Hailing from Istanbul, Turkey, 23 year old Surrender ! has made quite an impact in his short career to date.
Heralded by numerous blogs for his fresh-faced, unabashed brand of disco nouveau , one may recall his debut single 'Locate' topping the Hype Machine chart, the idiosyncratic funk of Phonat's mix of 'Travellers' reaching the top 10 on Beatport's Indie-Dance/Nu Disco chart, or his ode to vintage northern soul, 'Conflicted' clocking up more than 1000 downloads within one day of release.
Having received extensive support from a host of A-list DJs such as Aeroplane, Digitalism, A-Trak, Villa, Treasure Fingers and Moguai, Surrender ! unleashes his eponymous debut album in August 2012. A tour-de-force of classic drum-machined house, vintage European soundtrack obscurity and feel good nu-disco, the album features the talents of highly-vaunted Oakland songbird Jhameel (recently profiled as the Guardian's Band of the Day) and La Bombe head honcho Sharooz on mixdown duties.
