Some Turkish Psych flavor in Istanbul
I just got back from a job in Istanbul Turkey, which of course led to another hunt for vinyl junkies.
I wasn’t surprise to discover a whole wide world of psychedelic Turkish music, Jazz, Funk and some Arabesque (that’s the one that will make you cry even if you just won the lottery).
here is a small taste:

Benji, she’s the owner of this lovely record and book shop in Taxsim, Istanbul, introduced me into some funky Turkish tracks that made me wanna grow a mustache myself.
Thanks for that ;-)
with great help of some turkish record dealers (thank you Benji and Gokhan) I got in touch with Mustafa, who is a devoted vinyl collector of Psych, Classical and Turkish Rock music.
Also Thanks to Emekcan, from the Asian part of Istanbul, who let me into his house, and showed me his collection.
and of course, my friends from Istanbul, Aytac and Cagil, who devoted their time and energy, translated and wrote the text for the upcoming posts, and basically made this thing possible.
more details in the near future,
