Jakuzi is a Turkish synthpop band, formed in Istanbul in 2015. The band consists of Kutay Soyocak and Taner Yücel, who formed the project to move away from their previous punk-oriented music projects. The duo rose prominence in Istanbul's underground music scene.[1] The band's debut album Fantezi Müzik, originally released in 2016 through Domuz Records,[2] is reissued on City Slang on 24 March 2017.[1]

The band's sound has been described as synthpop, dark wave[3][4] and new wave.[2] Jakuzi is influenced by Turkish pop music, as well as genres ranging from krautrock, disco and post-punk.[1]
