Since recently falling in love with the Habibi Funk mixes from Jannis (Jakarta Records) we’ve been digging into some mixes of rare grooves for 60’s-80’s from North Africa and the Middle East.
Which brings me to this brilliant Turkish Funk Mix I remembered from the mighty Egon from Stones Throw put together for their podcast series (actually this is #12 and was released in 2006).
Apparently some of these records were passed on to Oh No and became the basis for the producer’s album Dr. No’s Oxperiment. You can check out the tracklist below, but as far as I’ve heard all of them are from Turkish singer Baris Manco
1) Estergon Kalesi (traditional)
2) Lambaya püf de
3) Gonul Dagi
4) Uzun Ince Bir Yoldayim (traditional by Asik Veysel)
5) Binboganin Kizi
6) Ayrilik Olmasaydi
7) Iste Hedk Iste Deve
8) Acih Da Baga Vir
9) Alnima Bir Kara Yazi
