This charming tune: Taylan Çıtak – Kleam #chill #minimal #house #ProgressiveHouse #electronic

Can a track be charming? Dunno. But that was the word that leaped, unbidden, into my mind for this track. A new release from Taylan Çıtak. Coming from Ankara, Turkey he offers Kleam.

Kleam is a bit of a genre nightmare. It’s somewhere between downtempo, minimal and progressive house. It’s the low key progressive house that gives it a gentle charm. A shy smile of a tune but with ambition. Of himself, he says, “I’m amateur” which doesn’t come across in this accomplished track. The tune comes with the legend “I don’t like what I’m becoming” which could relate to a sense of self awareness, rather than self-aggrandisement. Hello UK and US administrations. There’s a lovely contrast between almost orchestral majesty and homely xylophone that keeps the track perfectly balanced. Like I said, just charming.
