“I can smell what they really want. Energy,” Turkish-Dutch DJ Burak Yeter explains about the experience of performing and inviting a crowd to party with him when he's hitting (and conducting) the decks around the world. Famous and previously known for taking a 100-piece orchestra with him on the road, it's small surprise that he's now planning on entering the stratosphere and atmosphere: “Very soon I will play my music at 55,000 feet!”
The Space Project is the culmination of an ambition and a dream that's on track to come true for him. “The capsule is done and ready in Barcelona. Nobody has done it before,” he excitedly explains about the eye-rubbing plan, set to occur live on YouTube. Decks will be placed inside and Burak will go to space with this capsule and balloon. His 'immersive DJ experience' Space Concerts are next level visual events, and his NFT tracks 'Jupiter', 'Mars', 'Black Hole' and 'Cosmic' have all been part and parcel of this big reveal.
