Poll 2023: Burak Yeter
Burak Yeter

From: Turkey

DJ style: Various shades of house

Best known for: ‘Tuesday’

Hailing from Istanbul, Turkey, Burak Yeter is a highly-recognisable name on the international EDM scene, captivating audiences with his wide-ranging talent as a DJ, producer and musician — his five million-strong Instagram following is a case in point. From performing live with a full orchestra, and remixing everyone from Depeche Mode to Frank Sinatra, to storming the global charts (his hit ‘Tuesday’ was the 10th most Shazamed song worldwide in 2017), there’s not much this gifted artist can’t turn his hand to, and this year marks his fourth consecutive year in the Top 100.

Yeter's journey began at an early age, playing classical piano and guitar. His dedication and passion for his craft shone through once again in 2023, with tracks like ‘Weekend’ (a collaboration with Kazakh singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Dimash Qudaibergen) emphasising his knack for building irrefutably catchy and melodic dance tunes from seemingly disparate musical genres. Yeter knows how to put on a show too. In 2022 he debuted his ambitious, visually dazzling Space Concerts, and this year he took the project back home, putting on Turkey’s first 360-degree DJ stadium concert with Qudaibergen featuring as a special guest. The sky (or perhaps more accurately, space) is the limit.
