"Yak EP"
Release Date: 18 Aug 2008

Evirgen a.k.a. Hüseyin Evirgen was born in Istanbul, Turkey, but now lives in Vienna, Austria, where you will often him find him either DJing or performing his live sets. His study of composition and electro-acoustic music at the University of Istanbul and Mozarteum in Salzburg have left him in good stead for his creation of subtle compositions and driving flow, giving you both shakey leg on the the dance-floor and noddy head in the living room. His precisely programmed tracks tell of his insight into the functionality of music and the syntax of sounds.

"Yak2 is a solid, percussive track with floaty and at times biting atmospherics, vocal snatches and infectious skippy groove. The intricate arrangement and funky as hell bass line make this hairy animal a dance-floor winner.

"Armadillo" is, as you might expect, crunchy on the outside and smooth and warm in the middle.

The Taylan remix is an insight into a man obsessed with sound. This version is the fourth version submitted. Each one was superb, but there was nothing that could be done to stop him tearing it up and starting again. The mind-boggling final result embodies that passion for perfection, cutting-edge sound design and big fuck-off speakers. I can’t get enough of the alien sounding female vocal sound in it.

"Aardvark" is moody and spacious. Its characterized by an extremely low double bass sound, huge yet invisible reverbs and samples from a dead dictator’s speech.

The bonux track "Ixban" is a lovely deep track and a great way to finish off this massive EP.


Written and Produced by Hüseyin Evirgen
Additional Production on Track 2 by Taylan Yilmaz
