Vinyl LP, comes with a fold-out poster showing the İmç building complex in Istanbul.

This follow-up offers a fresh choice of tracks exploring the sounds of Turkey in the 1960s and 1970s. Their extraordinary blending of Western and Turkish elements and the variety of styles thrown into the mix are so constantly surprising that digging deeper will only yield richer revelations.

The compilation presents a wide selection of music for dancing and listening, ranging from Anatolian rock to psychedelic pop and from oriental funk to far-out electrified folk. It contains an Anatolian rock anthem by Seyhan Karabay, superb harmonics and orchestral interplay by Erkut Taçkın, cool moog folk-funk by Hakki Yücel and Mıhrıcan Bahar, psychedelic sounds by Sevil & Ayla, smooth pop beats by Esmeray and Ömür Göksel, experimental pop approaches by Rüçhan Çamay and Kim Bunlar, heavy groove folk by Zerrin Zeren and Taci Özmen, and disco funk by Disco Div Div.

Made by the curator of “Bosporus Bridges Vol. 2”, “The Trip” and “Saz Beat” the compilation “Saz Beat II” will be released on Corvo Records’ sublabel Global Pop First Wave._DSC1066
