Various Artists - Crammed Discs, Electric Gypsyland 2
Label: Crammed Discs / A Train

Much better than its predecessor, the second Electric Gypsyland compilation smartly collects modern tracks that have been remixed by the likes of Animal Collective, Tunng and Balkan Beat Box and then provides a second disc for listeners eager to find out exactly what the originals actually sounded like. It's a neat exercise, which may see you lose respect for indie stalwarts (see the Collective's lazy take on “Oi Bori Sujie”), but also gasp… read more »

Another album I would have gone for if it was available in the UK ...

Magic Strikes Twice

In the caravan and on the road again with the wild and passionate sounds of gypsy stars as re-interpreted by assorted electronic wanderers. Hard to choose between Electric Gypsyland 1 and 2. Be sure to listen to the original tracks as well.

Great remixes on first CD, classics on 2nd

johnelstad

If you've dowloaded much of the Balkan stuff on eMusic, you're probably already familiar with some of the bands remixed here. Many of the remixes are fantastic and most worth downloading. The second CD has original tracks (not the ones remixed on the first CD) by the artists. Be sure to check out the albums by the original artists if you're looking for more traditional Balkan stuff.

They Say All Music Guide

Like its predecessor, Electric Gypsyland 2 is a collection of reinterpretations of recordings by several modern Balkan bands — some of the new versions are relatively straightforward remixes, while others are much more dramatic and imaginative reworkings of the source material. Unlike the first volume in this series, however, this one also includes a bonus disc that offers original, untouched versions of songs by those same bands (though they’re not always the same tracks as the ones remixed on the first disc). The format and presentation of this collection may be a bit unusual and even disconcerting, but that’s probably as it should be — the same is true of the music itself, which is a wild fusion of musical styles even in its original form and is even more kaleidoscopically varied in the remixes. Check out the wild, almost klezmer-sounding clarinet on Koçani Orkestar’s “Mi Bori San Korani,” and the glitchy techno underpinnings that Smadji installs beneath it, or the dubwise production effects that DJ ClicK applies to Mahala Raï Banda’s already faintly reggae-inflected “Romano Dance.” But the album’s highlight is “Red Bula,” a brilliant piece of party-ready horn-based Gypsy dance funk given an even wilder setting by Balkan Beat Box. Contributions by Cibelle and Oi Va Voi are equally exciting. Highly recommended. – Rick Anderson
