Portecho

BandEDM

The duo, made up of Tan Tuncag and Deniz Cuylan, interpret dance music in their own way by uniting electronica with rock and adding a touch of the 80s. In Portecho's debut album "Undertone", electronic rhythm sections and hypnotizing English vocals are intertwined with warm guitar melodies.
