Gulec – Rush (Original Mix) [Perspectives Digital]

Posted by

The final release of 2021 on Darin Epsilon’s Perspectives Digital features two powerful and emotive tracks by talented Turkish artist Gulec. The young producer showcases a glorious musical language of rhythm and melody through his “Rush” EP.

With over a decade of experience in dance music that began by creating playlists for local radio stations at age 8, Gulec has been on a path from his early days of producing Trance music and matured into an impressive producer of Progressive House and Melodic Techno. Previously channeling his talents into a string of powerful releases under the name Mehmet Gulec, his music found its way into the playlists of the DJ glitterati including BT, Paul Van Dyk, Markus Schulz, and Solarstone, among many others.

As a performer, Gulec has a successful DJ career that has taken him across his native Turkey – in Istanbul, Cesme, and Bodrum – along with a series of high-profile gigs in the Middle East. Sharing the decks alongside established stars such as Sezer Uysal, Mahmut Orhan, Murat Uncuoglu, and Lunar Plane, Gulec’s maxim that “melody is the key to communication” is further demonstrated in his debut EP for Perspectives.

The title track “Rush” is a glorious tour de force that bristles with dynamic brio. A heavy beat and syncopated bassline form the foundation for ticking hats to sit atop before a shimmering arpeggio lilts across the mid-range with effervescent ease. Rising and falling in smooth waves, dance-friendly snare rolls give subtle aural cues to the listener, while a searing glissando lead makes its presence felt during the stripped-back breakdown. Building toward a powerful denouement, the second half bursts into multi-faceted layers of sound where the main lead, arps, and rhythmic force blend into a rousing finale.

“Freefall” continues the rich melodic dynamism of its predecessor as an immaculately cadenced bassline nestles easily amongst a whip-cracking kick and swung percussion. The synth holds firm in a filtered arpeggio phrase while a glassy counterpoint motif adds emotion and a light, airy touch. White-noise textures roll across the breakdown before Gulec’s production prowess provides a launchpad for the melodies and sounds introduced in the early stages, to build again in the second half to mesmerizing effect.
