Baskin is a hot new horror film from Turkey, and it comes with a noteworthy soundtrack from Ulas Pakken. It's a synth-tastic set of atmospheres, with some welcome Turkish twists to the familiar electro-horror drama sounds. Released by Invada on 2 slabs of blood red vinyl, with exclusive artwork from John Bergin.

This is the soundtrack to the 2015 Turkish horror flick 'Baskin' which I'm told features lots of blood and gore. The soundtrack though just about stands apart as it's own entity especially the opening two tracks which have the same kind of Carpenter-ish vibe that lurked within Boards of Canada's 'Tomorrow's Harvest'. More obviously soundtrack-like is the dramatic orchestral sweep of 'Death of the Parents' and from there the album veers around in all kinds of directions from piano weeping ('Akif the Footboy') to Bollywood like danceable pop to atmospheric sound sorcery. T
The tracks are all very short, kind of vignettes really of a couple of minutes each and there's hints of Cliff Martinez 'Drive' soundtrack. It doesn't keep the same mood throughout so could be a tricky listen for the casual listener but fans of the 'classic' era of soundtracks should perhaps investigate.
