ATANGANA

Founded DJ and producer Deni-Shain, the man responsible for killer comps "Space Echo" and "Pop Makossa", Atangana Records is the logical follow-up to more than 20 years of travels, constantly on the lookout for new artists and music around the world. As a “tropicalist globetrotter”, in this new project Deni-Shain, in partnership with Thomas Vicente, co-owner of the French restaurant “Le Verre Volé”, aims to dig, reproduce & transmit cross-cultural music, usually unreachable and/or less known by the public.
The goal is simple: share the love of music and to rediscover the pleasure of voicings, percussions and sadly forgotten harmonies, whether you find yourself in a jam packed club or the intimacy of your home.
Atangana’s first release heads into the Caribbean, handing the diggers the most in demand Haitian grail "Divizion" by singer Fedia Laguerre. Originally released in 1981, this first 12" comes with a remix by Voilaaa and an instrumental cut exclusively based on the additional work by the French afro-collective. In its original form, "Divizion's" plangent horns, cool keys and politicized lyrics create a powerful yet melancholy sound that pairs raw soul with body moving groove. Taking the controls, Favorite favourites Voilaaa twist the arrangement and up the ante with an extended mix made for DJs and dancers. Bounding in bonus beats territories, Voilaaa also offer a stripped back and sparse variant created from their additional material.


STAFF COMMENTS

Sil says: Tropical world music of the highest caliber. Feel good, warm and organic. Blissful sounds from Laguerre to kick off your weekend. 'Divizion' is already pretty dancefloor friendly but if you want the real deal head for the B side where you will encounter a mega remix that will tots turn heads. Defo a winner.
