Kaynatan also has stuff performed, composed and arranged on EMS synthesizer. " Munimonde "I heard Pencerenin Perdedisini / Beyoglunda Gezersin (1 Numera A.K.06) from Marthy's collection.
First track are club rhythms with moog/electronic sounds / rhythms. Second instrumental is even more funky. The moog rhythms and sounds create a very happy and groovy sound. Highly recommended."

NO:45-LA-505) has the songs "The Savage" & "If I had a hammer" . I didn't hear that one yet. Gokcen also cooperated with the electronic music experiments of Baris Manço.
