Given the success of The Very Polish Cut-Outs re-edit series in breathing new life into forgotten musical gems from Poland's past, it's heartening to see Vehicle aiming to do the same to vintage Yugoslav disco via the Ex-Yu series. This second installment comes from B.G Baarregaard (under the new Disco El Pogia moniker) and Serbian record collector Funky Junkie, who join forces to rework to previously unknown Balkan nuggets. Opener "Wandering" is sweet and groovy, with indigenous vocals riding triumphant horns and razor-sharp strings. While there are a few contemporary production tricks - think filters and a chunkier groove - it's a pleasingly respectful rework. "Weekend Phobia" is, if anything, even better, stretching out and rearranging a hearty chunk of disco-funk-meets-AOR brilliance.
