Da Lata return with ‘this is not your job’

Da Lata return with ‘this is not your job’

November 10th 2008 heralds the return of London-based cult afro-Latin-funk duo Da Lata with ‘This Is Not Your Job’, plus disco and deep house remixes from Faze Action, The Layabouts and Yass.

Key members Patrick Forge and Chris Franck are joined by Senegalese singer/Kora player Diabel Cissokho, previously of the internationally renowned Baba Maal. Cissokho has also played alongside the likes of African A-listers Femi Kuti and Manu Dibango.

Patrick Forge met Nina Miranda in a club in Rio, heard the demo of her underground anthem ‘Underwater Love’ and on Nina’s return to London, introduced her to Chris. Smoke City was born and ‘Underwater Love’ crossed-over to become a major hit in 1996.
