Recently the guys of Bacon Fat Louissend a few tracks to miXendorpand asked him to do his magic to them. So far he finished two tracks and the first one will be released on Black and Tan Records on February 5, 2023.
To describe Bacon Fat Louis:
When you go to the pawn shop to buy the most shitty blender they have and you put in some RL Burnside, a slice of the Legendary ShackShakers, some parts of Bob Log’s helmet, a few pieces of T-model Ford and a little bit of of Left Lane Cruiser then start mixing this at full speed, you will have an idea.
The band, existing for almost ten years, has now definitely found their own way! No complicated bullshit just some hot steaming no-nonsense boogie with a little taste of that fine voodoo garage-sound and always keeping the Blues as the foundation.
A few months ago miXendorp started to write and record new music. He calls it ‘xperimental trance electro blues’; an original and eclectic mix of blues, jazz, world, funk, techno and all kind of other great music with a beat. But as Steve Martin said: “Talking about music is like dancing about architecture”. So I suggest you just listen and make your own judgement.
During the past few months we already put out three singles and today we released this EP with another four new instrumental trax. The new EP is released digital and available on all download and streaming platforms.
miXendorp is pretty productive and we expect more new music from him early 2023.
An outcome of a one-shot home recording session designed by Bilgin and Keskiner (both Anglophiles with a deep respect in Mod culture); this EP truly captures the claustrophobic atmosphere of a metropolitan where nobody on the scene in Izmir, Turkey in mid-2010’s tends to give away a dime for any attempt that blends blues and roots reggae with a slight touch of Jerry Garcia (of Grateful Dead).
Take both tracks as a sample of a wide hearted trial; while swiftly riding away on your scooter…
Recorded and mixed by Tayfun Bilgin (2014 / Izmir, Turkey.

ElectroBluesSociety is an experimental electro blues duo. Two guys and a bunch of junk with a broad taste and an open mind mixing the old with the new. Modern technologies combined with 30+ years of live stage experience in the European blues / roots music scene.
Now enjoying a cult status on the national scene, Istanbul Blues Kumpanyasi 1 was founded by Sarp Keskiner and Salih Nazim Peker in 1993, modeled on early 60’s collectives namely as Blues Inc. and John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers (UK) with promoting ever changing line ups, up to who was available for live occasions.
As a wayward collective, the “Company” supplied an experimental ground for nearly every musician of the era based in Istanbul, who were in a way associated with traditional blues, gospel, jazz and free improvisational music and this audio document features the band’s last line up; before they dive deep into Turkish underground psyche extravaganza in 1998.
Besides all, Istanbul Blues Kumpanyasi was the ever and last band booked to perform on phenomenal Efes Pilsen Blues Festival, sharing the bill with legendary names like Nappy Brown and Eddie Kirkland in 1997. Even today, many blues purists and musicians in Turkey who were a part of the audience then, now salute the band’s hyperactive performance and the inspiration they gave, while encouraging many names to take an excursion to dive deep into depths of unknown chapters of blues genres.
Recorded directly to DAT at Hilton İstanbul Convention Center for his personal favor by the technical director of the festival; this historical audio document features a gang of young enthusiastic musicians, sincerely in love with black music elements while enjoying their lively twenties.
The EP is released digital and available on all the download and streaming platforms.
