about

Panonija refers to the ancient Roman Province that today marks the region where Subotika hail from, in northern Serbia. The album infuses rhythms from the pair’s past with a modern techno aesthetic, as heard on opening track ‘Ronin’ which builds into a shimmering hypnotic groove and ‘Prozivka’ which draws from a more minimal palette, yet still maintains elements of their own cultural heritage.

No prizes for guessing where ‘I’ll Be Your’ gets it’s house groove from but Subotika have made an intriguing interpretation of one of house music’s indisputable classics. ‘Club Door’ has a more driving edge that reminds of more recent KMS and Octave One productions whilst ‘Folklore’ and ‘Space Nomad’ are harder to pin down, infusing elements from all over techno’s rich tapestry.

‘Evolving’ is, in terms of dancefloor sweat, undeniably the album’s peak. Punching basslines build and build to bursting point before spilling over into the night. ‘From Afar’ runs deeper, even verging on trance before the aptly titled ‘In Detroit’ rounds off a sterling debut album with its subtle and more soulful approach.

Subotika’s unique sound combines the percussive influence of their region’s past with the learned rhythms born and raised tens of thousands of miles away in Detroit. As the pair continue to struggle for a better tomorrow, ‘Panonija’ is a massive step towards putting Subotika on the global dance music map.
