Top Tune of the Week

Week of March 6, 2013

Chico Mann - Same Old Clown

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!
