erdem helvac˛oglu A Walk Through the Bazaar (CD, £4.25)label: Locust
Tremendous Turkish electronic talent. His response to the day to day activities on the Istanbul market is almost like an enriched memory of that place that musically retains much of that raw earth feeling one initially encounters. By incorporating field recorded voices into harmonically rich choruses, he elevates the source material into a highly rhythmic, infectiously danceable tune that seems to soar above the very marketplace. Reminiscent of Holger Czukay's short-wave radio experiments.
