Artist: Tolga Fidan
B1: Hord (Convextion Remix)
Rather like dub techno, minimal has a similar cross to bear. Seen by many as a very enclosed, nerdy scene which has somehow conned the listener into believing it is more than the sum of its parts, it by and large preaches to the converted. However, on his first release for Vakant for quite some time, Tolga Fidan sings from a slightly different song sheet, and, on the strength of this release, knows how to strike a chord with the dance floor. Both ‘Lone’ and ‘Sib’ are funk filled pile drivers with their own fair share of wonky, off-kilter noises filling the gaps. ‘Hord’ is a bit jerky in comparison, but its remix, courtesy of Convextion, is a thing of stellar electro beauty. You wouldn’t expect anything else though, would you?
