Tapan - Europa
2LP | 2017 | EU | Original (Malka Tuti)
33,99 €*
Release:2017 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
This 2XLP album, Europa, is dedicated to and inspired by events in 2015 & 2016, which saw the spectre of global crisis come knocking at Europe’s doorstep. During this time, more than a million migrants and refugees fled their homes in the Middle East, Northern Africa, sub-Saharan Africa and other conflict ravaged areas in search of a better life. For many, hopes of a future for themselves and their families lay in continental Europe. As already said about the preceding 12” single with the same name - One of the most well- trodden paths on this journey was the Balkan route, a trail leading through Turkey, Greece, and the former Yugoslavia.. This route was not without its dangers, and the dreams of thousands upon thousands were dashed by impassible security fences and discordant EU politics, as one by one they were turned away at borders, or worse, forcibly returned to their countries of origin. Europa was recorded during long jam sessions in Belgrade as the media spotlight started to dim. The city became the purgatorial destination for a large number of migrants, whose journeys had been cut short. This double LP reflects the atmosphere of disillusionment and uncertainty about the future, which descended on the Serbian capital. Dark and melancholic saxophone playing on top of heavy kicks and Mediterranean percussions dominate the epic 17 minutes title track. The collaboration with Jerusalem in My heart continues the melancholic atmosphere, adding to it JIMH signature delayed baglama sounds, to create a 12 minute emotional journey, tearing away abstract concepts of “longing” and “home” with ever growing tension and magnitude. Genre-less, illusive and not easy to categorize, Tapan’s debut album on Malka Tuti is an original soundtrack of a fragment in time and space, capturing a moment and transcending it musically for the rest of the world to experience. Silkscreen print - 180gr Vinyl - Sticker - Insert.
Tapan - The City
The City
12" | 2016 | EU | Original (WT Records)
12,99 €*
Release:2016 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
TAPAN is a duo from Belgrade. Title track, “The City”, takes few minutes to get going, but when it does… its like a James Chance/no wave saxophone on some kind of funky slo mo euro techno. The other 3 tracks drift in and out like some kind of night time fog on a glassy lake with live instruments/percussion peeping out from the hills. For deep and moody waistoids and freaks only.
Tapan - Volumes
12" | 2015 | UK | Original (Crimes Of The Future)
10,99 €*
Release:2015 / UK – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Tapan are from Belgrade, hosts to Disco not disco and now delivering two slow psychedelic techno bomb's to crimes of the future's letterbox. We first met Nebjosa and the crew when we played at Drug Store in Belgrade for them in early 2014. Upon receiving these we knew they had crimes written all over them. On Volumes we have two very special remixes of an already heavy original starting with Willie Burns taking them into the streets of Manchester in the early 90's and spending a night on at the Hacienda with no thought of the gentrification approaching. Drvcvltvre is the second provider and in true style switches out the lights and a spectre looms over the dancefloor dripping acid on the dancers below. The EP closes with Who's there? featuring the brain melting guitars of Vladimir Djordjevic. Quite a debut we think.
