Protest at Gezi Park and Taksim, Istanbul, Turkey, 2013 (Tom Palmers, Leo Rokita)
Brooklyn and Manhattan, New York (recording by Pablo Herrera, locations by Nicole Gier)
The fifth record on NEW YORK TRAX is by Løt.te, the Turkish-born, Brooklyn-based DJ, producer and designer affiliated with The Bunker New York by virtue of two well-received vinyl releases. This politically charged EP titled ‘State of Exception’ is Løt.te’s personal reflection on the current social and political climate in Turkey. The opening ‘Ultra Vires’ is a relentless synth-driven warehouse track mercilessly rolling at the speed of 140BPM.
