Fresh from the mixing desk, the Jstar remix of the title track to the Dzambo Agusevi Orchestra's most recent album "Brasses for the Masses".

Jstar on his remix:

"After the success of my "Balkan Reggae" remix, Asphalt Tango Records have asked me to do another remix. Now I don't really have a large knowledge of Balkan, Gypsy, Sinti, Klezmer and other music in a similar style but I do think its a great to dance and let off some steam to. So I make no apologies to purists!

Džambo Aguševi Orchestra are megastars in their home country of Macedonia and I hope they love this mashup.

Over 10 years ago in London I was working on a remix of a 1950's track which I called "Kebab". Some vocal parts - "aaaahy-ah!" - that I recorded with my flatmate and then girlfriend are thrown into this, along with bass clarinet, jangly percussion from an Egyptian film, and some acid synths from that track.

First of all I changed the beats from the original for a more syncopated style. Then I played in some rolling drum toms that reminded me of The Tornados.
To compliment the brass textures, I invited the brilliant violinist Daniel Weltlinger (who plays with Lulu Reinhardt / Radio Django etc) to answer some of the brass phrases in the way only someone with that knowledge and authenticity can.
