KEY JAM is out now. The song is played by DJ Jack El Calvo as the opening track of his mixes "The Lockdown Sessions - Para Bailar Casino" on New Morning Radio, Paris. Three videoclips will be released, following by the first album in spring 2021.
For the 6th opus of SUMO “Oya”, the journey continues by exploring new horizons, rhythms and sounds.The group exiled itself to Cuba, where a tour in support of their previous album had brought about striking and heartfelt friendships. In this new adventure, Sumo met his Cuban soul brothers to become: “SUMO y Los Hermanos del Alma”.
The brother duo has explored the universe since their youngest age and were first known as BMX freestyle pioneers in Europe (champions of France and Switzerland) and already then tried to reach the sky and escape into another galaxy.
They started their music career in a very young age and founded in 1999 the soul-funk-electro project SUMO and released five albums: Before the Sun (2004), Rise (2006), Over the Beat (2010), Ex-Machina (2013) and Galactika feat. Wayne Paul, UK (2016. As a live band they have performed before artists such as Faithless, Jamie Lidell or Gotan Project. SUMO tracks were played on worldwide radio stations (BBC Gilles Peterson Worldwide, Nova) and were published on various compilations along with Laurent Garnier and Moby.
