<<< Gypsy Hill (UK) >>>
We love these guys and are very, very happy to have them back on stage for our first BalKanKan of 2013!!!
Starting out as a producer duo, the Gypsy Hill live band soon grew to a 8 piece beats and brass extravaganza - the band have a fast-growing reputation for their high energy shows - with big screen visuals and dancers also thrown into the mix.  Gypsy Hill invited fans to shake their assess up and down the country at some of the UK's biggest summer festivals such as The Big Chill, Bestival, Lovebox Weekend, a main stage slot at Shambala Festival, BoomTown Fair and Jelly Festival. Over the summer the band also found the time to play a number of riotous shows in Europe – taking in France, Belgium, Italy, Romania, Germany, Switzerland, Hungary (Sziget festival).
Having had their remix Al Jawala released in 2011 on Jawa Records and one of their tunes included on the latest Balkan Beats compilations, Gypsy Hill are now taking time to work on the debut album!! Watch this space!


<<< Boris Viande (FR) >>>
DJ and a trumpeter... all in one at any given time! Spreading good vibes wherever he goes, Boris Viande plays festivals, concert halls, old creepy bars, town squares, and even your living room! Our special guest from France is also a talented producer with 3 Balkan Boombastic EPs on his own label VLAD. These also feature original tracks from French electro Balkan artists such as DJ Stanbul, Vladivostok and Sauvage FM. Regular EP release parties take place at La Dame de Canton (Paris) which have seen likes of European DJs such as Ion Din Anina, DJ Shefitza and Neki Stranac.
