“I try to say the sweetest things to keep you coming back”…this week’s Top Tune is a remix of a favorite track from Marcos Garcia‘s (AKA Chico Mann) third solo LP, 2013′s Magical Thinking on Soundway Records.
Garcia is a multi-instrumentalist, producer and a founding member of Antibalas. Marcos has in the past worked with the likes of TV On The Radio, The Roots, and Dam Funk as well as remixing Little Dragon and Alice Russell.
Like many of his previous outings, Chico Mann’s Magical Thinking lp combines latin, freestyle, and 80s electro funk. On Same Old Clown, these influences provide the perfect backdrop for slinky vocals by Notable alum Kendra Morris. DJ Kon who is known as one of the best Disco/Funk/Soul/Boogie DJs in the world, provides the remix.
You can hear Garcia’s latest single “Un Poquito Mas” with Captain Planet on the album Esperanto Slang which is currently #1 on CMJ’s World Music Chart. Look out for Marcos on tour with Antibalas early 2015!

“Un Poquito Mas” (a little more) is one of our favorite tracks of the summer. It is also the first single from producer, songwriter, and remixer, Captain Planet on his forthcoming album Esperanto Slang (due Oct 7th on Bastard Jazz).
After teaming up with our very own Chico Mann on this sublime Latin-House dance track, the globe-trotting Captain Planet traveled South to join forces with esteemed Argentinian electronic chanteuse La Yegros as well as Brazilian artists Samira Winter and Nevilton. Also featured on the album is Berlin-based globalista, Paco Mendoza.
The second single, “In The Gray” is a sweet reggae-infused track featuring singer Brit Lauren (recently featured on the Netflix original series, Orange is the New Black) & backed by horns from Los Angles based supergroup, The Lions.
