With their second album titled ‘Kaybola’ set for an official release in the UK on 1st May, Islandman are giving us a little look at what to expect with ‘Dimitro’.
Led by multi-instrumentalist and producer, Tolga Böyük, alongside Eralp Güven (percussion) and Erdem Başer (guitars), the trio’s distinct sound draws on a luxurious pool of influences across the 70’s psychedelic music scene in Turkey including, Eden Ahbez, Can Kozlu, Okay Temiz and Baba Zula.
Check out the opening cut Dimitro, a dancefloor belter, with middle eastern-inspired 808 bounce, Bulgarian wedding song vocal samples, funk-tipped bass groove and psychedelic four to the floor vibes.
