After the excellent feedback given by critics, audiences and dancefloors to the first volume of Balkanica!, here is the second chapter to this emotional saga showing the two aspects of the evolution of the Iron Curtain Sound in Western music clubs .
On one hand, the scene has matured, moving from a test phase to a consolidation of its codes, constantly exceeding its limits. On the other, the Balkan seed is a bearing fruits in unexpected corners of the world, turning what was just a sound in a spirit in to a presence that can cross-talk with DJs.
The sound of Balkanica V2 is varied and versatile, yet very consistent in conceptual and emotional terms. From the Occitan world of Lou Dalfin to the denied orthodoxy of Balkan Beat Box, from the solutions at the edge of combat rock of Figli Di Madre Ignota to the swing sensations of Emperor Gypsy, from the vocational street sound of Bandakadabra to the migrant destiny of Opa Cupa; filtered through the passion and experience of Feel Good Productions and by other digital accomplices the like of Ahilea, Dusty, Dr Cat, Pavor Stelar, DJ Pony and Stefano Miele, the world of Balkanica! V2 moves perfectly balanced between past and future, Eastern Europe and global freedom of action.
