A long-time favourite in his native country, Gadi Mitrani has been representing the Turkish underground with esteem since he first burst onto the scene over 15 years ago. A unique and prodigious talent, Mitrani’s ceaseless love for all things electronic music has led to some of the scene’s most hallowed and celebrated dancefloors. A true visionary, he was one of the first to notice the potential of Turkey’s electronic music scene — and as such is deemed an influential figure to many of the country’s fledgling electronic music producers.
Mitrani’s history with electronic music can be traced back to his early beginnings in Istanbul. Obsessed by the foreign sounds omitting from the radio, he quickly became transfixed with 80’s synth-wave and 90’s pop, before graduating to more contemporary acts like Sasha, The Chemical Brothers and Aphex Twin. A move to NYC in his early teens seemed like a natural progression, and it was here where he encountered the likes of The Limelight and Twilo. Little did he know it back then, but at the time Mitrani was embarking on a musical odyssey that continues to this day.
Famed for his signature deep, tech and prog-heavy sets, Mitrani is a DJ notable for his versatility and a man who’s more than able to chop it up with the best of them. In 2015 he debuted on Kompakt KX courtesy of ‘Key of Stillness’, a suitably momentous cut that introduced Mitrani to a whole new audience and duly elevated his status within the global electronic music process. Supported by well-known DJs such as Hernan Cattaneo and Powel, it’s a true gem in a discography that’s littered with highlights.
The last few years have been equally fruitful for Mitrani. Now a firm fixture in some of the globe’s best-known labels, he’s repped everyone from Pablo Bolivar’s Seven Villas, Lee Burridge & Hoj’s Tale & Tone to Maurice Aymard’s Galaktika over past while, with Hernan Cattaneo, Guy Mantzur, Khen, Gabriel Ananda and Danny Howells all regularly supporting his music in their sets. Production duties aside, Mitrani has also shared the stage with the likes of Guy J, &Me, Michael Mayer, Guy Mantzur, Patrice Baumel, Rampa and Jeremy Olander. Aside from appearing alongside the latter list, he’s also rocked stages recently in Ibiza as well as at Off Sonar and Burning Man: proof if needed that this is a man currently on a fierce upward trajectory.
With future releases in store for the likes of the aforementioned Seven Villas and a track on Hernan Cattaneo’s Sudbeat and numerous other exciting releases in the pipeline, Gadi Mitrani is a name you’re sure to be hearing a lot more from over the past while.
