ISLANDMAN, the Istanbul based trio of multi-instrumentalists led by producer Tolga Böyük already impressed Turn Up The Volume a couple of weeks ago with their trippy
lead single Lamani from their upcoming second LP. And the band continues to spoil
our hungry ears with another notable cut from the album.

‘DIMITRO’ is a traditional wedding song says Böyük and adds: “I wanted to combine it with 808 drums and bass to make it a slow motion dance track keeping the vocals raw and ritualistic feeling, I think the track gives a mood of a big circle of people holding hands and dancing like a modern folklore dance tribe.”

Seducing, exotic, harmonious and kaleidoscopic.

10 May 2019


Who: “Born from the musical dreams of Tolga Böyük, Islandman represents a fictional character, a musical persona, a dreamer composing the stories of a non-existent place.
What began as a solo project has now blossomed into a trio of friends with Eralp Güven
on percussion and Erdem Başer on the guitar.”

Track: LAMANI – the first single of upcoming second LP titled ‘Kaybola’, which means
to get lost to find a new way. The record is chock full of ethno-cultural material from Japan
to Bulgaria, including field recordings of Tuva, Central Asia throat singers.

Score: Lamani‘ sounds like the ideal soundtrack for all of you out there who dream frequently about traveling around the world. It’s vibey, bouncy, hypnotic, spaced-out
and its irresistibly magnetizing groove makes you want to go out, spread your wings
and just fly away. This is spellbinding music without frontiers. This is an intriguing sonic exploration. This trippy jam will resonate in your head for a while after only one spin.
