After pioneering the concept of Balkan clubbing with his now-legendary Bucovina Club parties and albums, after working his DJ voodoo around the world (and driving crowds to ecstatic bliss), after setting very high standards for dancefloor-oriented Gypsy music with his own seminal tracks and with his remixes of tracks by Mahala Rai Banda, Taraf de Haidouks and more…

…Shantel has now moved on to the next step with the fab Disko Partizani! album, which lays the groundwork for a new brand of pop music. This is the sound of new Europe, centered in the middle of our old continent, but incorporating vibrant influences from the emerging new frontier which stretches all the way to Mitteleuropa, the South East, Greece, Turkey and beyond…

Disko Partizani! sees Shantel successfully synthesizing his experiences as a producer, musician and DJ to create catchy, energetic and festive pop songs, full of hooks and surprises. The album features great performances by a host of musicians from southeast Europe and by Shantel himself, who also appears on lead vocals, gracing several tracks with an unexpected, elegant deadpan delivery.

ABOUT SHANTEL

Former Frankfurt downtempo pioneer, today celebrated impressario of the famous Bucovina Club and considered Europe's chief selector DJ for ecstatic Balkan grooves. With his release "Bucovina Club", he showed that a boundary-free spirit of Balkan and South Eastern Europe music tunes was what a world, bored of luke warm electronica and a retromanic dancefloor culture, was waiting for: Big emotions, vodka excesses, passion and plenty of slack lyrics, all blend together into a splendid 65 min mix compilation. Bucovina Club is probably the most promising party and music concept since the advent of acid house. Believe it! Shantel is currently working on tracks for a new 12" plus more material, all to be released on "Bucovina Club 2", out in 2005
