Say hail to Ah! Kosmos – also known as Başak Günak – a great electronic music producer from İstanbul and sometimes Berlin.
Ah! Kosmos has performed at many important festivals, concerts and events including Red Bull Music Academy in Tokyo, and she has composed and created sound design for contemporary dance and plays, short-films, site-specific performances and installations in several art spaces.
She has recently released an EP named “Together We Collide“, which includes two great songs. It is not her first work, since she released her debut “Flesh” EP in 2013, winning attention of all electronic music lovers around. It was followed by “Bastards” LP two years later, published by Berlin based label Denovalli. It also appeared in our Turkish Best of 2015 list.
She has a distinct musical character, in a way dark, but not gloomy. Very powerful, but not speedy. Her music includes many loops but it’s not cliché or boring… Sometimes she plays alone on stage, sometimes a visual designer and a guitar player may join her.
When you listen “From the Land Below” from her new EP, a track recorded with the help of vocals of LAFAWNDAH and winds from Serkan Emre Çiftçi’s trumpet and flügelhorn – you will fall in a dream.
If you want to experience that kind of dreams in real life, you should go to one of her performances whether she is alone or with others on stage!
Stream “Together We Collide“ EP on Spotify.
