David Starfire

This long-haired dude from California looks like he should be in a hair metal band but I love his productions. Heavy on the bass but not just for the sake of it. He certainly knows how to create great rhythms and dirty basslines.

This isn't my favourite of his tunes, but is the best video to date of his and features the delectable Sharon Kihara. Definitely one for the tribal fusion girls ...


I love this cat. He's from the former Yugoslavia and his tongue-in-cheek gun-slinging Balkan tunes get me every time. Note: listen behind the cheeky facade and sometimes you'll find extremely poignant lyrics...

This fantastic tune was taken from his last album ... do I detect House Of The Rising Sun in there?... Without doubt, but that Balkan/Mariachi horn action does the damage ...

Amsterdam Klezmer Band

I love these guys. Another band we used on Waltzes, Glitches & Brass. This is a much older track but one of their best.
