The latest offering from Balkan Beat Box’s fifth studio album, Shout It Out is a brand new video of the single, “Kum Kum” featuring Yemenite Israeli sister-trio, A-WA whose vocals add a bit of feminine charm to an otherwise rhythmically complex track.
In addition to the music video, there are three forthcoming remixes of “Kum Kum” that bring Balkan Beat Box into another sphere, by expanding the single into an electronica dream. The first remix is from Serbian electronica duo Shazalakazoo, whose own music is spiced with flavors from the Balkans. The second is by Israeli DJ Yanivi who is part of Zebra Music Agency in Tel Aviv and topped the Beat Port charts with his track "Rock This Joint". Also delivering a remix and part of Zebra Music Agency in Tel Aviv is DJ BrainDeaD whose last remix was dubbed one of the best songs of 2016 by Diplo.
Lastly, “Kum Kum” has been synched in an international television and digital ad campaign for Motorola’s Moto x4, which was recently unveiled in Berlin. This blasts BBB into the stratosphere, linking their cleverly swirling track with the fresh face of the Moto x4, and the individuality it embodies. Watch the ad here.
About Balkan Beat Box:
For over a decade, Balkan Beat Box has crafted wildly imaginative grenades of enlightenment and garnered critical acclaim, an engaged fan-base, and earned the respect and admiration of other artists. The collective’s latest dance missive, Shout It Out, is an epiphanic entry in its five-album catalog. It’s an album of personal reflection ensconced in fiery creativity—it’s both anthemic and introspective. Musically, Shout It Out, also represents a fascinating crate digging production breakthrough in terms of crafting that perfectly exotic sonic Molotov cocktail.
Their previous work has been sampled by Jason Derulo and rapper Mac Miller (produced by Diplo), they’ve collaborated with Stargate on Fifth Harmony’s song “Worth It” and Rhianna’s theme in the animated film, Home. BBB have also been featured on Bomba Estereo’s new album. Their music most recently appeared in FIFA 17 and in the Andy Samberg movie Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping. In addition, as a collective and individually, members of BBB have worked with platinum-certified artist Asaf Avidan, Yemenite singing trio A-WA, and had placements in numerous other Hollywood feature films.
