Ismail Genc’s most recent offering Derivate comes on the heels of his Havantepe project where he created dubby circles in techno. This time around the Istanbulite derives new approaches from emerging musical ideas in a bid to combine them in his distinctive style.
The title of the EP comes from the locations in space where gravitational forces and the orbital configuration of an object balance each other. There are five Lagrangian Points in the Sun-Earth system numbered from L1 to L5 and of the five points, three are unstable and two are stable. L1, L2 and L3 constitute unstable equilibrium points and the tracks on this first part of Lagrangian Points EP’s are named after them.
On these four tracks you are invited to experience a dreamy techno space, filled with human emotions and shattered beats. Inspired by some dubstep elements, Derivate delivers three tracks of dub-tech-based minimal grooves and Tufan Demir’s Beto Narme strips down L2 and appends more dubstep edge to it with sharp rhythms.
