Turkish synth-pop act Jakuzi and LA-based post-punk artist Luis Vasquez aka The Soft Moon have crossed paths several times of the past several years. Having hung out together in Jakuzi’s hometown of Istanbul and also at Leipzig’s infamous Wave Gotik Treffen, a collaboration was inevitable.
Now, Vasquez has used his talent to conjure up a remix that adds grit to an already dark Jakuzi anthem, “Ne Teselli Ne Avuntu”. The track is taken from Jakuzi’s latest album ‘Hata Payi’, which was released in April 2019 via City Slang.

Additionally, Jakuzi have also recently released the official video to “Ne Teselli Ne Avuntu”. The clip, directed by Eli Kasavi follows singer Kutay Soyocak through a feverish dream at a funfair and a deserted valley:
“Ne Teselli Ne Avuntu” is the final track on Jakuzi’s second studio album “Hata Payı” (literally translated as ‘’a part of the mistake”), an album which makes a profound examination into what it’s like to be a young adult coming into his own in the cultural landscape of Istanbul, and what happens when success is finally achieved.
On the record, Jakuzi speaks to the alienation and pressures that come with being an artist, leading to struggles with personal relationships, mental health, and identity in relation to your surroundings.
“Hata Payı” is a crooning catharsis exploring the depths of the human condition.
