"The Balkan Express Dance Journey"

Listening to Dj Kosta Kostov's brand new dj set is like a journey on the Balkan Express, where instead of looking through the imaginary windows of the speeding cars, we can open our ears to relentlessly and infinitely stunning beauty and energy of traditional music of south-eastern Europe. Whether it is the sound of Roma brass bands, the rhythms of frenzied, passionate dances such as racenitza, horo or cocek, they are all nicely counterbalanced by crispy breakbeat and drum'n'bass beats, which makes the Kostov's mosaic alluring both for clubbing afficionados and people bound emotionally with the realm of world music.� - Maciek Szabatowski, WORLD TOP UP/Radio LUZ (Wroclaw/Poland)

"Balkanization on the Dancefloor"

“Born in Varna, dj, resident for more than one decade in Cologne, Germany, DJ Kosta Kostov absolutely drove crazy the Athenian public with his extraordinaire balkanXpress set. Kosta Kostov combines on a elaborate and “uplifting� way the musical inheritance of his place of origin and the rest of Balkans (Bulgarian voices, gypsy orchestras) with electronica, funk, hip hop, reggae ,while his musical blend includes also other musical styles from the all world (bhangra, maghreb, brazl etc)." - Manos Tzanikakis, KOKKINO Radio (Athens/Greece)
