Harun Iyicil and Kerem Akdag met in 2016 when both were searching for like minded producers. Coming from Istanbul, the sounds they represented were rare to come by in the city and this made them click instantly.

After forming ‘Flytones’ they have started working internationally with recording artists, writers and musicians, producing in a wide variety of genres. They mostly gravitate towards jazzy, funky, hip-hop, house related frequencies, meanwhile aiming to expand their boundaries in terms of genres.

Flytones is a journey of sound and an experiment which focuses on creativity, melody and the beauty of harmony in music.
