Landing this summer on Urban Trout is 'Ore Yèyé O' - Aron Ottignon's new collaboration with Puerto-Rico-based vocalist and Yoruba priest Oturo Mun, better known as Ifé. The beginning of this sonic journey traces back to Paris in the summer of 2017, when various French A&R summoned them for a meeting at the infamous Les Studios St Germain. After getting to know more about each other around a drink, the two of them then began jamming, exchanging ideas and recording the session for Aron to edit and arrange before Mun would get to lay some lyrics over the instrumentals and they would eventually over-dub them and douse the whole into beds of further textural lushness. So was born 'Ore Yèyé O' - a song that is in fact a salute and prayer to Yoruban deity Oshún. Drenched in verbed-out abstraction and reshuffled tribal-jazz tropes, the track is an incantatory chant as much as a compelling piece of inward-gazing meditation for the dancer and listener to wrap his ears and mind around. Whilst Aron's piano chords operate as unfolding origamis of harmonic balance, Mun's vocals ease us into the higher spiritual spheres of Yoruban beliefs and colourful imagery through dreamy, atmospheric sequences and further breezy jazz-funk flights. Stepping in on remix duty, BBE's Julien Dyne extrapolates the cosmo-discoid appeal of the original and turns it into a proper boat-party chugger, oozing pure chimey brightness and ethereal shine. Taking 'Ore Yèyé O' for a jaunt in playfully breaksy, acid-soaked old-school territories, Düsseldorf-based producer and TFGC affiliate Lucas Croon propels Mun's timeless incantations in alien-ruled realms and sedated liquid jungle'y depths. Rounding off the package, Ziggy Zeitgeist extends the original mix's club-readiness through a resequenced and bass-enhanced momentum, which brings forth the entrancing power of Mun's voice and Ottignon's unique arrangement savoir-faire.
