Tamango Records is the fresh newborn imprint from Berlin founded by Yaya. The name is inspired on the story of Tamango, the first African slave who fought for his freedom, which perfectly represents the no-boundaries style of the label.
'13k' EP is the debut release by the boss himself with a three-tracker banging release. He inaugurates the label with entitled '13k' which sees Yaya delivering a deep, tech and raw jam with a full-bodied kick mixed together with dry snares, thiny hi-hats, rattling percussions and some anxious vocal chops. The whole retro-sounding dimension is yield by rumbling brass shots, sensual synths and mysterious textures.
On the flipside, 'Delirio Habanero' is more about frenzy things. It's a direct and robust stripped back techno tool with an essential groove, SCI-FI atmospheres and an obsessive-delayed female vocal sample.
Last of all, 'Gente De La Calle' is another 909 rough techno tune. Starting with a standard 4/4 structure, the analogic and dusty bassline is joined by 90's housy synths and rhythmic shakers, creating the perfect crossover element.
