Türküm explores the dark side of passion in his newest release “Feel My Love”, a powerful blend of warped vocals and cinematic production skills that exudes emotional catharsis. Haunting piano chords and disembodied vocals set the stage for the journey, then are joined by powerful percussion and cinematic synths that elevate the track to a larger-than-life level. At its peak, “Feel My Love” erupts into heavy, rolling basslines and metallic synths as Türküm unleashes his aggression, and it’s one that you’ll feel in your very bones. The dark and prodigious quality of “Feel My Love” stems from the situation under which it was written, which just happened to be at a Starbucks. “I wrote this song when I first arrived in Den Haag. The Idea started in Starbucks and I sat down for like 10 hours just working on it. This happened after I was told I couldn’t play at the club which I was supposed to in the Netherlands. I was very sad when I heard the news and felt betrayed but as time passed I just motivated myself to look up and work,” he says. “Feel My Love” just has been released on Türküm’s label Divine Mercy.
Turkish indie artist Türküm may be a relative newcomer, but he’s quickly established a commendable reputation based on the quality and production style. Though he has kept his branding and imagery minimalist and enigmatic, his atmospheric and often dark and ominous sound on tracks such as his most recent “Dreams” have proved to impress both fans and tastemakers from a myriad of genres. Türküm’s music has been signed to Elysian Records and Lowly Palace and frequents some of Spotify’s biggest playlists, including Mint, Trap Mojitos, Fresh Electronic and the infamous Beast Mode.
