Selda rocks! Mos Def

Back with a HOT NEW 7 O Clock Sample. I was listneing to the new MOS DEF album with my buddy Jonathan and I thought, ” WHAT IS THAT SAMPLE?!?”.
After some research and digging I found the source for Mos Def’s high energy track SUPERMAGIC!

Oooh we that’s a funky jam! That screaming guitar comes from a very unexpected source.
Turkish political activist and folk singer SELDA! Selda Bağcan was a famous folk singer in the 1970s. Her protest style and leftist, socialist political views both in lyrical and activist means brought her a great support from the public yet caused many troubles with the military and governmental authorities. Selda Bağcan’s lyrics demonstrate a political struggle as well as the problems and demands of working class and the public. While I did not know ANYTHING about her music before looking up this sample, I found that she has some really great sounds.

Check out the source for this sample… Ince Ince

  1. This sample is everywhere apparently, it’s used in (basically constitutes) Oh No’s “Heavy” and I hear it’s featured on a madlib track as well

  2. Jordan,
    Thank you for the post! Check out the DVD “Crossing the Bridge: The Sound of Istanbul”, (which was shown at the Milwaukee International Film Festival a few years back), if you are curious about modern Turkish music.
