RIYL: Grouper, Julianna Barwick,
Label: The Helen Scarsdale Agency
Istanbul ambient and electronic artist¬†Ekin √úzelt√ľzenci, otherwise known as Eken Fil in the studio, has an ability to create soundscapes that feel both weightless and endless. ¬†Similar to Julianna Barwick’s acapella arrangements submerged in reverb or Liz Harris’ otherworldly atmospheres¬†in¬†Grouper, Eken Fil’s cavernous production is nothing short of mesmerizing. ¬†Organ drones, field recordings and Ekin’s hauntingly beautiful vocals blend flawlessly here, and are a perfect addition to the evergrowing ambient section on your vinyl shelves. ¬†You just can’t have enough of this stuff, can ¬†you?
