The urge to explore the new dimensions of the global music scene and our rapidly darkening times is undoubtedly behind Dirtmusic’s new line-up and their hypnotic new sound. The two constants in the band’s history, Chris Eckman, familiar to Ljubljana’s music fans as head of locally based record label Glitterbeat, and Hugo Race, modern bluesman and ex-Bad Seed, are joined this time round by visionary Turkish psychedelicist Murat Ertel from Baba Zula. The band will be promoting their latest, hugely acclaimed album, Bu Bir Ruya, in the wonderful surroundings of the Monfort warehouse in Piran.
