When it comes to exotic, off-kilter edits, you’ll struggle to find a stronger series than Jonny Rock’s Disco Hamam.
This fifth volume is every bit as essential as its predecessors.
Beards In Dust claims the A-side with “At The Dawn”, a tidy revision of a druggy and “chuggy” version of a
blue-eyed psychedelic funk-rock roller that comes complete with some serious sing-along sections.
The heady world of Turkish music – a constant source of inspiration at the Disco Hamam HQ – comes to the fore on the B-side.
Tales Of Voodoo’s “Sharky” is a deliciously percussive, dancefloor-friendly fusion of Middle Eastern exoticism,
funk-rock guitars and heavy disco percussion, while Esen Gunduz’s “Deve Gucu” is an even sweatier,
Italo Disco-era stomper that sounds like something you’d have heard in Istanbul clubs circa 1985.
