Beat science inspired by the sound of Turkey.
Üvez's beat-science approach makes his music compatible with the likes of Hessle Audio, Livity Sound and Timedance. But even by the standards of those trail-blazing UK labels, his rhythms can sound strange. On "Uzaktaki Işık," Üvez places a percussion pattern and an acidic synth in an interlocking circular motion. I'm not smart enough to say what time signature it's in, but the grand entrance of a pad sound later in the track ties everything together with an easily appreciable logic. Üvez's often sounds best when he pairs the rhythmic craftiness with affecting melodies, a point that "YTK" nicely illustrates with a mood that reminded me a little of Plastikman. "Gegek" is at the other end of his range—it's basically a drum track that's super heavy on hand percussion. The spirit of UK club music seems most present on "Ceviz," a cut that shudders forward with an uneasy synth, slabs of bass and snares drums where you're least expecting them.
