Gypsy Beats and Balkan Bangers and its follow up Gypsy Beats and Balkan Bangers Too are two different compilations of Eastern European music tracks, compiled by DJs Russ Jones and Felix Buxton (of Basement Jaxx) released on Basement Jaxx's record label Atlantic Jaxx in 2006 (volume one) and 2007 (volume two). BBC Music said of the first volume "Sometimes, the marching programmed beats can be a touch insistent, but the wild..." [1] and Allmusic in their 3/5 star review said "Overall, there is plenty to spin and take in, and being marred by a couple of cuts near the end spoils nothing. Check it."[2]
