DISCO HAMAM

Hotter than a midsummer Piccadilly, Disco Hamam deliver their 4th serving of Turkish & oriental killer disco edits, featuring the deep digging expertise of Tokyo Matt and Afacan Soundsystem. Showing up any obvious editors out there, Tokyo Matt kicks off the A-side with the majestic "A Fistful Of Dollars", a sample heavy splice of one propulsive synth disco smash, and a delicate Turkish acoustic number. Perfectly balanced, the track rages into the sunset, blazing guitar licks and overdriven vocals leaving trails across the sky. On the A2, "Tales Of The Orientale" is big winner for the Balearic dance floor, giving us coastal groove and psychedelic attitude as Matt works his magic on a Turkish-tinged slice of Italian pop. Flip the pancake to feel the force of the Afacan Soundsystem, who knock us dead with two totally different takes on the Anatolian sound. Awash with organic instrumentation and tumbling percussion, the cinematic "Ya Sabir Disco" is your more traditional Anatolian edit, nicely spiced with those mystical tonalities. "Biz Salkimiz" on the other hand is a cosmic boogie killer of the highest order, bouncing through slick bass work, wah guitar and funked up clav until those deeply dramatic vocals drops. Chuck in some Spaghetti Western whistling and you'll be wondering why this wasn't called "A Fistful Of Dollars". Before we hit the run out there's just enough time to luxuriate in the symphonic sweetness of Afacan Soundsystem's Turkish AOR bonus "Az Disco", a fitting end to a fine record.


STAFF COMMENTS

Patrick says: The Disco Hamam copysheet remains unblemished here as Tokyo Matt and Afacan Soundsystem bring the goods all over again. Eastern spiced goodness from start to finish here, but I'm gonna pick out "A Fistful Of Dollars" and "Biz Salkimiz" as the ones to watch/hear...
