Ocote Soul Sounds - Taurus - out on ESL Music

(CD/Digital) Eighteen Street Lounge Music ESL175, 2011-05-30

After winning a Grammy Award in 2011 and backing the Tony Award winning broadway show Fela! with their respective bands Grupo Fantasma and Antibalas Afrobeat Orchestra, Adrian Quesada and Martin Perna return to their sun-soaked Latin-psychedelia project Ocote Soul Sounds with their fourth studio album, Taurus. Like its bullish namesake, their latest album smashes through sonic barriers with a heavy and dynamic mix of pan-Latin flavour, conscious political attitude, afrobeat and hip-hop rhythms. Taurus was produced by Eric Hilton of Thievery Corporation at the Washington DC based ESL Music Studios and features vocal collaborations with fellow ESL Music regulars Natalia Clavier, Sitali, Verny Varela and Chico Mann. With soaring vocal anthems like Primavera, bass-bin rattling groovers like En El Temblor, red-hot Latin jams like Contigo Jamas, and even pensive Italian folk excursions like Nessuno, Taurus is Ocote Soul Sounds' most expansive and complete album to date!

We’ll be releasing a single “Pirata / Primavera” 45 rpm this month along with a mixtape with some remixes and previews of the album.

This is me and my man Martin Perna’s 4th record together and we’re pretty damn proud of it. It was recorded between Level One and the ESL studios in Washington, DC over a period of a few weeks with the mixing done primarily in DC. The record is our first time working with an outside producer and it was our pleasure to work with Eric Hilton of Thievery Corporation. Stay tuned for more info.
