Sabo’s imprint Sol Selectas closes out 2021 with a stunning three-track release from label favourites Derun who are known globally for their tribal rhythms and enchanting melodies.

Derun are a duo from Istanbul, Turkey who in addition to their music on Sol Selectas, have released tracks and remixes on other labels including Bar 25 Music, Cosmic Awakenings, Pipe & Pochet and Akbal Music.

Taking influence from their local heritage, Derun’s music has vibrant rhythms and middle eastern melodies that fuse modern day electronic sound with traditional instruments.

All three of the organic house tracks are true to the trademark Sol Selectas style, and the release has been lovingly curated by Sabo.

“La Sombra del Viento” which translates to “The Shadow of the Wind” has mesmerising vocals and flamenco style guitar layered over the flowing rhythms of sequenced percussion. The track’s concept is to be an expression of our lifetime experiences. Flowing through the winds of time, along the way we leave behind little pieces of ourselves, and our shadows mark the trail of which those shards are scattered.

Track two “Ven Hermosa” translates to “Come Beautiful One” and its Arabic flutes intertwine with violins and dramatic percussion that tells a quirky love story. Based on the concept of a woman who’s being courted by two men that both promise exquisite wedding gifts if she accepts their marriage proposal. The music builds with a vigorous energy as the men try to outdo one another, but then ends abruptly, as eventually she laughs, and decides to reject them both.

Closing the EP is “Descalzo” which translates to “Barefoot” and it’s a collaboration with ARKADYAN. Sombre trumpets swing through the nimble guitar chords that dance and intermingle with the congas and other percussive textures. Strongly influenced by flamenco, it’s a modern take on a classic kind of dance music.

The artwork by Helia Jamali personifies the shadow of the wind into a magnificent wild horse, running through the universe and around the Sun.
