Osunlade

Last Night a DJ Saved My Life

 

Osunlade (aka Christian Carlos Warren ) was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri.He composed music for Sesame Street during the late 1980s and early 1990s. Before moving to LA, where he worked with artists such as Patti Labelle and Freddie Jackson. After a stint there, he moved to New York, where he founded Yoruba Records because of “The continued need to create the music I wanted.”

 

To date he has worked with such artists as Roy Ayers, Nkemdi, Salif Keita, Poranguí, and Cesária Évora. In 2006, he released an album titled Aquarian Moon, in 2007, he released an album titled Elements Beyond on the revived Strictly Rhythm Records, and, in 2009, he released the album Passage. He is a priest of the Yoruba religion of Ifá. Because of his beliefs, Osunlade's music has a deep spiritual root in Yoruba traditions that are also reflected in the name of his record label, album covers, and also the titles of some of the tracks he has remixed such as "Obatala y Oduduwa" and "Yemeya."

 

Yoruba Records is an organic, jazzy deep afro latin inspired label.

 

Osunlade has pushed the boundries of House music, and soul music to new heights. From deep organic lush house, to deep techno infused floor smashers. His dj sets are now legendary, creating his own vocals for his records and he works with his Yoruba Soul orchestra bringing a live feel to his signature sounds.
