New Release: Sofree "Raíces Distintas" EP

Sofree was born in 2016, as a result of the great chemistry between Yasmeen Quintana (voice, arrangements) and Freemachinist (production, artistic direction). She was born in Spain of a mother from Argentina and a father from Palestine, he grew up in France where he was immersed into Hip Hop culture. When they met in Barcelona in 2014 the complicity of their musical universes was evident.

Their debut EP "Raíces Distintas" is the first fruit of a coming together of two powerful musical forces. The project reflects the mixture of their influences and styles, on one side the groove of Hip-Hop and Soul and on the other, the omnipresent Latin and Afro-Caribbean rhythms. This mesmerizing and multifaceted atmosphere reinvents itself on each track, with only one thing in common: the smooth voice of Yasmeen Quintana sliding on Freemachinist’s sharp productions.

Following several years frequenting Barcelona’s vibrant jam session scene, Yasmeen met numerous significant artists who participated in the project like Cuban saxophonist Julio Carbonell, the Brazilian guitarist and bass player Manoel Tosto, as well as Cuban MC Kumar Sublevao-beat who features on the song "Un Recuerdo".

La Mambanegra Album Release - ‘El Callegüeso y su Malamaña’

Movimientos Records are very proud to celebrate their first international release; all the way from Cali, Colombia, La Mambanegra brings 10 tracks of Salsa straight out of the 21st Century with their debut album ‘El Callegüeso Y su Malamaña’. Its venom is made of 70’s NYC Salsa and elements of Jamaican and Colombian music, Funk and Hip Hop. But, La Mambanegra are more than just salsa. Indeed, their leader Jacobo Vélez prefers to believe that they inhabit a genre all of their own. He calls it ‘break-salsa’, on account of the band’s easy assimilation of hip-hop, ragga and knife-sharp funk.

This nine-piece music orchestra have been grooving hard for four years now their polyrhythmic, horn-heavy and thoroughly modern sound quickly earning them a devoted following across South America and beyond. Their full-throttle live shows overflowing with the absolute commitment of each band member. And, in Vélez, they have an exuberant, passionate leader for whom the music is an essential life force. “Salsa is sweat, sex, liquour and Pielroja cigarettes,” he announces. “It’s the gasoline that turns my heart on.”

The Album album ‘El Callegüeso Y su Malamaña’ is available on Digital, CD & Limited 12" Vinyl
