Label: Virgin Babylon Records Purchase: CD from Virgin Babylon (2000Yen) For a while now I have noticed a lot of interaction between the netlabel Bunkai-Kei (run by Go-qualia) and Virgin Babylon Records run by World’s End Girlfriend.

So, as you already know the tunes of Parov Stelar pretty much take over me. His infectious blending of 1930’s swing, ragtime and big band jazz with modern electronic beats is incredible.

So once again I am notoriously late, these guys toured here for WOMAD last year and just like how I missed a great opportunity with Beirut I also missed a great opportunity to see these guys play. After browsing some Parov Stelar similar artist’s on Lastfm the other day I decided to actually follow up … Continue reading
Parov Stelar’s second disc of his latest long player release “Coco” is an amalgamation of the territory he has covered as a club DJ over the past two years, everything he has melded together from jazz, swing and that retro soncialisation has been combined with the unique flavour of electro house emerging from the underground … Continue reading
