//"SUBLIMINAL" IS OUT NOW 140619 SUBLIMINAL

"We determine our life with the most powerful tool: The Subconscious Mind"

The inspiration for this one came from the book 'The Power Of Your Subconscious Mind' by Dr. Joseph. Basically our programming and conditioning determines how we live our lifes. By getting aware of that, we can work on the concepts and dogmas we're holding on.

Somehow this inspired me to make and title this track "Subliminal". Hope you like it!"

//THE LAUNCH OF WWW.MELIHKOR.COM 050619 Korona Flare

Welcome! One of my biggest projects is finished, already worked and coded for over a year on this website. Now I think it´s the best time to publish it, alongside with the launch of my new project "K:orona".

The purpose of this website is kinda like a portfolio, with all the music, art and different projects I do. A "blog", to make everything more personal + authentic, secluded from the rules and noise of social media.

No presets, themes, templates or something else were used, just purely coded in HTML and CSS.

//LAUNCH OF K:ORONA 120219 Korona Flare

"Well, a few maybe wonder, what the K:orona thing, that I started this year, is all about?

In short, it is my own brand.

I was looking for some "output" for my music, for my art, for my visuals and all the visions I have in my mind.

I was looking for something "unlimited", not bound to rules or politics, because my principle on doing content is about being something to breath.

And that needs a lot of room. An open concept.

So that´s why I started K:orona, a label, a brand, a tag, a badge, my vision.

It's all about doing and putting stuff out in the most authentic & truest form.

I once heard a quote by Les Brown: "Life is God’s gift to us and how we live our lives is our gift to god." K:orona is basically the "mediator" to give my gift to the world.

To try to make this world a little bit better with what I do. And to inspire people's life, to raise up their consciousness.

And there is just a lot more to come.

We also have to work together and you can let me know, what little things we can do in our everyday life, to make this day a little bit more better, a litte bit more brighter?"

//PODCAST MIX & INTERVIEW FOR FSOE PARALLELS 040218 MELIH KOR TEXTURE

One of the most forward thinking artists of the moment, Melih Kor, takes over our This Is Parallels series with an undeniably enjoyable masterclass in groove, flow, and energy. Combining rhythmic progressive house and trance, Melih showcases his amazing ear for unforgettable hooks and funky beats.



INTERVIEW

Parallels: Thanks for joining us! What’s new in the world of Melih Kor?

Melih Kor: Ahhh lot´s of things! My latest track “Signature Code” just came out on 15th December. Got an amazing feedback from all the people out there! Also signed a track with Armada/Cloud9, but more infos later about that. And I just finished the follow up for Night Rider! This one is even bigger, heavier and designed to play in big venues.

Other than that, setting up myself for this year, I started also with a new concept for my socials to combine art and music.

Parallels: We know there are no real secrets to music production, but what are some tips you can share with aspiring producers eager to learn?

Melih Kor: In my opinion people should reflect themselves first. Talent and self awareness are extremely important, if not the most important aspect of music production or general in anything. I needed a long time to reflect on things where I am good and bad at and so I can only recommend other people to go through this process and decide the best for themselves.

If you know that music is really really really your thing and you will keep doing this with much love, put 110% of hard work and passion into this craft. You will change your and other peoples lives for the better, guaranteed!

This is the advice I can give and what I found out what works for me, the rest of the way is tailored for the individual.

Parallels: If we looked at your bookshelf or e-reader, what would we find?

Melih Kor: I have a lot of books and I love to read about philosophical and personal development topics. For example authors I really like are Dale Carnegie, Osho, Rumi & Napoleon Hill. Also just got today “Die Traumdeutung” by Sigmund Freud.

Parallels: Can you walk us through your creative process in writing new music?

Melih Kor: I honestly don´t have a specific process in writing music. I just do and experiment. I don´t think much about how things should be and so letting go and being in the present moment with my craft is the most important thing on writing music for me. The rest flows naturally. If this doesn´t happen, I take a break, go out for a walk or take a nap. Then I am back again.

I tried in the past to sound specific like this and that, but always I felt myself resisting these “forced” ideas. So I dumped everything except the raw idea and created something, what came from my heart – as cheesy as this sound.

The results were astonishing and in general the (right) people will love you for staying true to yourself. Like Snoop Dog said, once you be you, who could be you, but you?

Parallels: Thanks for your time! Any last words you would like to share with the audience?

Melih Kor: I´d like to give a big ‘thank you’ to everybody and everyone who keeps supporting me and supported me in the past. I am really thankful for the love I get for my craft. It always fulfills me, when I see that I enriched other people´s lives with my music and art. Hope to see you maybe somewhere around the globus.












//RELEASE: SIGNATURE CODE 151217 MELIH KOR TEXTURE

Eyes closed and dreaming highly recommended!

//PARTYFLOCK INTERVIEW 100817 MELIH KOR ELECTRONIC FAMILY CONTEST WINNER

Catching up with Melih Kor

Electronic Family took a bold step by organizing a DJ contest for this year's edition. First prize? Opening the mainstage area on saturday. No "likes" involved, not a contest about inviting as many friends on Facebook. Just send your mix and show your skills, and Melih did. The winner of this contest is Melih Köroglu from Nurnberg, Germany. DJ name: Melih Kor. You might know him because he also played at the Future Sound of Egypt clubnight in Panama in April or for you might have heard one of his releases. Time to get to know Melih a little bit better! 

You are a very creative person. Besides making music you also have some beautiful paintings on your website.
Yeah I'm drawing from a very young age already but maybe never developed it as good as my music though. The music was also always there since the beginning – I got blown away by the music of Mr. OizoDaft Punk and general electronic music at my early years (my sister told me). When I was 16 I finally bought myself a MIDI keyboard and got myself more into the production of music.

Do you have ambitions to combine the visual & music?
Yes I am doing it a bit, but not that actively. For now I'm focusing on my music first. I feel it needs more time and attention to get the best out of it and so there isn't that much time left for my paintings. For now I want to pursue my music ambitions first.

What are those ambitions? Where can we expect you in a couple of years?
That's a good question and I actually have thought a lot about it lately. I definitely have ambitions because otherwise you'll never get the most out of it. But it is not that I have goals that I NEED to reach to feel successful as an artist. I have some goals I would like to achieve, but if it isn't working out like I wanted to, it is not that I will feel very disappointed. It is very hard to plan something for the next years, let alone for five years, because unexpected things can happen every time. You change your mindset, another occasional thing happens. So I minimized my long term goals to only 2-3 to be realistic and not to be overwhelmed by everything. For me the most important thing is to be in the moment and develop from there on. Because NOW I have control about what I can do and that is always developing myself as an artist.

Your tracks are a blend of different styles. Some have more Deep House or Techno influences, other a bit more Trancy. What gives you inspiration?
Inspiration for my tracks just pops up at random moments and then I try to record some new melodies by singing and record it on my phone. On other moments I get my ideas from browsing through new sounds and samples. I also try to experiment, come up with something new and not necessarily inspire by other people. But generally artists who inspire me are guys like Eric PrydzArmin van BuurenDeadmau5 and his label Mau5trap, Daft Punk and labels like Drumcode and FSOE Excelsior. Besides that, the night gives me a lot of inspiration for example. Walking around at night, the street lights, the mystery, the atmosphere. That's also where my track "Night Rider" came from. I want to make music that I can listen during a drive and in the meanwhile enjoy the scenery, at night as well during the day. In general I think it is important not to sound like somebody else. I want to be myself, I can only be the best at being myself then by trying to be like another person. Because there are already those other persons, why should I be another one of them? I don't want to be the next Armin or Paul van Dyk, I want to be the first Melih Kor and bring something personal - bringing my true self out.

The names you've mentioned tells you have a lot inspirations outside the regular trance artists?
I don't want to put myself in a box. I want to have a free mind and make music that's close to my feelings. I take the best elements from all kinds of styles and combine it into something that is me. I don't consider myself as an trance artist, but just as an artist. I combine the elements of those styles and for now the result is something that can be considered closest to Trance.

For a relative new name you have played some nice gigs and released cool tracks. That's a great start, what are your next steps?
There are a lot of unreleased tracks waiting for a release. I just have finished a big project and that's a bootleg I have made of Greece 2000. It is finished and now I'm looking if there are options to release it. But other than that, there is so much more to come.
