Yoruba Records is happy to welcome back label veterans Kiko Navarro and DJ Fudge with this tribal leaning surprise release. As the name Babalu Aye (the praise name for the healer in the Orisha system) suggests, this package has taken on a diverse world music approach. The original mix opens with crystal clear vocals that complement the wide array of live drums featured throughout. The mix comes into its own with the addition of atmospheric underlying keys and melodic guitar riffs. The club cut comes with a more pronounced, driving, beat clearly meant for the floor and features well-crafted jazz-like piano lines sure to capture listeners in a trance. The Le Soleil Mix uses a smooth bass line that takes charge of the track and is complimented by a rhythm guitar and a hint of ambient keys that add fullness and depth to this cut. The Moyuba Dub edges on the border of tech house and is as club ready as they come. Finally, the Cosmic Dub brings this release to a close with a slow, rolling bass line, drawn out atmospheric synths and well placed stabs that will keep the room moving into the early morning.
