BaBa ZuLa, Istanbul’s revered psychedelic explorers, are celebrating their 20th anniversary. To help with these celebrations, Glitterbeat is releasing XX, a kaleidoscopic, career-spanning compilation. BaBa ZuLa create a sound they call “Istanbul psychedelia,” a sonic vision that ventures into dub, Turkish psych-rock from the 60’s and 70’s, Anatolian folk music, Krautrock and the experimental beyond. This 2-disc compilation (including a CD of dub mixes) features an incredible array of like-minded collaborators, including: Mad Professor, Sly & Robbie, Alexander Hacke (Einstüerzende Neubauten), Dr. Das (Asian Dub Foundation) and Dirtmusic. XX documents the full-sweep of the band's music by focusing on only unreleased material and inspired alternative mixes.
