New Music released — “Lights of Baku” EP — Gurban Abbasli featuring singer-songwriter — Becky Gregory!
NEW music release from Baijan records out on all digital stores on the 24th February 2022…
After all my years in the music business with so many ups and downs you still can’t beat a solid producer creating beats with a strong vocalist to carry the song!
I remember the days when labels were so against dance music, but in the back of their minds, they knew it makes money — even to this day, you can’t beat a GREAT dance track!
In my humble opinion it’s still one of the best, maybe the best way to create and break a track and vocalist, going way back to the “90’s scene with the creation and founders of dance music.
Founded in the 1970s, the German band Kraftwerk are widely considered to be the pioneer of electronic music. They were among the first to popularise the genre, developing a distinctive “robot pop” style.
The producer — Gurban Abbasli
The BMI registered artist Gurban Abbasli is the electronic music producer, DJ and one of the pioneers of the Azerbaijan electronic music scene.
He was born in the town of Shaki, whose amazing mountains, nature landscapes and ancient history influenced him towards producing chillout music.
He started to produce electronic music in the chillout genre in 2008, using ancient sounds mixed with the urban beats and deep spheres that he loves to use in his music.
In his tracks, he uses Azerbaijani Mugham and its elements with Blaban leaks, which are the main ethnic and folk music of Azerbaijan…
The main tracks in his career were impressive and strong collaborations with Juliet Lyons “Together” and “Without your love” singles were released and compilated with progressive trance, Dub and chill out remixes and with remixes of the big names of the Progressive Trance music as Morvan Mor and Bilal El Aly.
Those releases were supported by the big names as — Paul Van Dyke, M.I.K.E., Giuseppe Ottaviani, Dimension, Reconceal, DJ FEEL, Manuel Le Saux, Las Salinas, Snatt & Vix, Suzy Solar Fan Page, Cold Rush, Tjerk Coers.
Gurban does his own music and tries to not match with the other producers in order to not make ghost copies of known tracks in structure or in sound.
Gurban’s remixes of Calvin Harris feat Rihanna — This Is What You Came and Lady GaGa — Perfect Illusion was played in main radio stations of the world and were supported by featured artists with the thousands play on Soundcloud.
“Music brings us all together regardless of the nation and religion to which we belong. And I’m very happy for that.” — Gurban Abbasli.
