Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , on July 18, 2013 by dk


Da Lata unleash their sails once again with a new album entitled ‘Fabiola’ to be released on October 14th via Agogo Records.

Melding elements of Brazilian and African styles and rhythms with everything from folk, rock and psychedelia to spoken word, soul and dub, Da Lata are back this summer with new album ‘Fabiola’. The record draws on a worldwide family of performers including Mayra Andrade (Cape Verde), Miguel Atwood Ferguson (USA), Rich Medina (USA) Marcelo Janeci (Brazil) Luisa Maita (Brazil), Graveola (Brazil), Fabricio FBC (Brazil), Sacha Gabriel (Canada), Jason Yarde (UK), Finn Peters (UK) and Diabel Cissokho (Mali) who have all helped craft a record with a raw and live approach fusing Afro-Brazilian influences with a dance-floor sensibility and a distinctly London attitude.

2013 marks 20 years since Chris Franck and Patrick Forge first came together and began experimenting and redefining Brazilian music. Da Lata previously released two studio albums in 2000 and 2002 respectively followed by a remix album in 2004 all released through Chris Blackwell’s Island Records subsidiary, Palm Pictures working alongside and collaborating with label mates like Ernest Ranglin, Baaba Maal, Femi Kuti and Bebel Gilberto.

With a select cast of remixers set to reinterpret ‘Fabiola’, and a single set for a summer release, Da Lata are about to start a new chapter in their illustrious story. 20 years of Afro-Brazilian adventure and it ain’t over yet!

Adding an eclectic and collaborative edge to the current class of electronic music productions, one of San Francisco’s finest, Miguel Migs is set to release his much anticipated third album ‘Outside the Skyline’ on Om Records in partnership with Salted Music this September.

Migs has emerged from San Francisco’s deep house scene as an artist who transcends the stylistic limitations of genre in a way so very few have managed. In his own words, “I take inspiration from everything around me. Its not about trends or what’s fashionable, its about creative expression, quality, emotion and artistic integrity.”

Having released a clutch of highly acclaimed productions, including the well-received 2002 debut album ‘Colourful You’, which came out on the legendary Astralwerks label Migs’ latest effort, ‘Outside the Skyline’ is an intelligent, stunningly accomplished album that showcases not just a passion for quality, soulful melodies and intricate productions, but also a lush set of influences that stretch from early soul, dub and funk to house and Italo disco. This melting pot provides the backdrop to Miguel Migs’ 21st century take on house music.

Showcasing an extraordinary line up of creative and internationally renowned artists – Migs’ reputation is such that, when it came to recording ‘Outside The Skyline’, he was able to pull together come impressive collaborators including original disco diva Evelyn ‘Champagne’ King, reggae legends Capleton, Half-Pint and Freddie McGregor, first lady of musicianship Meshell Ndegeocello, Berlin based singer Georg Levin and bossa nova phenomenon Bebel Gilberto.

The result is an album that’s trademark Migs. Informed by house but no slave to metronomic dance floor rhythms and tempos. It takes influences from jazz, reggae, soul and more, with a heavy emphasis on high-quality song writing and equally high production values.

Outside the Skyline, promises to take you on a first class, round-trip journey inspired by a variety of musical genres and deeper electronic sounds.
A globetrotting A-List DJ, Miguel Migs will be taking his signature sound all over the world this summer. Stay posted for tour dates.

A Latin soul charmer” – Washington Post
Influenced by old-school masters like Wilson Pickett, Shuggie Otis, and
the Exciters, Rene encompasses the very soul of soul.”New York Post

Rene Lopez will release his new full-length, ELS, this July on Nat Geo Music.  The album’s title refers to a style Lopez has been developing over the past few years, a now-signature sound he calls “Electric Latin Soul.” The sound is a celebration of Rene’s dual identity as both a native New Yorker and a second generation Puerto Rican American, and mixes Latin soul and Boogaloo with rock, hip-hop and R&B, featuring a seductive blend of hypnotic rhythms and Rene’s undeniably soulful voice.  ELS features co-producers Mario Caldato Jr., a.k.a. Mario C (Beastie BoysJack Johnson, Bebel Gilberto) and Jason Lader (Julian Casablancas, Jenny Lewis), as well as special guests Joey Altruda, and Money Mark (John Butler Trio).
The son of Latin trumpet player René López, a founding member of the seminal Latin group Tipica 73, Rene Jr. grew up surrounded by both Latin music and urban pop. He spent his youth divided between salsa clubs where his father was performing, and the rock, r&b and hip hop music he and his peers enjoyed. His own musical career began playing drums, but it was his discovery of Prince that led him to pick up a wider range of instruments, and to step up to the microphone to sing.  Starting in college, Rene was the lead singer and songwriter for The Authority, a cult favorite in the early 90’s New York rock scene.
Eventually Rene began synthesizing his influences, combining rock and hip-hop with Boogaloo – a distinctly Nuyorcian sound that is rooted in mambo, soul, and R&B.  ELS is the natural result: A nod to Rene’s Latin roots, with an eye on modern electronic music and good ol’ rock-and-roll.
