The new M.CHUZI EP is out now!

Posted on 12/04/2024

Yiri? Yiri! BOOM! A year and a half after their debut on Sdban Ultra, the Brussels-based afro-groove formation M.CHUZI returns with a stunning EP. 'Yiri BOOM!' offers a variety of summery sauces to season this spring with its refreshing sound, catchy songs, and some notable features.

Captivated by a musical residency in Benin, this time the band relocates to the Black Atlantic, with the agogo bell as their guide. Literally, because in "Mojo Picon", drum legend Stéphane Galland actually performs a solo on cowbell. A world’s first. Together with singer Vanesa Diaz Gil, M.CHUZI travels from the Canarias to Cuba with an innovative cover of the Cuban mambo classic "Yiri Yiri Boum". Following in the footsteps of this iconic song, the Brussels gents finally cross back across the ocean in the danceable "Pepersaus" (Pepper Sauce), in which the heyday of Fela Kuti's afrobeat resonates with an irresistible guitar riff, a rippling bass, a rousing shuffle groove and punchy horns.

EP ‘YIRI BOOM!’ by M.CHUZI is out today, order via Bandcamp or listen on your favourite streaming platform.
