Influenced by labels like Proper Talent and Metalheadz, Can Celik, also known as underdog (with the definitive lowercase 'u'), has been a champion in drum 'n bass culture around his homeland, Turkey and could be seen regularly DJing on NRG-FM. Following the completion of his degree in film and TV, Can relocated to London to study sound recording and music technology at the prestigious Islington Music Workshop.
Then working multiple jobs, the Turk would finance his studio with his earnings. Inspired by the completion of his first tune, Can sent the finished product to Good Looking labelhead, LTJ Bukem. The positive feedback received became an inspiration, and encouraged him to move forward. Later years also saw underdog performing to a wider influence on Turkey's premier dance music station, Dinamo FM.
2008 with a Knowledge feature saw his first release with DJ Rap's Proper Talent, proving that inspirations do come full circle. Underdog can also be found cooking up some "Soul Food" on Dinamo FM. Catch him onTuesdays´ from 00.00 A.M.- 01.00 A.M.
