Kormak is not just another Australian producer taking the world by storm, he is one of a kind. His music journey was heritage-inspired and began by cutting edits of Turkish classics for the local migrant community in Sydney’s Western Suburbs. “Rage” featured religiously in his family tv room on a weekly basis, it is this indulgence of incredible music and an obsession with Armand Van Heldens sound that triggered Kormak to the concept of sampling and music production since teenagehood.
Residencies in the infamous Kings Cross district provided Kormak with an outlet to develop his unique performing style. Kormak’s signature brand of house music blurs the lines between classic and modern interpretations of the genre, and as a result has found homes among an impressive list of international labels. Over the years, Kormak’s sound has truly outgrown his Sydney roots, making a bold arrival on the European circuit. Releasing with the seminal Defected Records (DFTD), Kormak’s ‘Love On Line’ was an iconic record for the 2019 summer season, reaching #10 on the Beatport Overall Charts, clocking up over 5 million combined streams, and was championed by icons of the scene including Claptone, Patrick Topping, Marco Carola, Jamie Jones, Camelphat, Simon Dunmore and more. BBC Radio 1 support followed in abundance from Pete Tong, Annie Mac & Danny Howard, as well as fellow host Mista Jam going as far as labeling the track a ‘future classic.’
Momentum for Kormak is on the up, his latest release “I Want You” with Sam Divine has received both worldwide dj and editorial support, forthcoming releases on Australia’s leading dance imprint Club Sweat and Lee Foss’ Repopulate Mars have been setting the mood at festival dance floors across the northern hemisphere summer with plays by Hayden James, Claptone, Nora En Pure, Lee Foss, Torren Foot, Ferreck Dawn, CID, DOMBRESKY, Sam Divine and more.
After a sold out solo show at Oxford Art Factory in Sydney, Kormak has joined one of Asia Pacific’s biggest booking agents, Seismic Talent. You can catch the tastemaker perform at Return to Rio Festival and Your Paradise in Fiji followed by a national run in 2023.
