Elektro Hafiz

CD (Item 857280) Pharaway Sounds (Spain), 2016 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock


A cool set by an artist who's clearly influenced by all the older trippy styles issued by the Pharaway Sounds label – especially that imprint's strong focus on fuzzy psych from the Mid-East! In fact, the overall sound of this set's so cool, you could easily pass it off as some lost Turkish rock from the 70s – as there's just the right sort of psych guitar lines and local instrumental currents to take us back to the glory days of the Anatolian scene – right down to the percussion, which is free of any too-contemporary modes that might hurt the pedigree of the sound. A few cuts pick up some of the slight electro elements that were in the early 80s Turkish scene – and titles include "Hayat Bu Malum", "Belki Son Kez", "Ne Diyeyim", "Dubb I Akbar", "John Dere", and "Destur III".  © 1996-2018, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible. All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.

With our Used CDs, you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks — clean, and not dirty at all. You can also expect the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves — putting fresh cases on Used CDs we handle) — and you can expect the booklet to be in good shape, unless noted otherwise. We will list any specific details/defects underneath the item — so look for notes on cutout marks in the case, stamps on the barcode, or details like that.
