new EP miXendorp

Today we released:

B&T 994 – miXendorp – Xperimental Trance Electro Blues EP

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.

Spotify (released tracks)

new EP Bone Union Records

today we released

BUR 1114 – Sar Keskiner & Tayfun Bilgin – Punta Strut

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.

The music is released digital and available on all the download and streaming platforms.

review miXendorp from the UK

miXendorp – Alogna

miXendorp describe this as “experimental trance electro blues” and I can’t do much better than that.

With roots deep in the traditional sound, and a willingness to innovate, these two guys really do like to push the boundaries, as here.

The Dutch outfit marries plenty of electronics with some biting blues guitar work, throwing in also some seriously mangled vocals (Boo Boo Davis, I think, but I could be wrong) for almost five and a half minutes – give it time. Yes, it’s different, it’s not everyone’s cup of tea, granted, but if you’re at all interested, do try to give it a listen. Just don’t expect a ‘Dust My Broom’ or ‘Rock Me Baby’.

new single miXendorp

You can find loads of miXendorp music at:

new single miXendorp

today Black and Tan Records released

B&T 990 – miXendorp – Alogna

It has been quit for while but here is a new original track from miXendorp.

We would describe the new track as xperimental trance electro blues“.

But since talking about music doesn’t make much sense I suggest you just listen and enjoy.

Expect no ‚music for the millions’ but an original and eclectic mix of blues with jazz, world, funk, techno and all kind of other great music with a beat.

Over the years miXendorp released lots of music and did live sets at / in.

  • FUSION FESTIVAL (Germany)
  • SZIGET (Hungary)
  • NORTH SEA JAZZFESTIVAL (Holland)
  • DRANOUTER (Belgium)
  • COGNAC BLUES PASSIONS (France).
  • clubs in Sweden, Denmark, Belgium, Holland, Switzerland, Germany, France, Turkey and Italy.

A few quotes from the press:

  • DOWNBEAT (USA): Without debasing or trivializing tradition, loops and beats explode with kinetic rhythmic energy
  • SOUL M8 (UK): This is raw creative energy
  • MOJO (UK): The intrinsic down-home qualities of the source material jostle intriguingly with the superimposed urban beats.

This single is released digital only and available on all the download and streaming platforms.

review from Hungary

Koncertfelvétel a kultikus török zenekartól

A török Istanbul Blues Kumpanyası-t Sarp Keskiner és Salih Nazim Peker alapította 1993-ban, olyan hatvanas évek eleji formációk mintájára, mint a John Mayall & the Bluesbreakers és az Alexis Korner Blues Incorporated. Az együttes felállása folyamatosan változott, kísérleti terepet biztosított a korszak szinte minden isztambuli zenészének, akiket valamilyen módon kapcsolatba lehetett hozni a blueszal, gospellel, jazz-zel vagy a szabad improvizációs zenével. Fennállásuk alatt két lemezt készítettek: a Kökler 1996-ban került kiadásra, míg a Sair Zamanlart 1999-ben, mielőtt utolsó turnéjukra indultak volna. A nemzeti színtéren kultikus státusznak örvendő zenekar 2000-ben oszlott fel. A Bone Union Recordsnak köszönhetően március közepén napvilágot látott az együttes 1997-ben az Efes Pilsen Blues Fesztiválon adott koncertje. A digitális formátumban megjelent, Live at Efes Pilsen Blues Festival 1997 című EP történelmi hangdokumentum, egy olyan fiatal, lelkes zenészekből álló bandát mutat be, akik őszintén szerelmesek a fekete zenei elemekbe, miközben élettel teli húszas éveikben járnak.

review from Turkey

İSTANBUL BLUES KUMPANYASI – ‘LİVE AT EFES PİLSEN BLUES FESTİVAL 1997’ (BONE UNİON RECORDS)

İstanbul Blues Kumpanyası, 1997 yılında 8. Efes Pilsen Blues Festivali’ne davet edildiğinde ilk albümleri “Kökler”i henüz çıkarmıştı. Ekip albümdekinden biraz farklıydı; Sarp Keskiner’in Tuzlu Nehir projesinde yer alan müzisyenler ile İBK kadrosundan seçilmiş altı kişilik bir kadro sahneye çıkmıştı. Hilton İstanbul Convention Center’da çaldıklarında masanın başında StarAs’ın İngiliz çalışanı, Sarp’ın isteği üzerine eline tutuşturulan dat’a -gündüz ve gece- iki seti de kaydetmişti. Yıllardır Sarp’ın çekmecesinde duran kayıtların şimdi bir kısmı dijital platformlarda.

23 dakika süren beş parçalık EP’deki (kısaçalar) kayıtlar, sadece mastering aşamasında minik dokunuşlarla yayımlanmış. Orijinallerine çok yakın hatta aynısı olduğundan zamanın ruhunu, atmosferini iyi yansıtıyor. Konserin ardından topluluk içinde dil ve müzikal tercihler konusunda tartışma başlamış, direksiyon farklı rotaya kırılmış, sonucunda üretken bir sürece girilmişti. Dile kolay çeyrek asır olmuş. Bu tarihi belge, yirmili yaşların keyfini süren tutkulu takıntılı müzik çetesini daha iyi anlamamıza vesile.

Sarp’ın kurtarılmayı bekleyen harici harddisc’inde daha çok İBK kaydı var. Derli toplu bir mecrada, düzen içinde yayımlanması dileğiyle…
