It describes a tragic journey into a fictional depiction of Konya – a raucous and hostile Anatolian city torn apart by mysticism and conservatism.

The EP explores a landscape of Detroit electro vibrations and dodgy murmurs whilst offering gracious melodic digressions along the way.

After the album ‘Peur’ and the EP ‘Hedge Fund’ released in 2012, Gohan comes back with a new imaginary soundtrack on the edge of violence and grace, exploiting harmonic and texture flaws, enigmatic collages and a grinding bassline.
