Improvement in recording, better sound quality, huge development of the distribution sector…..and artistic directors who still work with a concern of artistic quality, and it is true everywhere, even in Turkey.
Baris Manco was the first turkish artist I discovered from the 70’s….What a dude!!!(Thanks to Mert)
Since then i naturally started to dig a bit deeper and what I found bring me to this mixtape.
A pure selection of Funk-Folk-psyche-groovy turkish music.

The use of sound to evoke emotion, reflect mood and underscore actions in plays and dances began in prehistoric times.
At its earliest, it was used in religious practices for healing or just for fun.
Melchior is offering his musical consultancies for high level boutiques, Hotels, restaurants and also sound design for fashion shows.
Sound design is the process of specifying, acquiring, manipulating or generating audio elements. It involves the manipulation of previously composed or recorded audio, such as music and sound effects. In some instances it may also involve the composition or manipulation of audio to create a desired effect or mood.
