    All the selections on this best-of compilation focus on the high-energy side of the music, but that's no bad thing, and it's enough to make a listener sweat just from the speed and breakneck precision of it all -- it's not just father and son who are outstanding, it's the whole band.

    Serves as an excellent introduction to the power and eclecticism of this veteran Balkan brass band. [No. 89, p.52]

    Combining Latin rhythms, call-and-response vocals and funk stings, the brass'n'bass music of the Marković Orkestar relies on pure fury and sexuality in a genre built upon romantic passion and tradition.

    This greatest hits comp (selected by BalkanBeats' DJ Robert Soko) showcases their party tunes such as the breakneck signature romp through Hava Naguila and the blistering flugelhorn ska of Khelipe E Cheasa... as well as their successful ventures further afield.

    These guys claim to be mad crazy; they just don't sound like it here. Their largely instrumental songs are about parties, but they don't bring the party itself. They've premeditated every "Hep!" and "Hey!" [But] that's not to say I couldn't listen to them for a while.
