Now Hear This: Erkan Ocaklı | Bir Çar​ı​klı K​ö​ylü Baba

This Turkish artist's ’70s gems are hypnotic, funky, syncopated & surprisingly heavy.

525

THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE:Erkan Ocaklı’s Bir Çar​ı​klı K​ö​ylü Baba contains 12 tracks of psych-disco-funk-folk-soul sounds of Turkish library music from the late 1970s. All tracks are taken from the original master tapes.

Here is one the first examples of Turkish Black Sea funky. Instrumented by wah-wah and rhythm guitars, bass, Moog synthesizer, Rhodes, percussion, strings, brass, sax, saz and electric baglama, the tracks are laced with cool and funny Black Sea-accented vocals.

This album is a must-have for any library / DJ / vinyl collector and samples hunter. Great Turkish disco-folk tunes from beginning to end, with gorgeous funky grooves.”
