The ‘Indigo ‘EP is named after and inspired by The Club Indigo in Istanbul which Alican has run managed and DJ’ed at for the last 5 years and has been the scene of the development and experimentation of his sound.
The ‘Indigo ‘EP is Techno Electronic , conjuring mental images of desolate landscapes in one moment and
beauty in urban claustrophobia in the next. Driving beats in one instant ,shrouded by subtle sketches of unrecognisable sounds , veering into melancholic moodiness in the next. Tunes made with precision and love.
