Mahmut Orhan’s fresh combination of soulful deep house, groovy indie dance, and worldly elements from his own cultural experiences has landed him solidly amongst today’s most promising dance music artists.
With the 2016 release of his hit track “Feel (feat. Sena Sener),” Orhan amassed 160 million combined streams on YouTube and Spotify; received top-20 honours in both iTunes’ Dance and Global in close to two dozen countries; reached the #1 track in iTunes’ Dance and Main Charts in 11 countries and 5 territories respectively; and rose to #25 Worldwide on Shazam—and that’s all for one song in his growing catalogue of inspired work.
Bursa-born Mahmut Orhan got his feet wet in the dance world by remixing tracks from the 80s and 90s. After steadily gaining momentum with releases on multiple labels, he is now approaching the forefront of the global house community. The aforementioned “Feel,” released by Ultra Records, is a strong display of his impending trajectory. Orhan’s artistry to date has received not only a number of official accolades, but also respectful nods from radio stations, tastemakers, and bloggers.
Orhan’s iconic sound is rooting itself deeply inside the conscious of the collective dance music community, and its momentum isn’t showing signs of slowing down.
