Born out of the ashes of Darkwood Dub, one of the Balkans’ most revered alternative rock bands during the ‘90s/’00s, Bella Technika is the latest project of Bojan Drobac, the group’s guitarist and main songwriter. Joined by former bandmate bass player Milorad Ristić as well as opera singer Katarina Jovanovic, amongst others, Bojan has found a new direction with Bella Technika.
Bella Technika join forces with Super Weird Substance for Substance Select Vol.2, which features a trio of remixes by Greg & Ché Wilson, Peza and Henry Greenwood and an original production from the band’s debut ‘Section’ LP, released last year.
Continuing their prolific form, GW and CW provide the first remix, taking album opener ‘Reinvented Daily’ into psychedelic territory with vocoder and dub fx.
Up next, Henry Greenwood provides a wonky, idiosyncratic version of ‘Heat Control’, slicing the hypnotically repeated vocals in and out of his chugging psychedisco groove.
The EP finishes up with the original fully titled ‘Suddenly I Feel So Light’, exhibiting the live band / electronic fusion that established their reputation across Europe.
