Ion din DorobantiIon Din Dorobanți is one of the many monikers of the ubiquitous producer Ion Dumitrescu from Bucharest. His 7″ single on Pingipung shows the oriental influences on bass music in his hometown.

This release carries the Manele, Romania’s wedding music which has dominated contemporary pop for 30 years, towards new sonic realms. Side A features a radical Afro-electro rework of Alex Puștiu’s “Mi-E Poftă De Tine Rău”.

Ion din Dorobanți’s original production on the other side is a track pulsating on a 9/8 groove infested with synth nostalgia, all is spiced up by Nicu Chinezu’ on clarinet.
