When Berus debuted in January 2021 on Kommerz Records with his “Voyage EP”, he had no idea how precise
the title would be for the coming months. A little over a year before the release of “Voyage” the Berlin based
multi-instrumentalist and producer had taken his focus away from his, more than a decade lasting, house and
techno career towards a new sound, inspired from neo soul and hip-hop. Whilst his electronic projects found
home on Kerri Chandler's Madhouse Recordings and DVS1’s infamous Mistress and gained his moniker Frag
Maddin worldwide attention, it was part of his progress to focus on himself and Berus, his real name. He took this
step not knowing it would lead him into a dark journey of self revelation, identity finding and for the foremost new
hope: blue hope.
Berus was born to a Zaza family in Kurdistan, which eventually migrated to Germany escaping prosecution and
discrimination of the nationalist regime in Turkey. The family settled in Hamburg and Berus grew up to be a

musician. He played the drums, formed teen punk bands and started producing at an early age experimenting
and shaping his future as an artist.
Since the beginning of his career Berus releases can be seen like a diary, always expressing his very personal
state at the time. For the work on “Blue Hope” two main topics fall into the production of the album: love
relationships and seeking identity.
There is a blue melancholy and reflection leading through the album. On “Talk to Me (Karþýlýklý)” Berus opens up
about his feelings of true love and the need to set free when they are not answered. Whilst the incredible Mulay
who is featured on “Holy Waters” answers with her female perspective. And there is hope. The hope (“Dream
On”) and fears (“Being Alive” feat. Sedric Perry) of a young migrant generation. “Blue Hope'' is a coming of
age story that’s relatable and yet unique, honest but vulnerable and for the foremost: 100% Berus.
The album is a neatly curated mixtape and delivers a wide range of styles like the jiggy sounding Mike Nasa on
“On Me” all the way to “Wholesome” on which Barne delivers a John Mayer-esque performance.
On “Blue Hope” Berus gathered a mixture of old friends and new talent around him to produce the record. The
outcome is an LP referencing different influences without the use of any samples.
Berus shows impressively he is here to stay and has a bright future to come. Like he says on the final song of the record "Resilience": "Happiness is selfmade".

'The Search' from Collocutor, the band’s second LP, is the story of a journey, from disillusionment to new beginnings, alienation to belonging, darkness to hope. It is a journey that can be interpreted as spiritual, emotional or physical/geographical, depending on the listener’s own experiences. Tamar Osborn, the band leader and composer says: “This wasn’t planned as a ‘concept’ album, but as the four main compositions developed they and their titles fell into a natural narrative order and the theme of the album became apparent. The three improvised Conversations were an opportunity to explore musically the meaning of ‘collocutor’ - a person taking part in a conversation - and how this applies to performance, and also to expand the textural range of the ensemble by dividing it into smaller groupings and freeing the musicians from structured composition.” The album had already been listed by The Vinyl Factory as one of their “Best new vinyl releases to look out for in 2017”, and has gained the enthusiastic support of icons such as Gilles Peterson, Mulatu Astatke and many others. Collocutor have The 2017 Mercury Awards submission in their sights and The Search could well have jazz breaching the shortlist yet again. Tamar Osborn has kicked off 2017 appearing at the Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide Awards 2017 alongside Ninja Tune’s Sarathy Korwar: an incredible performance that set the tone of one of the most important celebrations of independent music. Collocutor’s sound has also graced the ears of the diverse audience that gathered to the Church of Sound last week (2/2/2017), with the band performing music from Yussef Lateef’s songbook as well as receiving a rapturous ovation for The Search. A sold-out concert, a moment of magic at Hackney's historic St. James the Great church, the new go-to destination for London jazz lovers that will be followed quickly by a headline performance at The Jazz Cafe. Established in 2013, On The Corner Records has rapidly established itself at the vanguard of the London jazz scene and Collocutor, its first signing has now become a leading force in the UK homegrown jazz movement.
