by Aziza A
Released: Jun 2001
Label: Doublemoon Records
"Kendi Dunyam" means "my world" in Turkish. In German-Turkish MC Aziza A's world, regal samples of Turkish folk and classical "makams" -- improvised opening segments -- introduce many tracks before they are nipped and tucked into new sounds and structures, buttressed by downtempo-meets-drum 'n' bass beats. Over the din of that pastiche sounds Aziza A, her clear, powerful voice spitting a Turkish rhyme hard and fast here, purring an incredibly seductive hook there. Aziza's world sounds like a nice place.
