The Dolomites project has belted out an amalgamation of styles extracted from Europe, Japan, America, South America and other parts of the globe at intervals since 1998. Founded by Stevhen Koji Iancu aka Stefanko Selecta (Half-Japanese and Half-Romanian British-American National) in 1998, the Dolomites had their beginnings in an art punk house in Portland, Oregon.
Their first album “A Hogshead of Whiskey” was released in the year 2000 on Walking Records. Originally consisting mainly of drinking songs in Pogues styles with a Tom Waitsian accent, they later incorporated Gipsy, Jazz and Evil Disney sounds on the “Medicine Show E.P.”, released in 2002.
The Dolomite´s second album “Darumanian Chophouse” (2005), recorded and produced in Brooklyn, New York, brought out more Gipsy elements scrambled together with Japanese Pop and Enka style melodies. Stevhen Koji later went on hiatus from the Dolomites and started working with diverse musical projects, such as Gogol Bordello, Reverend Glasseye, Yerba Buena, Romashka, Mad Juana, as well as with OPVC, a gamelan theatre from San Francisco.
After being re-acquainted with his motherland (Japan), Stevhen Koji spent some time touring and recording in Japan and independently released 3 EPs on Monster Muzik : “Gaijin Gadjokai” (2007), “Nanjya Korya?-(What the F@%k is this?)” (2008) and “No End” (2009).
Following the Japan years the Dolomites sound steadily morphed into something nomadically fresh, as of today bringing crunked out beats and bass to the Gipsy melodies, fusing 8Bit, chiptunes, glitch hop and wonkyness to an unmistakeable Dolomites “8Bit Balkan” (2011) sound released on If the Kids Records (Berlin).
