BIO: toğrul's musical spectrum stems from a classical music education, his cultural background and his involvement with various contemporary genres. But since his first encounter with electronic sound production, the Azerbaijani and German producer has fallen into a rabbit hole of musical possibilities and timbres. Since then, he is arranging influences from different contemporary but also timeless musical currents to create his own sound image, which lives apart from genre classifications. The technical approach of tearing each of the sounds out of its context (and then re-evaluating it) leads the artist to a music that is far from listening habits. And yet the result is oriented towards simplicity, so that it never gets too complicated in its reception. Meanwhile, toğrul prefers to work in the modular environment, especially with west coast synthesis that come close to his idea of interacting organic sound design.
The project "Records Without Conception" shows toğrul's process of finding his sound. The album is not based on a concept, a statement or an overriding mood. The tracks are rather to be understood as portraits from protracted explorations of basic patterns in electronic genres and modular sound synthesis. The results are not a self-contained body of work, but rather discussions of various demands on sound and music that were experienced by the artist himself between the years 2018 and 2021. With his debut album, the German and Azerbaijan based producer wants to capture the process of this artistic searching and finding.
Surreal constructions of contrasting sounds evolve between the grids of genres. An experimental style and contemporary references across Contemporary RnB, Electro, Glitch and IDM form a sound logic of its own, which is additionally grounded by the singers Alice Dlugosch & Mariama Ceesay in two independent tracks.
