Fresh music: Novika and Smolik
Posted by: Michał In: cultural beast
Looking for new musical inspiration? Look east. After my recent post on new Polish folk/rock music, time to introduce a bit of electronica.
Here are two people who are not afraid to experiment with electro, jazz, house and anything in between, Smolik and Novika.
Smolik started his career in a Polish band called Wilki, but quickly became known as a talented multi-instrumentalist and composer. He has collaborated with a wide variety of Polish musicians, including Michal Urbaniak (if you’re into jazz, you should be familiar with his hame).
Smolik has released three albums so far. The first song below is his collaboration with Novika, a Polish singer and radio presenter (who’s recently released an album called Tricks of Life – haven’t heard it yet, but it came highly recommended):
The other song is from my favourite Smolik CD, Three.
As always, curious to know what you’ve thought.
