The second single from Illa J‘s acclaimed debut album Yancey Boys, “Sounds Like Love” feat. Debi Nova is an irresistible, perfect fusion of hip hop and soul music. The production for the song, like all of the tracks on Yancey Boys, comes from a cache of previously‐untouched beats created by Illa J’s older brother, the late great visionary producer James “Jay Dee / J Dilla” Yancey.

The 12-inch includes remixes by Nobody, who turns in a grimier version, and Carlos Niño & Miguel Atwood-Ferguson, who transform it into a cinematic trip to the cosmos.

Following the success of the band’s first release Nueva Musica (Billboard #1, Grammy Nomination for remix of first single, IDMA Award for Best Latin Dance Song), The Latin Project comes straight at you with a superb set of brand new songs and stunning remixes on Musica De La Noche, out today on their own label.

This July 8th, REAL Wednesdays at Little Temple in Los Angeles presents the release party for their sophomore album where they will be performing live.  A Los Angeles Times review captured the vibe of their live show with these words: “The act is meant to be heard, and seen, in person…the set is an entrancing concoction of hypnotic beats, airy melodies and jazzy instrumentals…”

Singers Debi Nova (also heard performing with Sergio Mendez, Mark Ronson and Ricky Martin), Joel Virgil and Katia Moraes (from Brazilian act Sambaguru) fuse with percussion, keyboards, bass, guitar and flute/sax, to create a big, colorful experience.
