When I reviewed the excellent Central Isteric PASS/PORT album (on czaszka (rec.)) earlier this year, I mentioned that I didn’t have much of a grasp on Romanian experimental music. After publishing the review, Gili Mocanu (the brains behind Central Isteric) and I struck up a conversation on Twitter about what’s going on in his home country. He gave a few pointers and I started digging. Then, a few days later he sends over a link to a mix from Scoromide – another stellar Romanian artist – for Foxy Digitalis of all Romanian music. I listen to it. It rules. Now it’s everyone else’s turn.
Scoromide can be found on Soundcloud.
