Renaissance and the duo have been proving the depth of their collaborative bond and the significance of their creation, showcasing how much time they’ve dedicated together. Last year, the legendary club and record label Renaissance made its debut in Istanbul on November 4th, featuring an international lineup for the first time. Among the acts like Frankey & Sandrino, Yet More, and AÜRA, Orkun Bozdemir, and Black Batu took the Klein Phönix stage with their B2B performance. Since that day, the ties between the label and the artists have only strengthened, culminating in this remarkable piece.

Black Batu, emerging swiftly from Turkey’s vibrant music scene, has left an indelible mark on the global stage with his powerful and distinctive sound. Known for his mastery of Afro house, Black Batu‘s journey began in the last decade and has since captivated audiences worldwide. Meanwhile, Orkun Bozdemir, a pivotal figure in Turkey’s music scene, has crafted a groundbreaking track together, “Glitch Fields“, showcasing his versatility and innovation as a DJ, producer, and event promoter. With releases on esteemed labels like Renaissance, Bozdemir’s influence extends far beyond Turkey’s borders, earning him performances in iconic venues across Europe. “Glitch Fields” marks Black Batu‘s debut and Bozdemir’s latest pinnacle, cementing their status as trailblazers in electronic music.

“Our friendship shaped around our passions about DJing, music production and event business. After a few years playing music, making music and carrying out event projects together, we decided to be officially partners and set up our own company. At the same time we were thinking about this new company project, we spontaneously started to work on a new track in the studio and tried to blend our different tastes. The result finally satisfied both of us and Glitch Fields was born, we also gave this name to our new company.”
