New Duo with David August “Aşa” To Release First Single “Su” On This Compilation on 99CHANTS

The origins of Aşa go back to early 2020 when Cansu Tanrikulu and David August found themselves in the studio in Berlin within a time of global stagnation and high motivation to record their brewing ideas after having curated a friendship and musical connection throughout some years. The result aimed to combine both of their compositional worlds using the improvisational repertoire of Tanrikulu and the scope of sound design that August was working on at that time.

After two years of keeping their ideas in the dark — and reflecting on the drafts and recordings — an early session came back to the surface, transformed and readapted to the concept of an imaginary landscape – using this platform as an opportunity to debut this collaboration that is eager to explore its identity in longer formats in near future.
