DJ Solomun publicly apologises following incident at Kappa Futur Festival

Travelling to Turkey and playing a set in front of thousands of fans is a dream for most, but DJ Solomun nearly got himself landed in jail after playing a track which featured a sample of an Islamic call to prayer.
To illustrate how lucky he was to receive only a slap on the wrist and a lot of jeers and boos from the crowd, another DJ, Dax J was sentenced to a year in prison for making the same mistake last year in Tunisia.
Solomun issued a formal apology and destroyed every copy of the track in his or his label's posession.
