Product Description

Product Description

Balkan Beat Box are back with their most musically intense and lyrically explosive album yet. 'Give' expands their trademark Mediterranean-inflected sound incorporating the energy and roughness of those current strains of African, Asian and South American electronic club music influenced by globalized forms of ragga, hip hop and dancefloor electronica.

The three core members of BBB have taken a different approach on 'Give'. Locked up in a studio, with an array of old analogue synths, they came up with this collection of slamming tracks which take their music to new territories. The band's songwriting has spectacularly evolved, with a number of more rock-oriented song structures and socio/political lyrical content.

Brimming over with handcrafted beats and samples, 'Give' yields up BBB's most textured sonic palette of their career with a more harder-edged, electronic sound. The songs and their subjects are also darker and more political.

Balkan Beat Box first burst out of New York City's underground music scene in 2005, with a self-titled debut album. Founded by Israeli-born expats Ori Kaplan (ex-Gogol Bordello) and Tamir Muskat (ex-Firewater), the band built their reputation on explosive live shows, becoming an audience favourite and a critic's darling. BBB soon added frequent collaborator Tomer Yosef as frontman, whose wild onstage energy has galvanized live audiences ever since.

Review

(5 stars) Imbibing influences from Curtis Mayfield to Bob Marley, 50s guitar licks, punk bass lines, Eastern European rhythms, reggaeton and dubstep - you name it - BBB leap out highly inebriated, defying both the inner dancer to stay still, and the armchair cynic to define them. --R2, March/April 2012

(4 stars) It's hard to resist...Balkan and hip-hop flavoured club music that captures the mood of the world today perfectly. --Songlines, (Alexandra Petropoulos), April/May 2012

I think "Urge to be violent" is possibly the greatest song of all time. Well, it cheered me up this morning anyway: [...]

HASH(0x97486b34) out of 5 stars I would marry this CD if I could 4 Jan. 2013
By S. B. Gannon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
After being given tickets to an upcoming BBB show, I decided I'd better get the new album, too. I like the self-titled album, LOVE Nu-Med, and like Blue-Eyed Black Boy, so I wasn't sure what my adoration level would be. I can't stop listening to GIVE. Even American friends who don't normally dig the kind of music I brought with me back from Israel love it. I don't expect it to go mainstream (and I somehow wouldn't want it to--is that mean?), but I love love love it. It has a danceable groove to it but hasn't lost the political edge we love BBB for. Seriously, I would marry this CD if it would change my oil and do yard work.

HASH(0x9bf5ea14) out of 5 stars A bit disappointed 30 Oct. 2012
By Tommi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I had high expectations when I ordered this CD. Unfortunately for me it wasn't as good as the previous BBB-records. The atmosphere feels a bit tired. But I've listened to it only a couple of times. Maybe it has still some hidden aspects that have't been revealed to me so far.
