Timur Selçuk - Trafik

I opened up last night's Resonance FM show with this glorious piece - a conceptual reinterpretation of a traffic jam. It's a whistle-led groove, held together by a funk bassline and victorious horn stabs, something that wouldn't have sounded out of place on Zappas' Hot Rats. Having known very little about Turkish music, this has made me want to dig a lot deeper!

Label: Balet Plak
Year: 1974
