Having musically been a few times around the world,the Boom Shakalaka team, have also become more aware of their own musical heritage. The finnish, scandinavian, nordic and baltic region has a rich folk music tradition with nice bouncy accordeon rhythms and beautiful fiddle harmonies. To make this material more suitable for the club, they started making remixes of finnish folk music, which got some great feedback from.
One thing lead to another and finally they realized they have a new genre on their hands, which decided to call Baltik Bass, drawing from the musical traditions of the countries around the Baltic Sea.
Here is a first official promotional track, free to download, from the upcoming Maasto Records release Boom Shakalaka presents: Baltik Bass vol. 1. Enjoy!
