Boomkat Product Review:
Legendary Turkish jazz drummer Okay Temiz (The Don Cherry Trio) lends his skins to a clutch of coiled, pendulous grooves by Belgium’s soFa and german musician Houschyar
Initially conceived in Istanbul, 2018 as a duo work by soFa and Houschyar, the recordings took a very smart turn after the pair paid a visit to the drum studio of Okay Temiz, one of Turkey’s most lauded musical figures. Drawing on well over a half century of experience since 1955, Temiz brings his serpentine percussion and home built electronics to the original grooves in six hip-swivelling parts, slipping down the groovehole somewhere between the likes of Tolouse Low Trax, Red Axes and even Christos Chondropolous with a mesmerising application of instinctive, arcane rhythmelodic tekkers linking middle eastern traditions to Brazilian styles via Berimbau and Cuica, plus self-built instruments that really lend the EP a unique tone and twang.
