Yerba Buena - Follow MeWrasse Records
Here we get their two American releases (Island Life and President Alien) fused onto one release. Yerba Buena is the brainchild of 'the master chef of Urban fusion' Andres Levin whose track record (Nile Rogers, David Byrne, Chaka Khan and the Fela Kuti tribute 'Red Hot & Riot') speaks for itself. Here the dance party is mainly Latin based but as you'd imagine there's a whole lot more going on there too. The guests line up is mighty impressive too, including Carlinhos Brown, Les Nubians, Joe Bataan, Gogol Bordello, Fulantion etc. Excellent.
