Musical career[edit]

At the age of 22, Yeter came into recognition by winning Burn & MTV Dance Heat DJ Contest 2004. As a result, he performed at MTV Dance Floor Chart Party in Malta. The same year, he came second in Miller Master Dj Contest, earning himself a respectable place in EDM scene.

In 2013, he released the single "Storm" in Amsterdam. The song reached within the Top 100 spots on the dance charts Internationally. At the same time, he shot a music video for the song "Storm" in the Netherlands.

After ten years, Yeter started a new page in his career with his "New World" project; "new songs with a new world".
