The repertoire of Antwerp Gipsy-Ska Orkestra seems to be less and less limited to the restraints their band name imposes on them, as they once again prove on their new long player 'Duivelsblauw' ("devilish blue"). The title and (Dutch) song of the same name refer to the moment just before dawn, when the sky takes on an ominous deep blue color, and for the cover illustration the band once again called on the man also responsible for the cover of predecessor 'Black Panther': Romanian artist Paul Hitter. In songs like 'Insomnia' or 'It's Never Too Late', Antwerp Gipsy-Ska Orkestra still serve up their familiar mix of ska or reggae with Balkan rhythms, but 'Bhangra Love', a combination with rapper Clement 'Nerlock' Werom from Jahwed Family (who already made a first guest appearance on 'Kilo Gipsyska'), is reggae meets Indian bhangra meets French hip-hop, opener 'Jamileh' leans towards Turkish psychedelia (with front man Gregor Engelen seemingly bringing a short vocal ode to French icon Serge Gainsbourg), and in 'Take My Wrist' Gregor's voice reminded us somewhat of that of Canadian singer-songwriter Leonard Cohen. As always, Antwerp Gipsy-Ska Orkestra guarantees a mean party, but clearly also keeps evolving, thus managing to captivate yours truly time and time again!
