Real journey starts when you move away from the places that you are familiar with.
If you have been fed a strong musical culture, and if you are creative enough to fusion these roots with many great ideas and modern ways of expression while creating your own pieces, this process results (probably) in a great song. This is how I felt and thought when I first listened to “Düş Oldum” (I became a dream) by Suat Armağan.
You will find great marks of Alevi/Bektashi folk tunes and forms in “Düş Oldum” (both in a melodic and lyrical way) very well harmonized with strong guitar patterns inside a loopy rhythmic texture. If those guitars are not enough for you to get the sense of the song, you will also hear characteristic snare touches, impossible not to recognize, between strings, synths, and effects.
It is always hard to describe a song, I recommend you to experience it yourself:
“Düş Oldum” was written, composed, and produced by Suat Armağan. We hear his voice, guitars, and keys on the record. On the very characteristic drums, we have Barış Ergenekon. The song was mixed by Barış Ergün and mastered by Cem Büyükuzun. The cover photo was taken by Nazlı Erdemirel and the video is directed by Selin Gömüç.
A real journey starts when you move away from the places that you are familiar with. For me, here you have a good chance to make a different musical journey, and I wonder how you will feel after you taste it.
