Repressed! Stunning new music from Istanbul! Wild baglama improvisation and mystical male-unison singing, atop the propulsive mass of a Berlin half-stepper, with turbulent detours into dub, radiophonics, and psychedelia. "Kime Ne" means "so what," "what's it got to do with you." The song adapts verses from the seventeenth-century poet Kul Nesîmî, wistfully invoking the Melami strain of Sufism as a touchstone of humility and tolerance in dark times. "Insanlar" means "humankind"... "The Human Beings." RV's mixes are expert, taut and hard-grooving. "2" is the more agitated and dubwise. Side D is etched with Katharina Immekus's lovely artwork.
