Going through a unusual amount of music the last week, I came across this magnificent upbeat - raise your spirits kind of tune. In the life of a music spotter, coming across a track like this is one of the better ways to start the week.
Murat Kilic is of Turkish decent, though hails from Sydney, Australia. He is your textbook renaissance man. Maintaining a successful career as a producer and DJ, while traveling the world playing notable nightclubs including Watergate Berlin, The Electric Pickle Miami, The End in London and Burning Man. The Australian does this, and continues to run Reckless Republic, a touring agency, event promoting and record label back in Sydney.
Last month Kilic released "Shooting Stars" on Belin based label Off Recordings. With it's uplifting vocals, and alimentative deep funky disco vibe, "Shooting Stars" becomes more enriching with each listen. Also included is Kilic's podcast for Stil vor Talent, a free download. Hopefully we'll be hearing some new treats from this rising talent soon, though another visit to The Electric Pickle would be just as splendid.
