The Dolomites, Stevhen Koji Iancu’nun 98'den beridir sürdürdüğü projesinin ismi. Romen köklerinin getirdiği Balkan havasını 8-bit, chiptune, glitch ve cumbia ile birleştirmiş. Ortaya çıkan müthiş çorba, peş peşe dinleme ihtiyacı hissettirip daha fazlasını istetiyor bünyeye. Daha evvelki releaselerini dinlememiştim ama eminim ki şimdi adamın diskografisini deşeceğim.
19 Eylül’de If The Kids Records’tan çıkacak bu EPye muhakkak kulak kabartın.
"The Dolomites have been an ongoing project since 1998 that have belted out an
amalgamation of styles extracted from around the globe: Europe, Japan, America and
South America. Founded by mastermind Stevhen Koji Iancu aka Stefanko Selecta (British
National of Japanese and Romanian decent) 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 from the UK in Pogues styles with Tom Waitsian accent, they later incorporated
Gipsy, Jazz and evil Disney sounds on the "Medicine Show E.P.", released in 2002. Dolomite
´s second album "Darumanian Chophouse" (2005), recorded and produced in Brooklyn,
NYC, brought out more Gipsy elements scrambled together with Japanese Enka and pop
style melodies. After the release Stevhen Koji also started working with diverse musical
projects, such as Gogol Bordello, Yerba Buena, Romashka, Mad Juana (Gipsy Voodoo
Stomp Lounge music), as well as with OPVC, a gamelan theatre from San Francisco."
