Ocote Soul Sounds - A Pesar La Vida feat. Quantic & Chico Mann (7", Wonderwheel Recordings, 2016)

The last time Antibalas was in Paris, we had the chance to listen to a few new tracks from the Ocote Soul Sounds project - extracted from recent recording sessions gathering Martin Perna (Antibalas), Adrian Quesada (Brownout/Echocentrics) and Quantic (Tru Thoughts) — three of the most talented producers of their generations working together! After many months' wait, here's finally some vinyl news of those sessions, just a little 45 for the moment — the A-side of which furthermore opens the CD compilation 'Turntables On The Caribbean' — but always this ultimate fusion of afrobeat and psychedelic latin funk, out of time and deliciously addictive.

French Review :
Nous avions eu la chance d'entendre lors du dernier passage d'Antibalas à Paris DJs quelques nouveaux morceaux du projet Ocote Soul Sounds - issus de sessions regroupant Martin Perna (Antibalas) - Adrian Quesada (Brownout/Echocentrics) et Quantic (Tru Thoughts) - soit trois des producteurs/musiciens parmi les plus talentueux de leur génération. Après de long mois d'attente - voici enfin des nouvelles discographiques: juste un petit 45t pour l'instant - qui ouvre par ailleurs la compilation CD "Turntables on the Caribbean" - mais toujours cette fusion ultime d'afrobeat et de latin funk psychédélique - hors du temps et délicieusement addictive.
