Placebo ‎– Polk | Balek (Vinyl 7")

Label: Matasuna Rec

Cat No: MSR022

"Polk" is opening the single and couldn't be a better start: the irresistible groove digs deep into the ear. Marc Moulin's virtuoso piano playing wafts around the driving wah-wah guitar, the bass line and the beats. The brass section sneaks in discreetly to create a grandiose sound spectrum. Jazz-Funk at its best!

Without a doubt, "Balek" is one of the most extraordinary tunes on the album and rightly enjoys cult status not only among rare groove collectors. But also in the Hip Hop scene Balek is a hot joint – e.g. El Da Sensei or Mos Def have dropped their rhymes on this beat. Obscure synthesizer soundscapes with psychedelic sounds, supersweetened keys, unique brass passages and kicking drums give the song a magical aura. Great!
