PORTECHO – BIO

Tan Tuncag and Deniz Cuylan got together in 2005 to form Portecho, Turkey’s hippest act and a „fast rising band“ with a „radiant future“ as The New York Times points out. The duo signed to Elec-Trip Records and recorded both their debut, „Undertone“ and their second album, „Studio Plastico“, with producer and music director Oguz Kaplangi.

In the second album, Portecho have maintained their unique voice while introducing variations into the rhythms they are known to use. The tracks do have a touch of the 80’s but the artists have generally refrained from sticking with a single period in music as their reference. The rhythms borrow from r&b, breakdance or breakbeat and the melodies in this album are mostly of the major kind. “Studio Plastico” is a record with character that will put a smile on your face whether you are on the dance floor or just quietly listening to the album in the privacy of your home.
