If you want something really different, something that touches proper jazz, 2step and dancehall then this ones for you. Munchies gets a re-working from I-Wolf heading straight for the dancefloor. You also get the added bonus on this twelve of the live version and original too for the jazz heads. It’s just out there.

MARK 'XANGO' @ satelliet /OOG radio
Munchies sounds devastating. Especially the I-Wolf ft. DJ Collage remix will stay in my bag for a long time. Man, what a tune! Fresh, dubby and a topnotch jazzy feel as always with the CS-releases... Great! Played it yesterday on the show... Had callers immediately: "What is this?"

PHIL DARIMONT @ metronomic-family.de
Very nice surprise Coming from my man Zeljko…
Really like the vibe of the original and especially the live version which is even more powerful in my ears...I Wolf mix is nice but not catching much of my interest...Charted already for 3 weeks and will be playlisted in the next weeks for sure...

BELGRADEYARD SOUND SYSTEM - Munchies - Cosmic Sounds 4/5
More boundary squishing jazzuals from Zeljko Kerleta's Cosmic Sounds label. He's unearthed some fab Eastern-European jazz and fusion, old and new, over the past few years, and this keeps up the quality. The I-Wolf remix featuring DJ Collage is the one, a fat, noisy reggae dancehall-jazz mash-up with crisp drums, wailing baritone sax and 'dem pure ustla' style vocals making this a surprisingly infectious throwdown. Could be a bit of a leftfield crossover hit.

DUSTY GROOVE AMERICA
A darkly brooding jazzy number that's very much in the best spirit of work on the Cosmic Sounds label -- partly steeped in the groundbreaking European jazz styles of the 70s, but also put together with a real ear for the 21st century dancefloor! The original mix has a fair bit of beats in line with some searing, searching sax solos -- but the live version features the whole track played as one righteous jazz number -- with sax bits that would sound right at home on early 70s Impulse Records!

MARK PHILLIPS @ solar radio
A1: Really interesting concept! Really interesting Sound!; A2: Splendid production, a crazy mixture of sound ; B1: Who made this tune? talent that deserves succes!

JON FREER
The eastern European broken mafia continues its invasion, with this tribute to hunger on Zeljko's uncategorisable London label. The original sees a barrage of 'mouth music' coat blazing horns, intense brass and hitting beats. The 'Live Version' is a rattlingly percussed version, where a flying flute/pipe type thing soars over confrontational horns, alone keys and a controlled bass. I-Wolf brings in DJ Collage for his mix, and the artistic spinner adds curious vocals on top of I-Wolf's mechanical bass and industrial horns.

MR. BATOO for jazzbreak
Groupe composé a la base de plusieurs DJS, Goran Simonoski (programmation), Relja Bobic (programmation) et Ivan Antic (contrebasse), Munchies est un morceau classic-jazzy avec Dusan Petrovic au sax' qui rejoint l'esprit du label Cosmic Sounds.
Sur ces 3 versions, ce titre est remanié de telle sorte qu'on y retrouve un mix de styles impressionnants. Du jazz, à l'electro en passant par des rythmes Dancehall sur le remix de I Wolf accompagné de lyrics par Mister DJ Collage tout y est, une tuerie !
Un son des années 70 qui renoue avec le dancefloor c'est plutot excellent à écouter croyez moi !

PICADILLY RECORDS
London's Cosmic Sounds present a challenging 12" from Yugoslavia's Belgradeyard Sound System, a nu jazz troupe who provide out-there contemporary jazz breaks onthe original "Munchies" and a even more strung out live version! The I-Wolf remix introduces harder stepping breaks and a raw ragga MC for an extra dimension

GUINESS RECORDS
ヨーロッパのレアグルーヴ・ジャズを編纂したコンピレーション、リイシュー、そしてArkestra Oneをはじめとした新譜音源も積極的にリリースするロンドンを拠点としたレーベルCosmic SoundからBelgradeyard Sound Systemの12inchがドロップ!!軽快に疾走するパーカッションに豪快名ホーンが炸裂するアフロテイストに溢れたオリジナルバージョンに加え、 オーガニックなライブバージョン、そして激しく疾走するブロークンビーツにトライバルなアフロボイスが絡むSide.BのRemixも素晴らしい一枚!


MICHAEL STUKES (virgin megastore - times sq/whcr 90.3fm/dj times)
excellent production. high on requests for ALL versions. works well in lounge/club/radio format/settings. HIGHEST PRAISE!

GERRY BAYLY
BSS's Munchies is like Matthew Herbert meets Paul Murphy at Dingwalls; now you can't get much[ies] bettter than that.

GERRY HECTIC @ fly.co.uk
'Munchies’ has a new, fresh and vibrant feel whilst at the same time being intrinsically non-commercial. It's got some fantastic freeform sax playing and solid double bass action at extra fast jazz dance shuffle. Cosmic Sounds boss Zeljko Kerleta explains, "BGYSS has made noticeable progress since their first release on Belgrade’s Burning Vol. 2 compilation ('There's Always Someone') by moving from a pure sample based production to a live band orientated both in production and gigs”. Comparing the studio and 'live' versions on the a-side, there's nothing between them except 59 seconds and a more manic approach on the latter; isn't this what jazz is all about? So to the B-side. Zeljko says, “I-Wolf did a great job on the B-side by giving us the first hybrid of ragga-muffin/free-jazz combination that I’ve ever heard. It’s a daring combination that I wouldn’t dream of and it works". Fans of Megablast and Stereotyp Meets Al Haca will feel this as DJ Collage does his DJ toasting stylee thing. Excellent reviews of this 12” might not have been matched by excellent sales so be warned, get it now before you're clicking at 'Add to Wantlist'.
