about

What remains of 90s music, if you take away all the ridiculousness? Squeaky, sticky-sweet synthesizer sounds, somewhere between Super Nintendo and Eurodance. Nervous, driving rhythms with drum samples that are currently also popular with the trap genre. Using these elements, Atlataş presents five mainly euphoric and coltish electro pop songs on his EP "Mini Albüm".

The lead singer of Munich indie rock veterans Kafkas Orient Bazaar has parted with old habits for his solo project: vocals that would be shouted or screamed in his band are now solemn with a pop vibe, intermittently supported by female vocalist Leonie. Instead of murky, mythically charged lyrics, you will find cheery sceneries. The producer, german electro-pop mastermind Norman Kolodziej (Der Tante Renate, Bratze), helped to give the songs a shiny, bright finish.

Track Name: Light And Sleek (feat. Leonie)
I want to hear the sun, sing its tender song, I want to hum along
On the brink of spring, I will stretch my wings, and I will hum along

Soft – warm – mellow, gleaming – glinting – flying

I feel light and sleek, floating up

Radiating light, the colours shining bright, I know the time is right
Track Name: Like in July (feat. Leonie)
Scared of the times we spend, like in July
Wait for this night to end, like in July
Ran out of things to say, like in July
But then we ran away, like in July

Outlines in the dark, by the fire, heating up
footprints in the dark, filled with snow, heating up

Damped, silence, moon, breathing
Glade, branches, fan, flaming
Stand, speechless, feel, burning
Breathe, feel burning
Track Name: The Final Hill
On this long road winding home – anticipating, endless nights – originating
all those promises, long ago – I never made in, restless dreams – I wish I stayed in

I'm celebrating, my return. After all this waiting, I earned it

Time stands still, on top of the hill. You're bound to stare, into the sunset
You'll lose your fear, each time you come near. You're bound to stare, into the sunset

Crossing the final hill, can make the time stand still.
if you're going the right – way

Crossing the final mark, will make the magic start.
if you're going the right – way

On this long road winding home – growing thin
the end of time – is about to begin
Track Name: Up To The Skies
You know it's hard to jump when the sea is pulling you down.
You know it's hard to be free when the air is pressing you down.
With only darkness lying ahead, you have to force yourself
not to step back. And you're gasping for a startled breath.

You will pretend to float in space, weightless, despite the wind in your face.
You will see nothing and feel nothing until you turn your eyes, up to the skies.

Up to the skies, where the future lies.

You know it's hard to leave such silence and such peace.
You know it's hard to let go of the beauty of the sea.
With only darkness lying ahead, you have to force yourself
not to stay back. And you're gasping for a weary breath.
Track Name: Asude
Hasat gelince, gölgeler ihtar
Hasat gelince

Bu tepe, bu ormandan ayrınılır
Bu gece artık son

Asude, dalgalı, denizde, dümeni tutuyorum

kabul ettim,
rüzgar, yolu açtı,
veda, kaçınılmaz,
ada, kışınlar boş, kalcak
-----
When autumn is coming, the shadows are a warning
When autumn is coming

You will leave from this hill, from this forest
This night is the last

Tranquil, in the rough sea, I am holding the oar

I have accepted it.
The wind has cleared the way.
Farewell is inevitable.
The island will stay empty in winter.
