Experiencing the tail end of the 90s in London after relocating from his native Turkey, Umut began his musical journey playing at underground jazz cafes and raves in the Norfolk woods, quickly earning a spot as a resident DJ with the legendary Rotation Community Radio crew.

A longtime backstage player involved with countless labels, artists and parties in Istanbul, London and his current home Melbourne, Umut’s eclectic and versatile taste has been on regular display alongside the likes of Tako, Jamie Tiller, Nick The Record, Rahaan and The Black Dog to name a few, with his affinity for the wonderfully obscure shining through on recent appearances for Red Light Radio and Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide FM.

Currently working on some new musical endeavours of his own, including a forthcoming collaboration with respected Australian re-issuers Left Ear Records, Umut’s own Rotation imprint will be launching in 2018 with an LP from Perth percussion maestro Phil Stroud among the first run of 12”s set for release.
