#occupygezi (Undomondo’s Mix for Geziradyo.org)

13 Jun 2013 — Henning Lahmann

The mix below was posted yesterday by long-standing and excellent fellow blogger and Istanbul radio DJ undomondo, who's actually done this much longer than we have, and who has always been one of the most reliable sources of weird and exciting music on the web. He's been with us ever since we started, so by posting his mix and his brief explanation, we just want to show that we're with him, too, and with everyone else who's fighting for their rights and against oppression in Turkey these days. Take care and be safe, all of you.

"This mixtape was originally conceived thanks to a request from geziradyo.org, a radio hastily founded by activists after the civil uprising in Istanbul, which started at the end of May and continues on. I did this mix first and foremost for the people who have been occupying and living at the park for the last 15 days and I intended it to be a peaceful and cosmic one which would have been aired yesterday around 11PM. But the events took another violent turn yesterday, so I don't really know if this does mean anything to those people now. Nevertheless I'm still putting it online, may it give inspiration to all the brave activists everywhere around the world. Peace."
