DOWNLOAD: AHU – SUNSPLASH FESTIVAL MIX
Usually I don’t have to cruise the net to find interesting music topics to keep y’all posted. But once in a while I get curious. This time my curiosity paid off and I can now present an electronic mix comprised of killer tracks by up and coming Turkish DJ Ahu. The compilation serves as a taster for the upcoming Sunsplash Festival in Antalya, Turkey. It’s the first one in a series of mixes you can take peek at on the Sunsplash Festival blog.
This particular Sunsplash Festival mix works like it’s suppose to because it gives me the urge to catch a plane … so can be where the action is from 22nd till the 29nd of May 2011.

Amazing video, Amazing voice, amazing producer!
Long tipped as a vocalist to watch, Ahu steps softly from the shadows of her lauded guest appearances to deliver To:Love.
It’s a captivating performance from the Turkish singer whose unique style might be found somewhere between traditional soul and the studied remove of the likes of Broadcast’s Trish Keenan. If there’s poignancy in her delivery, there is hope in the lyrics: it’s a song about the calm and freedom felt by lovers after they split. Her long-time friend and musical ally Paul White provides the subtle, ever-shifting backdrop, a nuanced electronic counterpoint to the more organic psychedelia of his recent …and the Purple Brain LP.
