SuperDiverCity is Mec Yek's second full album. As you’d expect from Mec Yek’s origins, Super Diver City contains some musical surprises: twelve tracks, nine particular arrangements of traditional Roma-songs, two songs written by singers Katia and Milka and one Amy Winehouse-cover, translated into Romanès. Some songs show minimal orchestration, other pull out all the stops (now and then even with a Hammond organ). The band travels back to its nostalgic roots, from the early years with the Roma in Slovakia, to more contemporary and urban dub, ska, latin and soul. All nicely mixed together by Shazalakazoo, leading duo in Balkan Beats from Belgrade, Serbia, who delivered already in 2010 some surprising remixes of Jaune Toujours and Mec Yek tracks for the remix album RE:PLUGGED. But, against all expectations: Mec Yek is a gypsy band without violin.
