After the success of 2009√Ę¬Ä¬ôs Speakin√Ę¬Ä¬ô Nuyorican EP (which saw licenses for both CBS√Ę¬Ä¬ôs CSI: NY and HBO√Ę¬Ä¬ôs Entourage), successful remixes for Alice Russell and Vieux Farke Toure, top-ranking in Giles Peterson√Ę¬Ä¬ôs Havana Cultura Remix contest, as well as a move from Brooklyn to Los Angeles √Ę¬Ä" the man who goes by Captain Planet returns back to form on Bastard Jazz Recordings with a dancefloor-destroying 12√Ę¬Ä¬Ě steeped in the tough international breakbeat sound that he√Ę¬Ä¬ôs become known for, leading up to his first full length album dropping in the fall.On the title track of the EP, √Ę¬Ä¬úNingane√Ę¬Ä¬Ě √Ę¬Ä" the Captain enlists the vocal talents of Congolese singer Fredy Massamba (known for his vocals on a couple of big African house tracks - Boddhi Satva√Ę¬Ä¬ôs √Ę¬Ä¬úWarriors of Africa√Ę¬Ä¬Ě and Ezel√Ę¬Ä¬ôs √Ę¬Ä¬úHis Presence√Ę¬Ä¬Ě) √Ę¬Ä" over a rugged, horn driven slice of broken Afrobeat. Fredy√Ę¬Ä¬ôs words (sung in his native Kikongo language) perfectly ride the riddim before moving into a deeper, late night house vibe with soaring vocals. Up next, Boston√Ę¬Ä¬ôs Whiskey Barons give √Ę¬Ä¬úNingane√Ę¬Ä¬Ě a signature reflip, moving the track into classic Afro-disco territory with a four on the floor beat, live keys + guitar, chopped horns and vocals, and a bassline that√Ę¬Ä¬ôs funky as all hell. Watch out for those killer percussion breaks!Moving to the flip, √Ę¬Ä¬úDame Agua√Ę¬Ä¬Ě is a fire-breathing Latin scorcher with massive percussion and drums, stabbing salsa horns, bubbling organs, and vintage-sounding vocals put on the chopping block! Up next, we√Ę¬Ä¬ôre headed to Brazil with √Ę¬Ä¬úMacumba√Ę¬Ä¬Ě √Ę¬Ä" a down and dirty Samba influenced 108BPM breakbeat joint with all the elements firmly intact, including beautiful Portuguese vocals sliced and diced properly√Ę¬Ä¬¶. the Captain proves time and time again that he can deftly flip an array of global sounds into a sound that is undeniably his own. Also included on the B-Side is an instrumental of √Ę¬Ä¬úNingane√Ę¬Ä¬Ě.
