Fake No more!
A slogan that caused a little uproar in one music scene two years ago and has not faded away since. Balkan yes, but please, how we think it should be. The Balkans are complex & its music is becoming more and more relevant in the cultural context of pop.
La Cherga is moving towards new horizons to present their new album in Spring 2011. Beforehand however, this compact and elegant selection of remixes will be published – created by the band’s artist buddies. Not everyone, however, found this task an easy one to accomplish:
“HERE WE GO…this might have been the longest time working on a RMX but maybe it’s not bad that it took me so long.” Kosta Kostov on “Ciganka”
“We have waited for the inspiration and the inspiration finally fell on the top my head.” Milan from Shazalakazoo on “Rembetiko 22“
Keeping true to the saying “A happy outcome is worth waiting for!” this wonderful club-oriented remix EP is the result of all that waiting. Stylistically this release take us across the entire range of city club and venue vibes:
DJ Delay is “down” with “Down Domination” and additionally electrodubs it to the limit.
Shazalakazoo add a pinch of Cumbia to their self-styled folkstep and deliver a euphoric version of “Rembetiko” – causing elation in over a million women.
Kosta Kostov is also deep in Cumbia. Supported by MC Killo Killo, he unexpectedly transplants “Ciganka” into a seedy Mexican quarter. There, Mexican Dubwiser awaits him. “What a Wonderful Life” – Cumbia Style!
BJ Crna Trava is outraged by this hankering for the Latino sound and shakes his head. Dubstep is his sound of truth: “Fake No More!”
The Balkantronika collective combine electronic elements and the sound of the Balkans to create a rather timeless track. They’d already refined La Cherga’s “Trouble Dub” and now seamlessly follow up with a version of “What a wonderful Life”. Voilá: another floor burner.
Since we have arrived on the dance floor it makes sense to speak about the Gipsy Syndicate too. With “Rembetiko 22” – originally a banging party hymn, the guys have gone even one better this time.
Peter Pozorek provides us with a little bit of a cooling down. “Lajka”, maybe the most beautiful song on Fake No More, has been transformed into a loungey Latin piece. Summer time is welcomed back…
