Yemanjo drops new downtempo/organic house album, “La Misma Fuente”

The 10-track release is out now via Wonderwheel Recordings.

Yemanjo is a trumpet player and electronic music producer who just released his new album, ‘La Misma Fuente’.

The album covers a range of electronic music genres, but focuses mainly on organic house. It also features downtempo, electronica and Afro house. It’s an uplifting release inspired by the music of Latin America and Africa.

Along with the instruments and production by Yemanjo, the release also features contributions from guest singers and musicians from places like Mali, Colombia, Argentina and Hungary.

This invigorating release comes via Wonderwheel, but Yemanjo’s music has also been released via other respected record labels such as Cafe De Anatolia, trndmsk, Cosmic Awakenings, and Camel Riders.

Each of the tracks on this release has an uplifting mood with earthy percussion and live instrumentation. Some of the tracks are more electronic than others, “Bululú” for example is tightly sequenced with rhythmic vocal samples.

Others such as, “Baobab” are focused more on live instruments such as trumpets, ngonis, guitars and vocals. There is also the reggae influenced “Janfa,” which has chugging rhythms and vocals by Mariam Koné.

Also featuring on the album is Spanish vocalist Freddy Velasquez, and Yemanjo also provides vocals on some of the tracks too.
