Objects Limited is excited to announce a second EP with Turkish artist Jtamul whom we introduced in 2019 with the striking ‘Lubuni’ which explored queer linguistic culture local to Istanbul. This EP ‘Paramparça’ keeps true to Turkish club culture: “I love how Turkish club tracks have lots of various styles of out-of-sync drumming piled upon the pop tracks. I wanted to take some elements from that kind of approach without losing the playful sensibility. I used various materials to build up this idea: free imitated FM drums, breakbeat drum kits and Turkish pop acapellas.” Jtamul continues “I was trying to have a dorky type of sense when I was making ‘TTTxut’ and offered one of my closest friends do0gi to rap on it and so he gave a fierce vibe to the whole song.”
‘Bigudi’ is the name of the only queer club in Istanbul and a place for Jtamul and their friends to express their take on club music in a land fixed between the East and the West with a repressive government. These tracks are a beautiful insight into an underground scene filled with hope, love and friendship.
