Created in 2006, Setenta consists of seven musicians from Paris. Using their musical tastes and backgrounds, Setenta produce a unique mix of Latin, soul and boogaloo, with a touch of Caribbean influences. After a sparkling debut on the Latin scene with their first album Funky Tumbao (2010), they performed live for two years on an impressive and exhilarating world tour, and now Setenta is proud to present this hot album of Latin soul. Sung in Spanish, English and also in Creole and Yoruba, Setenta writes songs with lyrics about various universal themes, including "love, peace and unity." All 14 tracks on this new album were recorded at Mato studio in Paris, on analog equipment with rare vintage instruments. Influenced by Nuyorican maestros of the '70s, the band was also keen to create their own futuristic Latin-soul sound. The album also contains two covers that reflect the eclecticism of the band. First they decided to take on the hip-hop classic Busta Rhymes' "Woo Hah!! Got You All In Check "with a funky mambo version. Then Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit" is revisited with a massive boogaloo touch, ready to hit radios and dancefloors all over the world. With this pulsating and rhythmic album, Setenta gives us a modern definition somewhere between salsa and funk -- a future Latin-soul masterpiece, already.
