In the late nineties, Özden Öksüz and Metin Yilmaz were part of MC
Sultan which worked on a polyglot idea of pop. Years ahead of Panjabi
MC’s chart success, the global style mix was doing well in terms of
acid jazz – we should admit that MC Sultan had a very wide definition
of this genre….
When Sultan-mates Vlado and Mario went off to score as dZihan & Kamien, Öksüz und Yilmaz founded Eden, targeting the Turkish market. Now, together with Wilko Goriany, a viennese musician and producer, they formed coup deBam.
The core collaborators are friends, meeting during years of making music, but coup deBam also features vocal newcomer Barbara Bandi.
