Balkan Hotsteppers one hot step ahead

We [@ Burdel Dali] always pay close attention to what surrounds us in a daily basis and what is going on in our young always changing musical universe.
The Balkan Hotsteppers represent what every dj desires… knowledge, skill and a tireless obsession for making things smooth and more festive than they already are.

from their profile:
Formed back in 2006 by Belgian DJ’s Sam Rabam and Typsy Gypsy, the infamous Balkan Hotsteppers released trendsetting mixtapes on the internet. Combining modern beats with classical Balkan, gypsy and klezmer melodies and mashing it up with hip-hop, they soon became a standard in the evergrowing European BalkanBeats scene.

Four years later they have played all over Europe: Belgium, France, Holland, Ireland, UK, Denmark, Germany, Switzerland, Hungary, Romania, Turkey, Spain, Portugal. Their unique blend will take you on a eclectic trip to the balkans and beyond. Balkan Mashups, Klezmer Beats, Gypsy Punk, Russian Ska, Romano Hip Hop, Yugoslavian Brass Bangers,…!

We at Burdel Dali salute you Balkan Hotsteppers! You have a house and a podium in New York city.


Jewish klezmer vs Gypsy music

There are similarities between klezmer and Roma (Gypsy) music, and fusions of the two have become very popular in recent years. There are several reasons why Jewish klezmer and Gypsy music share common elements and blend together well.

Like the Jews, the Gypsy people are an ancient ethnicity that did not originate in Europe; they are believed to be people of the Indian subcontinent who have migrated through the Near East into Europe. Also like the Jews, the Gypsy people were a separate minority group generally living on the margins of the societies of the countries in which they lived.
Both groups maintained distinct cultural identities despite being widely scattered, possessed no country or homeland of their own, and were frequent targets of expulsions, discrimination, and persecution. Like klezmer, Gypsy music is likely traditional religious Roma songs combined with the music of host countries, and influenced by Gypsy status as a wandering and often marginalized minority. Despite of all this, the music of both groups is often joyful and exemplifies the energy and fire of life and of living.

Immigrant anthems, always!

There’s a tweet circulating twitter lately… there are many variations, but the gist of it is: “Your watch is Swiss. Your fashion is French. Your shirt is Indian. Your shoes are Thai. Your radio is Korean. Your vodka is Russian.”

It’s a pro-immigration awareness campaign and we have no idea where it began, but we love it. CELEBRATE THE DIVERSITY OF THIS CITY AND THIS NATION! Thursday night, the immigrant anthems, tropical percus…sion, circle-dancing, floor-cracking joviality rages on!

DJ Mishto & Raphlex have your chalga, bhangra, Russian festive, Bregovic anthems, Hungarian lullabies, cumbia anything-except-lullabies, etc… Turbo-tropics via conga and bongo by the Atari Conga-crew, Chico Cristo & Crispeto!

Hosted by Mishka–festive and/or Soviet dress code! We’re shooting footage for our new promo video at every party now, so come like you mean it!

Raphlex X Mishka in the ICE CAGE

One epic night in the ice cage with Raphlex & Mishka—accompanied by our beautiful shot girl Sarita, our Russian princess Anastasia, and all of the attractive bohemian wackos we’ve come to know and love at our Saturday night party, BALKAN BUBBLEGUM…

Sarita & Mishka!

Raphlex going bananas… with our fabulous new masks from Chinatown.

For that one glorious night before the new stripper poles were installed, we set up the projector to have Devdas and various highly decorated films projected on the back wall. People were loving it.

Our homegirl DJ WHO AM I was holding it down upstairs, with her psycho-festive russian setlist and ridiculously sexy body paint.

Raphlex & Mishka in the ice cage, Saturday nights! Mehanata Bulgarian Bar, 113 Ludlow btw Rivington & Delancey.
