Following hot on the heels of volume one, we are treated to another dollop of Balkan madness. There is a real cheeky energy to this growing genre which is spreading across the world's dancefloors like a forest fire.
At a recent set at the WOMAD festival in Wiltshire, DJ Russ Jones opened with Buscemi's Sahib Balkan, which is incidentally the first track on the album. The audience instantly forgot they were standing in mud, and were kicking their wellies high in the air, elbows akimbo with broad smiling faces...it's that infectious.
He soon followed with the second track, by La Reverdere with similar comic results. People just love kicking out their jamms to this stuff...
It's strange meld of virtuoso Romany insrumentation, bizarre time signatures, high octane BPMs, gypsy fiddle and accordian, hip hop, compelling beats, and sheer chutzpa is irresistible....and Russ 'n' Felix have picked the cream of the current crop with this collection.
Yes, resistance is futile... slide up onto the dancefloor, stick out those elbows, and get stomping!

really enjoyed this second volume of Balkan-cum-Gypsy music. Apart from the influences, I wouldn't say that many Gypsies would claim this as being gypsy music, however it does have a definite eastern european line to it. I'd describe it as more of a rock/techno/balkan-village album with a slavic and oriental overtone to it.

The result is a really great compilation : better even than the first album. And it definitely makes a change from all the other stuff you get to (have to) listen to on the radio and in the town. Without forgetting that it is just pure good, all out fun. Am already looking forward to long summer evenings partying and listening to this album.

Full of different instruments.....I would almost describe it as electro folk! I think there is a track for everyone! Definetly would recommend this to any one that likes something a bit different!

I love this compelation of marvelous tracks! Even the most dire of folk would have a hard time not tapping their feet along with at least one of these tracks.
This offers a great gateway into finding modern bands with an umpah feel.
Brilliant!
