At the heart of ‘The Sun Is Parallel’, is the hotly anticipated debut album from Swiss-Turkish musician Mehmet Aslan, is a devotion to records and alternative musical cultures spanning decades and continents. With diverse tempos and styles, from frazzled electronics for open-minded dance-floors to cinematic instrumental passages, the album finds a devoted producer at his most considered and sensitive; all made with squinting eyes looking up at the sun, with the grooves soaked in its omnipotent glare.
Driven by questions related to the fluidity of his own identity, community and migration, as well as the unusual stretch of time the past years have provided to investigate oneself, ‘The Sun Is Parallel’ is informed by movements from Sun Ra to hauntology.
There is lots to enjoy, including the fervent acid funk of ‘Rowndbass Acid’ releases the endorphins associated with Aslan’s many hours stood in the DJ booth.
Release Date – 11/11/22
