The Reason Why’s Original Tracks – Goran Kajfes Subtropic Arkestra

If you like spending time in record shops, just looking around for some old gems, then you should pay attention to the following cover art. These are the albums and EPs that Goran Kafjes himself must have stumbled upon one day since they all contain the original tracks from the Goran Kajfes Subtropic Arkestra’s The Reason Why, Vol. I, II & III.

These three albums were released in 2013, 2014, and 2017. You will find them listed in our playlists for the respective years with “Yakar Inceden Inceden“, ‎”Dokuz Seki/Esmerim“, and “Ne Rien Voir, Dire, Entendre“.

All the tracks hereunder are listed as they appear on the three albums, in the same order. Vol. III has an extra track on the CD version: “Sandy,” by Caribou.

As a sweet bonus, here is a playlist with all the tracks: The Reason Why’s Original Tracks on Spotify.
