Here’s a great release by the same peeps who brought us that massive ANALOGIK track last year Gipsy Kings with Malente and Dex.  I grabbed it from my homie Mikael Palner whi I’ve been in touch with for  afew years now in connection with Analogik.

Mikael runs Urban World Records and the blog too which is well worth checking out on a reegular basis.

Here’s what the label say about this new release:

Here at UrbanWorld we like to travel, we like the sounds of travel and we like to combine it in new and exiting ways. An artist who is brilliant in combining music from around the globe is Kosta Kostov of the BxP Soundsistema, born in Bulgaria, he grew up surrounded by the unique balkan music. Moving to Cologne in Germany opened his mind to clubmusic where he is the main force behind the clubs Balkan Express and Favela Blast and resident DJ of Global Player, the Funkhaus Europe Club.

On his first EP as BxP Soundsistema he is combining the sounds from the Balkan Express and Favela Blast parties, powerful balkan beats with a dancehall rhythm. He worked on this project with the greek funky breakbeat producer & dj George Fotiadis, featuring the serbian MC Killo Killo, Princess Julianna, a Jamaican singer and MC based in London and the Moroccan ribab & violin virtuose player Foulane. An important part of the production and the live shows of BxP Soundsistema is the Greek bouzouki player & percussionist Dimitrius Goldfinger Pingios. The result is fresh new production of own compositions, remixes and mashups, in which the balkan & mediterraneum meets all the nice flavas from dub & reggae through funk & breaks till basss and electro. As if this was not good enough we called Shazalakazoo to get the real sound of balkan disko, BadboE to funk it up bigtime and Al Lindrum to take it all the way to Jamaica.

Kosta Kostov will be in the USA in August 2010 (1/8-18/8) playing at the NYC Tabor Gypsy Festival (13-15/8), if you are interested in making a booking please contact him at kostov “at”

Copia Doble Systema: Al Lindrum’s mix is a kicking combination of the dancehall vibe and balkanism!

Eastenders: yess!!! kosta has done it in full effect. with all his cologne- and worldwide buddys. what a train-ride!! who needs planes anyway? catch it! peace, stefan

Dunkelbunt: very very nice. I like every single release on uwr. this label melts all stilez and bring together all the headz from the global beats scene…!
