The Most Beautiful Girl In Istanbul
Undead In Istanbul
Reviewed by BravoMarco
DJ performing a live set, with two bonus tracks. A Croatian version of Fatboy Slim – Certainly sounds to be influenced by the English supremo. The beats are pumped out & the words sound pretty good alongside them. Prefer when the DJ doesn’t speak in English. Must have been recorded straight from the mixer, as there is no crowd reaction.
FCC’s on the *“Wishful Thinking” track
1) Live set (31:40)
Little Sister Of Mine - Softly spoken intro - repeated lines
Zdena-Dikson – (00.48) Version of Bo Diddley mixed with a nice beat –
Razgovor Z Bogum (4.13) Very Fatboy Slim – Has the beat & half sung / speech.
U Lice Si Mi Pljunula (6.35) Old school beats with EPMD getting a look in.
Katerina (10.00) Repetitive beats – Nice & bouncy.
Batman (12.28) Funky bass with English words.
*Wishful Thinking (14.56) Faster faster…Euro hand banging pop…(fuckin’)
Music Lover (17.43) Chilled out with reggae undertones – Happy Monday’s-ish
Latujuci DJ Zdena (20.07) Military beats with a more ominous feel. Nice.
Kaje, Staje, Caje (23.31) Mellow dance track, with plenty of samples.
Primitivo (25.44) Staying close to the original – Brave track to cover. It works.
Istanbul (27.49) “Istanbul is not the problem – Brooklyn is problem” Good use of the hook line.
2) The Most Beautiful Girl Of Istanbul-Kidagain (1:24) Slower ode, lyrics in English over pleasant enough music.
3) The Most Beautiful Girl Of Istanbul-Babilonci (3:56) Stronger beats with echo effects. Vocals in English, doesn’t quite go with the tune (for me) Similar in many ways to Big Audio Dynamite.
