Surprisingly, compellingly danceable,
This review is from: Gypsy Beats And Balkan Bangers (Audio CD)
Surprisingly infectious dancefloor stormers from the Balkans. DJ's Russ Jones and Felix B have unearthed these discs on their travels, and they make you forget your preconceptions and stomp along to the pacy oompah beats. Yes these tunes are unmistakeably Eastern European in origin, imagine a Romanian wedding band on E's. The collection is given nice variety, with excursions into Rai, Mariachi, and other exotica. The compilers have included their more club-friendly remixes of a number of tunes as bonus tracks. I defy anyone to remain still with some of these babies pounding through a big system... quality ... no really!
