“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!

This week’s Top Tune features the first single from Chico Mann’s upcoming lp, Magical Thinking on Soundway Records. Guitarist with the band Antibalas, multi instrumentalist, producer & remixer, Chico Mann (AKA Marcos Garcia) 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 among others.
Garcia’s love affair with synthesizers, drum machines, and 80′s freestyle expands the vocabulary of traditional Afrobeat in new directions which might very well be described as spacey electronic nu-merengue. Lucky for us, we’re along for the ride. With a little inspiration from a Notable Muse, Same Old Clown features our very own Kendra Morris on vocals and is available now on iTunes HERE. Kudos to Notable’s Jeremy Page for the mix!
