Berlin based Turkish electronic producer Özcan Ertek aka Seretan has released a new single, ‘Lost In Time‘. Five years in the making and stemming from a collaborative jam back in 2013 with Kieran Hebden aka Four Tet at New York’s soon to be defunct Red Bull Music Academy, the track is characterised by the delicate boom of its insistent sub-bass beat and the rhythmic shuffle that saunters around it. It also boasts a heady mixture of disquieting synth, broken percussive elements and meticulously inserted field recordings done over time in and around his native Istanbul.

And speaking of that burgeoning metropolis, ‘Lost In Time’ comes complete with a superbly shot accompanying video directed by Jeremy Rubier which we are honoured to premiere today. It sees the artist embark on a surreal like metaphorical quest through his old neighbourhood of Aynalıçeşme in Beyoğlu, the lost instrument representing the rapidly gentrifying area’s gradual loss of its traditional as well as its independent and underground character. Watch below. ‘Lost In Time’ is available as a stand alone single on Ertek’s own imprint Transferans here and will be part of a new EP of the same name out later this year.
