Mohammad Reza Mortazavi (Tombak) & Burnt Friedman (electronics, synth.) release their second EP “YEK 2”.
Equipped with one drum only and laser-pattern electronics, Mortazavi and Friedman produce an elegant, yet archaic, trance–inducing, transnational dance music with “…hints of dust and grain…” (Freq)

Mortazavi and Friedman move hands and faders according to odd cyclical rhythms with incredible accuracy. The extreme dynamic range and rhythmic congruency of drum and electronics merge Mortazavi`s and Friedman’s repertoire entirely. Complete in [YEK], resisting cultural notions of folklore and territory.
