Friday, 16 June 2023 – Turkish-German DJ & producer Deniz Koyu is revealing his new dance weapon ‘Take Your Soul’, released on Tomorrowland Music today! ‘Take Your Soul’ kicks off with luscious vocals by female songwriter & vocalist BELLA X and comes in the shape of a powerful and energetic record with tension rising throughout the entire track, while the drop features an eye-opening synth that is ready to take your soul... After last year’s ‘Clicks’, this is Deniz Koyu’s second release on Tomorrowland’s imprint. Swedish superstar Alesso has already played ‘Take Your Soul’ during his performance at Ultra Music Festival in Miami in March.

About Deniz Koyu
DJ and producer Deniz Koyu’s masterful take on dance music has enraptured club culture for over a decade. With genre-defining remixes that deftly navigate between his progressive house roots and pop aesthetics, he has masterminded a string of successful hits making him a quintessential figure in a constantly changing landscape. He has crafted high-octane bangers with the likes of Alesso, Nicky Romero, Galantis, as well as Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, all whilst racking up stage credentials at Tomorrowland, Ultra Music Festival, EDC, Creamfields, and ADE Festival.
Koyu burst onto the scene in 2011 scoring his first hit, Tung, which was released on Fedde Le Grand’s label, Flamingo Recordings. He was quick to hit his stride: Tung, as well as the following singles, Hydra and Bong soon became progressive house anthems that renowned DJs added to their sets. Remixes for Zedd, David Guetta, Miike Snow, Fedde Le Grand, and more followed suit; names like Axwell and Sebastian Ingrosso sang his praises. His bookings as a live DJ exploded, establishing him as one of the most in-demand artists to play EDM stages the world over. He simultaneously churned out tracks on labels including Axtone, Refune, Spinnin’ Records, and Big Beat.
Koyu’s catalog encapsulates far more than notable collaborations: A true sonic shifter and an ever-evolving artist, his formula of synth buzz skillfully unites a community steeped in inclusivity. Musically inclined from a very young age, he spent his formative years immersed in the intricacies of music production. This self-taught, holistic approach to creating emotive melodies with a longing value is shaped by a perpetual balancing act—one in which soaring emotions and simplicity surpass sonic clarity and complexity. Today, this vision informs his every endeavor as a wholehearted producer. He is also a long-standing name in the list of DJ Mag’s Top 100 and currently resides at 72.
Koyu is not one to sit still: A globetrotter at heart, his energy-stoking shows have taken him from Europe to the USA and Southeast Asia. Touring extensively, and conquering the main stages of Ultra Miami, Tomorrowland, and a great number of EDC festivals, he has repeatedly supported peers like Alesso and KSHMR. From 2012—the year he opened for Tiësto at Berlin’s O2 Arena and got together with Axwell at New York City’s Cosmic Opera—Koyu joined the resident roster of Las Vegas’ Wynn Nightlife for three consecutive years. The success of I Wanna Know, his 2016 remix collaboration with Alesso, further cemented Koyu’s status; the artists crossed paths again in 2019 for their signature remix of Alesso’s Time. While releasing music on Spinnin’ Records, his most recent successes include Paradise in collaboration with Nicky Romeo, which is about to hit 40 million Spotify streams.
