All the fourteen tracks building their music were recorded on analog equipment with rare vintage instruments at Mato studio in Paris. Influenced by the Nuyorican’s maestros from the seventies, the band was also keen to create his own Futuristic-Latin-Soul sound. Going through a long and meticulous recording process, the band deeply wanted to focus on the “Sound”, and they trusted to do so. Known as a DJ Vas member of Electro-Funk band , he’s mixed the entire album with his famous skills for deep analog Kojack sound and dancefloor club energy.
From the successful live experience and the great human meeting between Orlando Julius and Setenta’s members, followed a strong desire to record together. Quickly they decided to rearrange his famous “Ijo song, taken from the Soul” Super Afro Soul album he recorded in 1966 for Philips. A song which blew the king James brown himself during his trip in Nigeria in 1970 and influenced him for the composition of his “I Feel Good“ classic. This track perfectly sum up the rich energy and raw power bubbling in the Orlando Julius compositions, effortlessly blending together Afro Soul and Yoruba swing. Now here comes Ijo Soul 2013!
Led and composed collectively, the album straddles Latin, Soul, Hip-Hop, Funk, modern creative Jazz, and psychedelic Boogaloo, with a percussive and strong vocal section. The album also contains two covers that reflect the eclecticism of the band. First they decided to take on the Hip-Hop classic, interpreting the original Galt MacDermot’ Woo Hah!!! Got You All In Check composition with a funky Mambo version - and Busta Rhymes flies to the tropics! - Then the smash hit Smells like teen spirit by Nirvana, is revisited with a massive Boogaloo touch, ready to hit radios (playlisted on FIP and Radio Latina among others) and dancefloors from all over the world.
With this pulsating and rhythmic album, SETENTA gives us a modern definition of Salsa and Funk.
The Funky Latin Band from Paris is back with a second explosive album, which sounds like a future masterpiece of Latin Soul!
