the European circuit and released on important labels like Eklo, Cadenza, Cocoon, New Kanada, and even the late Freak N Chic. He reaches a turning point in his career when he published his first album in 2011, called We’re strangers now, and a second album the following year, called Rogue.
