On Friday 13th April, Swiss-born Turkish producer/DJ Mehmet Aslan provided us with the second instalment of the Phonica Basement Sessions.
Born in Switzerland, Mehmet Aslan is most known for implementing his Turkish heritage to his music, blending it with classic folk music and contemporary electronic beats like we’ve never heard before. Producing a mix of disco, electronic and techno music out of rare Turkish funk tracks, it’s difficult to find someone else doing what he does these days. He started out with a residency at Hinterhof in Basel, and is now based in Berlin where he regularly plays at the iconic venue Renate.
Mehmet has in recent years produced original releases and edits on labels such as Ata’s For Disco Only, Huntleys + Palmers (who signed his first compositions), Disco Halal and Highlife, turning him into a well-known producer within the music scene.
