Outrageous Scottish party music.
Pumping out a third slab of untamed Celtic electro beat for your ears and feet, supercharging the trademark grooves, samples and loops with stunning live playing by top Scottish musicians.
Old and new tunes, synthesised and realised with style and volume - a blast of inventive musical hooliganry!
Driving fiddle, swaggering pipes, feral guitars and wailing whistles plus pumping beats bass and keys all combine to make Hotel Kaledonia one of the most unsitdownable Celtic albums of the year.
An incredible mix of sounds, styles and rhythms - with a beat to suit the most energetic club dancer!
In 1998 Greentrax released the Keltik Elektrik Edinburgh Hogmanay Party Mix, directed at the dance, club and party scenes - the second album (Just When You Thought It Was Safe to Sit Down...) was released in November 2000.
As before, the musician behind the project is multi-instrumentalist Jack Evans (guitar, whistles, melodica, programming) of Jock Tamson's Baims, Easy Club and Cauld Blast Orchestra fame.
With Finlay MacDonald (bagpipes, whistle), Chris Stout (fiddle), Ken McBeth (synth), Gordon Duncan (bagpipes) and Tony Cuffe (guitar, vocals).
"If you are at a party on 31st December at about 11.55pm and waiting with baited breath for the New Year ahead with a glass of champagne or two in your hand, and thinking 'what music can I put on the hi-fi?'... Well, help is at hand." (Hot Gossip, UK)
