Over the last 20 years Elektro Hafiz has been carving out a reputation as a musician not bound by rules. Opting for stark contrasts and at times contradicting styles, his compositions feel fresh, pushing boundaries that others fear to cross — it’s a sound he’s coined as “Turkish Elektro Baglama Power”.
Today we premiere the official video for ‘Lübodisko’, a fusion of Anatolian rock and psychedelia, taken from Hafiz’s second album Saz Power, released on Ironhand. The video, directed by artist Gizem Güvendağ, is symbolic of being in limbo, the character’s dancing acting as a medium to express freedom and rebel against oppression and torment.
