7 for 7: #6 Edip Akbayram & Dolstar – Daglar Dagladi Beni


Edip Akbayram & Dolstar – Daglar Dagladi Beni

With all of the craziness that just went down in Turkey yesterday, perhaps it’s fitting that I’d planned of remarking on this track, my sixth favorite thing I’ve shared on Melting Pot since we began in 2009. As I’ve mentioned previously, this song was put on my radar by a youtube video promising, “Crazy Turkish Heavy Psych Funk Breaks.” The poster was selling the 45 on Ebay at the time and was trying to guard their find (even dismantling comments on the video) and likely keep the price as high as possible. I’m not a fan of unsolved mysteries and so after several hours of “digital digging” I was able to end the mystery and make sure I had a copy of this 45 on it’s way to me. My copy isn’t pristine, but I actually like that the 45 is cracked and fuzzy, it gives the song an extra kind of power, that only a well worn piece of vinyl can have. Still hoping that this ends up in Quentin Tarantino film one day, it’s tailor made for the beginning of a training/fight sequence. The song IS used to great effect early on in the anniversary mix that DJ Frane made for us, setting the table for everything that follows. Proof positive that the internet ain’t half bad at all.
