Founded by Safak Öz Kütle, Oceanvs Orientalis is a formation which aims to challenge the aesthetic perception in electronic music.
It blends itself with the archeologic tunes of mankind’s cumulative musical history and in this very context believes that “everything comes from the east”.
Despite of being an electronic-based formation -due to practical reasons- at the moment, it intends to transform into a dance (to move the body and feet to music) orchestra where each instrument will be played by its own instrumentalist.
Netam draws attention with his extraordinary arrangements which embrace the ever-changing and evolving structure of music.
He produces intergenre music that blends organic instruments and synthesizers with recorded/captured sounds from daily life. He stands out with his ability to use Anatolian elements in an innovative way.
Producer, keyboardist and architect Netam has been producing music since 2015. He started his professional music career in 2019 with his first release "Consensus EP" (Kanto Records). He collaborated with vocalist "Damla Temel", guitarist "Semih Düz" and bass player "Batuhan Camcı" during the EP. The collaborations on this album has formed the band "Yalnayak".
As an Istanbul based artist, Netam experimented on an inter-genre music which blends Anatolian elements with electro-funky grooves in an ambient, emotional way.
He followed this path on a concept album "Yabani" (Kanto Records,2020) which is full of experimental recordings from daily life. Jemi
Ikaru is a musical duo that was born out of a pure desire of identification with the expanded consciousness of the expressive qualities.
Originated in Ankara; Ikaru gets its main inspiration from the timeless and placeless resorts of human culture, intertwined both with beats and notes of antiquity as well as the mind-bending bleeps of synth-scapes.
Ikaru’s journey initiated in 2016 as a quintet jamming in the home. Their first tracks were formed of different musical roots meeting together at a common basin, which incorporated live jamming, employing live instrumentation with drum machines and computers. They started to perform in local scenes with raw-psychedelic dub sounds. Over time, the band evolved into an electronic duo and their sound matured into a more refined form while retaining its connection to the first played melodies of the story. Jemi
Emin Gök is a musician, artist and psychologist who aims to archive and reflect on the many facets of human condition, through mostly but not exclusively, sound. His work carries with it a sort of ‘in-your-face’ sensuality and a primitive, intuitive movement while at the same time being reflective on its traditions and identity. Finding the academic environment sterile and overly bureaucratic, he abandoned a lucrative career in psychology for the freedom of artistic expression and the intimacy of communication achieved through sound.
