If you’ve spent any time playing FIFA 17 (and judging by the ridiculous sales figures, there’s a decent chance you have), you will have heard Balkan Beat Box’s infectious gypsy punk.


While you’ve been perfecting your championship-winning formations, I Trusted You has been keeping those million-dollar toes tapping. But soundtracking the top-of-the-table video game is only the beginning for this Israeli-born, New York-based trio.


Tamir Muskat, Ori Kaplan and Tomer Yosef released new album Shout It Out on their own Monkey Business label in November this year. The new LP marked a renewed desire to take their unique mix of musical traditions and modern sensibilities (think Klezmer and Balkan folk fused with hip-hop and dancehall beats) to the masses. Multiple millions of online streams for I Trusted You is clearly helping that ambition come to fruition.


Get to know Balkan Beat Box a little better and check out exclusive performances of Shout It Out (from 02:22) and I Trusted You (from 08:14) in the player below. This video contains language some may find offensive.
