DJ Mag Turkey, the latest worldwide licensee, is officially launching this weekend with a spectacular party.
Deniz Koyu (pictured above), the Turkish-German DJ/producer — who has already released on labels such as Fedde Le Grand's Flamingo Recordings, Sebastian Ingrosso's Refune, Axwell's Axtone and Spinnin' Records — headlines the event on Saturday 18th October.
The eagle-eyed amongst you will notice that this is also the date for the Top 100 DJs awards show. The party will also feature the countdown on live screens as it progresses.
DJ K-Billy, Ugur Project and Emre Arisev are also DJing on the night in Istanbul. Visuals are by Di Lala.
DJ Mag Turkey has actually had the license for 18 months, but because of the Gezi Riots it wasn't able to start operating straight away. The website went live last November, and it started publishing a DJ Weekly — it reaches 18,000 dance music fans in Turkey.
DJ Mag Turkey is also already highly active on social media, with 413,000 Facebook 'Likes' and 60K followers on Twitter.
