On latest release, ‘FIN’, Onur Seçki doesn’t let his fans down with this ritualistic, shamanic underground dance track.
Onur originally created ‘FIN’ for the final scene of a theatrical dance show – but it soon evolved into a more independent release.
The song begins with a short melodic sample of the Baglama (a traditional Turkish stringed instrument), representing his cultural roots. From there, Onur began building the music with atmospheric synthesizer pulses, trance/techno style bass lines. Plus a deep kick to evolve the track to the exact vibe he was looking for. The addition of the enchanting female vocal melody creates the mystical & sentimental feel within the track.
“The message may differ depending on the listener, but the song has a gripping lyrical story which is inviting the listener into a ritualistic atmosphere. It wakes them up into an enthusiastic, shining world from the darkness.”
Onur Seçki is an Istanbul based independent electronic music artist from Adana, Turkey. After graduating from high school in his hometown, he moved to Istanbul, where he studied Chemical Engineering. He then started learning the ethnic percussion instrument ‘darbuka’ from master Misirli Ahmet. After working a 9-5 job by day and as a percussion performer by night, he shifted his career to audio engineering after graduating from the SAE Institute, Istanbul in 2012.
This life-changing career shift was an exciting challenge for Onur, as he began his journey to becoming a music producer. While working as an audio engineer, he upgraded his knowledge in music production by doing a masters degree in sound technology.
Pulling from his roots in Turkish traditional folk music and percussive background, Onur started to produce his own music in 2017 as an emotional and creative outlet. Following his graduation, he released his first single ‘Bouka’ in 2018. This single was a reflection of his unique style. Uniting the traditional with the contemporary – blended with his ethnic rhythm background.
In 2019, he started performing with the famous Turkish electronic music group Hey! Douglas and performed at countless events in legendary concert halls and festivals in Turkey. In the same year, he released his second single ‘Bosphorus’, featuring his friend Cihan Güneşer. 2020 saw the release of Onur’s oriental flavoured electronic single ‘Arabex’, a searing track that captured the attention of many tastemakers. Fast forward to December 2020, he’s followed up with the new single ‘FIN’. An intriguing track combining both ethnic and techno influence.
