Exploring "The Inner Murmur" with Mai featuring Yasmeen Olya

Istanbul-born, Berlin-based producer Mai’s single Jouska blends his field recordings from the gritty streets of Berlin, elements of Turkish folk music, organic percussions, groovy basslines and synth/keys improvisations. Mai meditates on the theme “the Inner Murmur’ and Jouska is completed by the hauntingly beautiful voice of Yasmeen Olya.

Jouska is an old English word for hypothetical conversations that we compulsively play out in our heads, the dialogue between two conflicting voices in our minds. The word reflects a psychological battleground where we confront our most brutal ideas. Yet this is also a point where we can deeply connect with ourselves. The conflict is what wakens the harmony and beauty.
