Captain Planet (feat. Chico Mann) – Aguacero

(click on song title above to listen)

Captain Planet and Chico Mann have reunited for a slice of chilled-out global bass on this week’s top tune, “Aguacero”. It’s the first track on the new EP, More Slang from Brooklyn-based label, Bastard Jazz which also features a sweet LondonBridge remix of “Un Poquito Mas”.

Captain Planet (Charlie Bethel) began Dj-ing and making beats on a Tascam 4-track in his teens. He became obsessed with vinyl records & began digging for samples which led to a love for Reggae, Latin, and African music. Charlie’s worldwide travels and tireless search for new sounds led to a collaborative friendship with Chico Mann & to his distinctive “Gumbo Funk” style as a producer.

Speaking of travel, Chico Mann has been scheduled to appear as a featured artist at the historic Manana 2016, to take place May 4-6, 2016 in Santiago de Cuba . Manana is a non-profit music festival connecting Afro-Cuban Folkloric music with the pioneers of the International Electronic music community.

The festival is a celebration of Cuba’s cultural capital, Santiago de Cuba, and a celebration of community. collaboration, and dance.

(click the song title above to play)

“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!
