Hakan Akkus – I Can’t Be

hakan akkus - I can't be

I’m always on the lookout for new, exciting tunes from artists that aren’t clogging up the mainstream. It’s harder than it sounds, so when the time comes and I discover something different, it’s always a sweet feeling.

While my latest find doesn’t fall into the totally unheard of category (Hakan Akkus‘ “I Can’t Be” has been getting some rotation throughout Europe & the Middle East this summer), it is undoubtedly one of the best songs to come out of Turkey this year. Stream below.
