Senor Coconut – “Yellow Fever” – [Nacional Records]

aarbor   1/12/2011   CD, International

Yellow Fever is Uwe Schmidt’s (a/k/a Atom Heart, ATOM TM etc.) tribute to Japan’s Yellow Magic Orchestra. He’s upgraded to a full sized big band instead of just samplers and computer gear. Accompanying him are various artists including vocalist Argenis Brito, Deelite’s DJ Towa Tei, Mouse On Mars, and YMO’s Ryuchi Sakamoto. Essentially he’s transmogrphying the work of Yellow Magic Orchestra into classic Latin style pop songs. Atom Heart’s aim is to invent a super eclectic style of music and as usual, his cosmic sense of humor is a key part of the mix. Play, laugh, dance!  AArbor
