Debut release for Boston’s Kaan Erbay under his Insha project. Slices of the city’s dark rowdy, and emotionally scarred underbelly that Burial inhabits, but guided around by the tricky cut-up beats, vocal samples and sample fragments of Arca, the dark referential sounds of Dean Blunt and with the crisp precision of Nosaj Thing. Inertia based heavy beats.

Imagine the meeting of Arca and Burial, they said. I tried. I don’t think I could have imagined this... Boston’s Insha has just dropped ten tracks taking the splintered sci-fi sound cues of the former and the juxtaposed the nocturnal undercurrents and cityscapes of the latter, on his new full-length slab of wax for Type. Kaan Erbay has confidently navigated his tense, serpentine world using cut-up beats and infinite depth-charges.
Ghosts of video games and cinema take their place amongst Erbay’s serrated-edge beats. Breathy vocals emerge from the backdrop of fog-obscured sonics to pull you in. When the mist dissipates, stealthily, the partial rhythms of rehydrated club tracks come in to the scenario to refresh and relieve you in the aftermath of just-bearable dread. The sounds are cut to a mightily impressive high precision. It’s a densely layered and narrated journey that engages the mind.
