Ersen - Ersen (2008, Finders Keepers)

Ersen Dinleten, who along with Erkin Koray and Selda, recorded a form of Turkish rock known as Arabesk or Andalou Pop (a fusion of regional sounds and Western psychedelic rock and funk influences) in the 70s. This recent collection highlights the stripped down, three-piece, rock-break sound of his backup band Kardaslar which has recently created a renewed interest as a source of breaks and beats among DJs. Ersen's eclectic 40-year career has even more to offer, for those interested visit O Zamanlar here.
