Japanese born Yukicito found his love for Brazilian music after moving to LA as a teenager & emerging himself in the samba schools of one of the biggest Brazilian communities in the country. Soon after learning all the instruments & songs, he became a teacher & started making recordings with vocalists & musicians.
After several hit remixes on both Wonderwheel & Bastard Jazz, Yukicito drops his 1st original 5 track EP. A dance-floor fusion the African rooted music of both Brazil's Atlantic coast & The Pacifico music of Colombia's Pacific coast, we feel the roots & the thump of long running Los Angeles party called 'La Junta'.
At six songs and 22 minutes, “De Bassari Togo” is a short record with a lot of punch. It’s also a vital collection of fiery afro-rock for historians and music fans alike. Bandcamp Album of the Day Dec 18, 2018
