Batov Records proudly presents our takeover at The Magic Garden. From Friday, 17th November we will be back at The Magic Garden every 3 months, bringing you our finest artists and more...

***The Great Malarkey***
The Great Malarkey are a riot of gypsy, folk, punk, ska and cabaret. This is raucous, high-energy balkan mayhem born from the stories of friends, lovers, riots, night terrors and the Dalston job centre. These are the kids you didn’t mess with on the playground, and you wouldn’t mess with them now: an instrumental call to arms with lyrics that simultaneously sling an arm around your shoulders and punch you in the stomach.

***Chavo***
Chavo is a London based band, initially formed as a Balkan recital outfit playing acoustic music to seated audiences. Very quickly the audiences began to stand up and the show times moved from 3pm to 3am. Sweating it out on the oom-pah music circuit became the norm, and after many years Chavo felt a desire for change. They waved goodbye to the traditional material (often sung in Roma or Serbian) and crafted an album of original songs in their home tongue – English. A change in line up and instrumentation also followed as they caught up with the technology of the 1970’s. What appears to have distilled from this epic journey is both imaginative and intriguing. A percussion heavy, mandolin infused, vintage keys indie band with seductive female bv’s, pounding bass lines, 4-floor dance rhythms and harmonic discord – a firm footing in the west with a nod to the east.

***DJ Kobayashi***
DJ Kobayashi is been digging for music around the world, you could say it’s his full time job!
Anything that got a groove and the right melodies makes him pick the records.
His style varies from Mediterranean / Middle Eastern sounds to the Balkans and east Europe, however he is not foreign to the electronic beats, “Its start to get really interesting when you get producers/DJ mixing old sound with new beats”.
He is also a member of Gypsy Hill, where they combining balkan beats and Mediterranean grooves.
