Turkish trio Islandman have been busy of late with festival and club gigs around the globe. Now they are setting off on a cross cultural sound journey with their second album “Kaybola” (which means to get lost to find a new way in Turkish)
Label: Music For Dreams
The album has been 2 years in the making and the result will no doubt gain a whole new fanbase.
An intoxicating mix of experimental electronics punctuated by distinctly Turkish instrumentation.
The album features the single Lamani a hypnotically psychedelic hip-swiveler of a track.
It also features their latest single Dimitro which is their superb re-work of a traditional Bulgarian wedding song using 808 drum machine & bass to work it into a slow-mo dance track whilst retaining the raw vocals and ritualistic feeling.
Tolga found the original record whilst digging in a world music record store in Istanbul and immediately fell in love with the vocals.
Other highlights on the record include sunset, chill fave Khepre, the dancefloor chugger Shu & the superbly catchy trumpet banger Sahara, Pink Floyd vibes on the hippie synth based Hold Your Breath.
Altogether a wonderful new album by islandman who has taken another musical leap forward from his critically acclaimed debut album Rest in Space.
