Derdiyoklar Ikilisi “Disko Folk” Guerssen Records
When it comes to bizarre and out of this world records, this reissue takes the prize for most extreme in that area for anything we have been getting in from the labels this year. Derdiyoklar Ikilisi are examined with their third full length Disko Folk on Guerssen Records. The first time seeing the light of day outside of Europe since it was first issued, this album collects really wild electro-folk psyche music at the hands of some of the oddest instruments I have ever heard of.
Much like Selda and other fusion musicians in Turkey, Derdiyoklar Ikilisi as undefinable and their recording career was very short lived because of it. Derdiyoklar Ikilisi shapes itself into a really synth derivative without a lot of the fuzz guitar and strident vocals Selda was known for. Derdiyoklar Ikilisi’s world is most commonly known as Anadolu pop and remains one of the oddest creations in the wavering cultural revolution in sound that swept this globe in the 60′s and 70′s.
Recorded in the end of the 70′s, the cover for Disko Folk alone lets you know what type of ride you are in for. The album is pressed in a limited edition of 500 copies and serves as the next chapter into Turkey’s experimental music scene that is still for the most part hidden in albums waiting to be reissued and brought back to the surface.

Anadolu Pop doesn’t get weirder than this! Back in 1979, two Turkish guys armed with electro- saz, guitar, drums and synthetizers were hitting the Turkish market in Germany where they lived, playing their sets of traditional flavoured electro- folk in weddings and circumcision feasts for Turkish emigrants in Germany. That crazy is the story, that crazy is their sound!!! - Guerssen Recodings
