Various Artists Osunlade Presents The Yoruba Soul Mixes
- Words: Derek Beres
- Label: BBE-Rapster
A devotee of Yoruba culture, NY-based producer Osunlade offers a broad definition of soul throughout this 12-track remix album. Crafted by his dexterous fingers, the multi-instrumentalist and spiritual wanderer gives a gorgeous touch to Mali‘s "Golden Voice," Salif Keita, and wittingly lifts Cape Verdean Césaria Évora‘s morna from the deep blues. Further facelifts to Roy Ayers and Shazz add solid grooves to sweet melodies, but when tweaking cuts by Keziah Jones, Spacek and 4hero, his soul light plunges existing mediocrity into further abyss.
