Erik Sumo dj mix - The Wise Ragout
April 02 2010
Disco / Surf Rock / Freak beat / Cumbia / World Music
Ambrus Tövisházi aka Erik Sumo, Budapest, Hungary based band leader, producer and occasional disc jockey cooked this set of unusual dance tunes. From Japanese folk to Cumbia, from Post punk to Balkan Disco. Back in 2005, Tövisházi introduced himself with his laid back western folk dub album "My Rocky Mountain" under the Erik Sumo pseudonym. By now, his Erik Sumo Band is s seven-strong project and their new album "The Trouble Soup" released on german label Le Pop Musik is a bubbling cauldron of great Pop-anthems. Explosive synthesizers, Eastern Bloc-ado, Indie and Progressive in three-minute operas, that could have been penned by the Flaming Lips or the B 52's.
