New York, NY - Fania Records announced today the release of Elements Of Life Eclipse, a 2-disc album from Louie Vega's critically acclaimed live orchestral project. This is the first new artist album Fania is releasing in years. The first disc showcases 17 brand new tracks from Elements Of Life that tastefully traverse the sounds of Afrobeat, Jazz, Latin, R&B, Gospel, Soul, Blues, Brazilian and World Music all woven with the golden touch of Grammy Award winning Producer/Artist/DJ Louie Vega. The second disc includes "EOL Soulfrito" an homage to Fania Records through interpretations and remixes of classic Fania songs performed by the Elements Of Life in a 33-minute sound collage as well as six more bonus tracks.
Louie Vega connected with the legendary Fania Records after doing the smash club remix of his uncle Hector Lavoe's "Mi Gente" track back in 2008. Louie elaborates, "At that time I started working on my new Elements Of Life album. Fania was already aware of my previous E.O.L. albums and when they got wind, they wanted to hear it. Once they heard it, they were very interested in signing it. I was in awe of the idea." He concludes, "It's a true honor for me to be the first new artist album signed to Fania Records in years. It really comes full circle now, being able to be on the label my uncle Hector Lavoe was on and the Fania All Stars who are also great inspirations for me. Fania Records is to Latin music what Motown is to R&B and Soul, so to be even a small page in this encyclopedia of music is a dream come true for me."
