first listen :: Sarp Yilmaz - 'Pretty Girls Make Graves' (Digital Bonus)

One of Istanbul's finest DJ / Producers, Sarp Yilmaz, is set to release his upcoming EP — Disintegration through Dublin based record label, Swink Music. On July 15th, the album will be available in both vinyl and digital formats, but in the meantime you can stream snippets of the entire EP over here. Sarp has been making deep underground sounds for sometime now and has been charted in the top ranks of several accredited music lists around the globe. His nature and style of sound falls in the pockets of deep underground house music that signal kickback body-lifting grooves, pondering on classic soul-felt vocal arrangements.

One of the first times I heard Mr. Yilmaz's sound was through Life Crushed, Generic People, The Leaving Scene, and The Soul Electronic's epic compilation, The People / The Scene / The Life / The Soul. Sarp Yilmaz's featured tune, 'Disco Inferno', is one that is difficult to forget with its infectiously feel-good vibrations, that transport the listener back to the old school dance era of disco. When it comes to his most recent release, the listener is still granted tracks that are both club-ready and bedroom oriented, displaying a sense of consistency. Swink Music was kind enough to let us give out an exclusive download from the Disintegration EP digital release, which contains the digital bonus, 'Pretty Girls Make Graves'.

Clocking in at almost seven and a half minutes, 'Pretty Girls Make Graves', gradually layers in simple and lush samples that rock back and forth in a hypnotizing dance pattern. Each phrase of the track links on to its previous musical loop, marinating a rhythm and obscuring a voice sample that slowly gets clearer as the song progresses. Sarp's usage of sporadic classical jazz tones, opens up his numbers to limitless expectation and experimentation. Indulge your ear drums. Download and listen to the tune exclusively below...
