Event Details


26 January



Having the advantage of being born from a musician mother, Tankut Karakurt grew up listening to a huge variety of musical styles. By the time he was 17, making mix tapes for friends in high school led his way to playing at house parties for friends and family. In time, besides his residency at popular venues of their times such as Onyx, Sherlock Holmes, Vogue, Havana, Da Mario, Laila, Zihni and many more, performing at private events was not a hobby anymore.

Today, he is now very well known for his wedding and party DJing, a 12 year residency in Istanbul’s unique “Ulus 29” up until 2016, and the glamorous, hype happy hours for The Beach Of MOMO in Cesme, and MOMO Bodrum. During the time of his residency at Ulus 29 he also had private performances at Boujis London, Jimmyz Monte Carlo and Indochine Zurich.

He also worked on his digital music content management skills using his knowledge on the national music market, and created Mynet Music with his colleagues, presenting the biggest local free music database into the web world under Mynet Inc. roof.

He also acted as the General Manager and Head Of Music for Turkey's top Turkish music radio station, Powerturk, for more than 20 years.

Tankut Karakurt is currently the music curator and acting DJ at today's most popular venues in Turkey; Momo Bebekoy, The Beach of Momo and Momo Bodrum. He is well known with his style of blending happy Mediterranean sounds with Indie, disco, house and Techno tunes.

There's also a very good chance that you'll see him performing at private hype parties and celebrations.
