Captain Planet finally returns to Brooklyns Bastard Jazz Recordings for his long awaited follow up to 2005s massive Gumbo Funk EP. Picking up right where he left off, the Captain delivers more of the same Globally fed beats & breaks, extra heavy on the roughness that you ve come to expect.
This is a killer 6 tracker aimed straight for DJs and dancefloors- check the heavy Salsa-meets-chunky hip-hop breaks of "Speakin Nuyorican'", or the nasty MPC-flavored funk of "On Your Feet", while "Fumando" gets things smoking in upper ranges on some serious chopped up Brazilian exotica.
To the flip, "Lagos Speedway" is a dance-floor destroying African club cut with catchy guitars, a deep breakbeat, nasty synths, and riot inciting Afro chants, while "Fresh Delivery" is a superbly feel good instrumental downbeat anthem with horns and chopped up vocals, perfect for beginnings and ends. As an additional bonus, our friends from Athens, Palov and Mishkin, give a loopy voodoo breaks treatment to "Speakin' Nuyorican" to round out the EP nicely. Yet another sureshot from Bastard Jazz. "The E.P. is brilliant I'll definitely will chart it. Congratulations" - Kid Loco
