Belgrade Coffee Shop 3 Review by Jon Freer (firstname.lastname@example.org)
The third blend of rich eastern grooves again exhibits what those
of us in the west are missing out on. Showing the diversity of the
city, this compilation gives us a taste of Belgrade’s appreciation
of varied music. Tubacin’s “New Blues” sees ecstatic shouty vocals
yell over transporting keys, complaining synths and an anger releasing
electric guitar. Lo-Tek Grooves present us with “Plazma”, a raw
and untamed House composition, with quick hit beats, exposed analogue
bass, satisfying chords and a biting synth. Goldman & DJ Z update
I-Cube’s “Disco Cubizm” for Jazz leaning dancefloors, courtesy of
a dripping guitar, purring bass, spinning keys and a high-spirited
wild sax. An excellent celebration of under-exposed talent.
