Silicon Soul at Kiki Ortaköy
Kiki Ortaköy hosts Silicon Soul tonight. Since first appearing on Slam’s mighty Soma Records in 1998, DJ-production duo Craig Morrison and Graeme Reedie, aka Silicone Soul, have occupied a special place in the overcrowded field of electronic dance music, mainly through the depth and quality of their recordings, plus their innate understanding of music‘s grand heritage and its constant development.
Silicone Soul is the perfect name to describe the way they cajole then sculpt every sonic ingredient from their machines with maximum care and emotion. They’ve always turned their heads away from vacuous trends to follow their passion and instincts, famously turning down “Top of the Pops” for their 2001 top ten hit “Right On” but happy in the knowledge that every single they release kicks off in underground clubs. Over the course of four albums, the pair has turned the often tricky task of making a substantial electronic dance album into an art form, partly by remembering what made lasting classic albums in the first place.
Address: Osmanzade Sokak, No: 8, Ortaköy, ISTANBUL
