Stefan Hantelaka Shantelis German, but his love and respect for Eastern European and Arab music infuse the tracks he's put together for this collection. The worldwide popularity of hip-hop and club beats can often make one fear for the future of indigenous sounds, but Shantel has found a way to mash the fractured rhythms of the Balkans, Israel, North Africa, and various Gypsy cultures into the basic disco thump without diluting these ancient traditions.
Every track is a multinational mash-up full of insane good humor and booty-bouncing beats guaranteed to get you out of you seat and onto the dancefloor. The title track is a good example: an accordion introduces a reggae-ized disc thump with wild Balkan horns, burping tuba, and the dueling electric guitars of Uzi Feinerman and Uri Kinrot dropping licks that reference everything from surf music to Egyptian pop.
Balkan folk-jazz singer Vesna Petkovic 's lilting presence complements Shantel 's good-time vocals. Greek singer Jannis Karis Dubstar Bugarskji - Shantel - Disko Partizani his soulful grit to "Immigrant Child," another pounding piece of disco-ska accented by the frenzied sound Coys Toyz - Come And Get It a Balkan Gypsy brass band.
