Ten cuidado! aqui ahi viene el lobo! Fresh Afro-Latin rhythms from YANGA’s debut single on Sonorama Discos. Based in sun-kissed San Bernardino, California, Yanga draws inspiration from Colombia’s rich folclor y ritmos, all while creating new original compositions that seek to expand it’s rhythmic vocabulary via the dance floor.
‘El Lobo’ is a Chalupa rhythm, an upbeat cumbia variant, that rides on an exciting wave of tambores y ritmo alegre. While the chorus warns of the impending peligro, the accordion cautiously enhances a dramatic rhythmic pursuit of el lobo as it seeks it’s prey on the dancer. On the flip, Chico Mann blesses the b-side with a perfect remixed version that adds some nice electro-synth touches and added punch to drop into any club setting. Recorded and mixed by Eduardo Arenas who has also manned the board for Califas’ own Chicano Batman.
