Kosta Kostov is back with some new collabs and a new approach on oriental gypsy roots and bass.On his new EP „Hasrat“ (Desire) on VLAD Records he is featuring the iranian duo Manushan, genious perfomers playing with flamenco, violin and great vocals. The recordings for „Hasrat“ were made in Kostas' studio in Cologne after a spontenious meeting and jam. „Svetlinata“ (The Light) is blending heavy bass with belly dance feeling. The violin hook was played by the romainian virtuose Vale. „Svetlinata“ features Katya Tasheva, bulgarian singer based in Berlin. Known for her wide variety of singing styles (jazz, soul and bulgarian folklore), she works with the bands Rotfront, Mr. Zarko and Human Sampler.
The four remixes on the EP dig the originals on a special way. Colombian maestro Bleepolar is bringing "Hasrat" in a beatifull housy percussive mood, just before the 1001st night falls, while Global Bass pistolero Rafa Aragon jiggles with moombahcore and organic harmonies. French electro producer Sauvage FM shakes „Svetlinata“ in a nice zouk bass riddim and VLAD boss Boris Viande knows how to blow you away with heavy synths. :::::: Artwork by André Fritz :::::
