review: Logosamphia - Les Sonates Du Neopolka


You might know Logosamphia from the Enfant Terrible releases 'Kamp Holland' and 'Passage Omni'. On the 'Kamp Holland' compilation there is a weird and twisted electronic track... a bit like Kania Tieffer playing some circus tune... 'Passage Omni' on the other hand is an ambient release done with the Omnichord. The cd 'Les Sonates Du Neopolka' is something different again... but it is also very much Logosamphia...

The title already suggests we are dealing here with Neo Polka music... this is in your face wild party music with elements of Balkan folk... and even though it could compete with the more trendy stuff around in this style Logosamphia gives it his own twist with the wild, crazy and weird touches all over... but without killing the dancefloor potential of most of the tracks...

Next to the simple fact this is great dance music it is also folk music done in a contemporary way. You feel and hear traditional elements but they are served in different ways... sometimes sample based, sometimes done with electronic means (electronic melodies and rhythms) and sometimes it is just there in the mood and feel of the music... funny considering the musician himself is from Iran not from Bulgaria, Yugoslavia or any other country in the Balkan region...

Self released by Logosamphia in a limited numbered edition of 70 copies it is a true collector piece... nice of course, but maybe also a bit of a shame as the music is true party music which could entertain quite some more people I think... or at least it should!

I have some copies in the Enfant Terrible webshop here...

Here is a full track... enjoy!
