Balkan Reggaeton

Now that I've gotten the buzzword title out of the way, I'll reveal my sources on a few of the Balkan inspired jams I've picked up lately. These tracks have mixed in surprisingly well on air and in the club.

The first is a DJ Kozi blend with a reggaeton beat over it. I'm more partial to the Trubaci (brass) stuff for some reason cuz it's crazy hype. This and other remixes available at

Trubaci Cik Cik (Reggaeton Remix)

And here's a house edit of a song by the Mahala Rai Band. The original bumps on it's own, but the beat here gives it just a bit more backbone for the dance floor. You would have heard both on the program these last couple weeks though. You can find it on a CD called Gypsy Beats and Balkan Bangers out on the Basement Jaxx label.

Mahalageasca Felix B Jazzhouse Dub

Cambridge got a taste of a few Balkan jams as well when Honk Fest (pic above) went down a few weeks ago. It was a crazy time with lots of great bands playing all sorts of Klezmer, hip-hop, New Orleans, and even Afrobeat jams! The What Cheer? Brigade particularly brought the house down and journeyed only as far as from Providence! Hopefully this means they'll be back again real soon. Lord knows it's a shorter trip then their previous excursions to lands as far as Serbia for the Festival of Trumpeters at Guca. Guca is known as about the largest, loudest, and drunkenest brass band gathering in the world and from the movie trailers alone it seems to live up to the hype. This doc due out on DVD here hopefully soon:

Alright I think I got that out of my system. Join me on air tonight. Max from Cert. Bananas in town again for a Milky Way gig Thurs. I'll be at Harvard playing Sat, and then a Halloween get down at Northeastern sometime after that. Busy times!
