TAYFUN // FIGO
LABEL: KARRY KASH RECORDINGS
RELEASED: OUT NOW
A myriad of strong influences taken from his Turkish background and unsettled upbringing make for the hard-hitting debut single ‘Figo’, from 20 year old, Tottenham based, Tayfun.
The track, produced by SLVNG MAJOR and Patrick Osei (mastered by Chris Athens (Drake – Views), proves to be a real juxtaposition of cultures as Tayfun details what life was like growing up in Tottenham over an echoing middle-eastern chorus that is accentuated by the genuine Turkish sounds of the saz guitar, played by Tayfun himself. The rapper lays bare a previously troubled soul as his honest lyricism tells a captivating story. ‘Figo’ is paired with an equally compelling video and the cinematic visuals for his debut track comes courtesy of director Teeeezy C of Frankincense and Myrrh.
“The world belongs to the patient mind, no point rushing when you’re young. Take your time, make everything neat.” – Tayfun
With an impressive debut and cultural influences that set him apart from other rappers in the emerging scene, 2017 is set to be a destination for Tayfun.
