"Remixed Estrada" is a collection of "Lil'Estrada" LP's tracks remixes.

"The appeal of retospection lies at the heart of another new release from the excellent Malkovic and their so-called "indie-lounge" EP, "Remixed Estrada." The outfit is a foursome: Sasha T. (guitars), Dima M. (bass), Alesha G. (guitars, keyboards, vocals), and Ivan S. (drums). They're inspired by Berlin's Contriva, who - by their own admission - pen the kind of music that's designed to make a human voice "unnecessary." Add to this the smooth Brazilian bossa nova of Marcos Valle and Soviet soft jazz of Mikhail Tarverdiev. Tariverdiev's career takes us back into the heart of Brezhnevian Russia and the MOR/lounge soundtracks of the socialist '60s and '70s. Looking at his influence together with the issues discussed thus far of maturation, it would seem that emotional damage, done in the present, can be avoided by looking back at the diminutive (perhaps self-delusional!) adventures of one's childhood. Looking even further into the past, beyond one's birth, even, to the time of Tariverdiev, the general soundscape appears to be one of endlessly remixed soft-jazz, where melodies improvise freely and make the need for pushy human voices totally "uncessary." A small voice is the sound of safety; the sound of silence is safer still. Especially in a blissful state that's somewhere between "waking up" and "falling asleep."

Malkovic as a band started in 2005. Initially it was an acoustic duo (alesha G. & sasha T.), but then some new people came to the band and brought in new instruments, malkovic's sound became louder and more spacious, but has always been keen for lounge with an atmosphere of chamber music.
The lyrics are as diverse as the music: the band has songs written in Russian, English and French.
