The suggestion of late nights and early morning light is never far from possibility as these smoky, emotionally soulful rhythms seduce you while celebrating the labels 100th release. Los Tambores Te Llaman is presented in an array of mixes (including the Osunlade original) and is now accompanied by an English language version, but whatever your choice may be the depths of Carlos Mena’s spoken word are truly satisfying. The sound of brisk drums lift the grooves alongside a gentle sprinkle of atmospheric keys and percussionist Tony Rosa adds fire to the imagination with the Casamena mixes hitting heights. Alternatively if you want it stripped down to bare basics then both acapella’s are included in all their glory.
Release: March 6
