Marcos Garcia (aka Chico Mann), longtime member of Antibalas, multi instrumentalist, guitarist and remixer, drops his 5th solo album Magical Thinking in March against a backdrop of pop sensibilities and guest vocalists including our very own Kendra Morris. The album draws as much on 80′s funk, boogie and electro as merengue and Afro-beat.
His most recent LP Analog Drift (2010), a KCRW favorite, was released through Wax Poetics Records. As Garcia toured throughout the US. Jon Pareles (NY Times) praised his live show’s “far-reaching electronica” that had the ability “to dissolve decades, along with borders”. Notable writer/producer Jeremy Page mixed the new album for Soundway Records and this week’s Top Tune brings you a sneak peek of Mann’s ascension with “I Feel It” Captain Planet Remix
