Survival Research


Survival Research presents a reissue of Erkin Koray‘s, “2”, originally released in 1976.

Pioneer Erkin Koray may have been the first Turkish rock artist, he and his band reputedly playing Fats Domino and Elvis covers in 1957, by combining rock ‘n’ roll and Turkish traditional music, he spearheaded Anatolian rock and became the leading Turkish psychedelic practitioner. East-west hybrid Elektronik Turkuler was an innovative concept album marrying rock with Turkish trad, in contrast, the 1976 release 2 is thoroughly grounded in Turkish traditional music, the understated delivery holding just a touch of psychedelia and a proto-disco undercurrent in the mix, as heard on tracks like Estarabim, Arap Saçi and Timbilli.
