Though being a creative mind and a businessman at the same time is a bit hard to pull, Istanbul's Ali Sahinbas aka Fuchs stands as an exception. After a brief stint in the 9 to 5 world, he has co-founded FG 93.7 FM, one of Istanbul's first dance music radio stations in 1999 and kickstarted what seems to be a lifelong career in radio & music.
He had already started DJing by then, which quickly turned from a hobby into a professional endeavor, which would cater to his creative needs. As one of the most in demand dj's of Istanbul he has to this day played in hundreds of clubs both in Turkey and abroad, such as the Ministry of Sound & Cable in London; Liquid, Bar 13 and Nublu in New York & Rex in Paris. His energetic performances, open-minded selection and inspirational sequencing have made many music crazed dance freaks very happy on the dance floor.
He has also shared the stage with well known DJs and artists such as Underworld, Orbital, Carl Craig, Solomun, Lee Burridge, Pete Tong, Timo Maas, Tobi Neumann, Steve Lawler, Steve Bug, Futureshock, Sander Kleinenberg, Jimpster, Dave Seaman, Ladytron, Roman Flügel, Sandy Rivera, Desyn Masiello, Daddy G, Kevin Yost, Chateau Flight, Clockwork, Jazzanova, James Holden, John Selway etc. and performed at festivals such as Creamfields, Rock’n Coke, Efes Pilsen One Love, WMC Miami and Sziget.
In 2003 he founded Dinamo 103.8 FM (www.dinamo.fm) and became its CEO and musical director in what would be one of his greater accomplishments for the Istanbul electronic music scene. During the seven years at the helm of Dinamo, he's helped it into an institution, which not only provides space for new artists and producers, but also curates and organises various contests such as the noted Miller Music Factory and the legendary festival Radar Live.
His most recent venture is once again in radio. He has become the deputy general manager in Spectrum Medya, the biggest radio group in Turkey and helped found the (http://karnaval.com) digital radio platform.
He continues to appear at as many parties as he can all over the world, with his dedicated fanbase always by his side, or a beat behind him.
