Kiko Navarro's 'Afroterraneo' label continues to explore new territories in the realm of electronic music with the second volume of album series 'Genesis'.

Picking off right where 'Genesis Vol.1' left off, this second instalment opens with Kiko Navarro's spiritual dub version of Isaac Aesili's chillout gem 'The Real'. Hungarian producer and drummer PALMFooD delivers exotic atmospheres in 'Somello', a track which summons up the sunshine with a sublime piano breakdown and evocative live percussion.

Next, Kiko Navarro presents the stunning Yoruba Soul remix of 2007 cut Aché Pa Ti, written in collaboration with his longtime collaborator (and piano teacher) Isis 'Apache' Montero. Kengo's 'Florida Street' summons an eclectic carnival atmosphere, with a scratchy recording of a tribal chorus and upbeat kalimbas combined with modern digital drums and synths.

Appearing in Beaport's 'Best Afro House' chart earlier this year, Afroterraneo's debut release 'Sea Goddess' receives a new re-edit for 'Genesis Vol.2', subtly tweaking the arrangement for even more meaningful dance-floor impact. Akayan's 'Snakes' lays down a rock-solid House groove, gradually stacking rhythmic stabs and fragments of melody which amount to a towering peak-time groove.

Somewhat slept-on at the time of its 2016 release, Kiko Navarro's synth-laden dub version of 'El Rey De Los Truenos' by Myles Bigelow gets a well deserved new lease of life, fitting nicely into the Afroterraneo sound. KOKI's perfectly titled 'Unstoppable Beat' showcases stellar live percussion performance over a frenetic and highly charged electronic rhythm; surely a must-have DJ tool.

Tuccillo's remix of 'The First Time feat. Isis 'Apache' Montero' heads into bouncier, Chicago-style House territory with loungey jazz piano shimmering over tight, swung drums and rolling bass. Closing this chapter in the Afroterraneo story, Kiko Navarro provides an achingly beautiful reprise of The Visionary's 'My Life Is Music', a set closer of his for many years, which can now be yours too.
