Having started his career in radio, DJ Pepe is no stranger to the art of spinning records. Musically, he moves between 1970s African sounds, Mexican electro-cumbia, dusty Turkish funk, Brazilian clasico, Brooklyn-brewed beats and club-friendly brass music. Since moving to NYC from his native Istanbul a decade ago he has played out his global folk and electronic sounds at a variety of parties and dance events, including Turntables on the Hudson, Brooklyn Museum's First Saturdays series, and the NY Gypsy Festival Boat Party. Over the years he has appeared on WKCR, WNYC, WFMU, and East Village Radio, and he continues to produce world music concerts and festivals in New York.
