A 6 track worldbeat ep (32m 53s) — released February 7th 2011 on Bastard Jazz Recordings
After the success of Captain Planet's “Speakin Nuyorican†EP, which sold out out across the board in record time, and saw it's tracks appearing on both HBO'S "Entourage" and CBS's "CSI:NY" - Brooklyn's Bastard Jazz Recordings has digitally release Captain Planet's very first 12â€, previously only available on a long-gone limited edition 12", “The Gumbo Funk EP†with two bonus tracks not included on the vinyl. Originally self-released in '05 and unquestionably ahead of it's time, Captain Planet’s “Gumbo Funk†bridges globally scattered genres such as Salsa, Samba, Afrobeat, Bollywood, Dancehall, Disco and Hip-Hop with the universal love of a danceable breakbeat. The product of Captain Planet’s enormous record collection and over 10 years experience as club and radio DJ. Tightly woven layers of syncopated percussion build the foundation for piercing horn blasts, driving bass riffs, wah-wah guitars, jazzy keyboard vamps, and reinterpreted vocal samples. Gumbo Funk is exactly Captain Planet takes the DIY approach to music making in the likes of contemporary funkateers Quantic, Madlib, and Beatfanatic. All appreciators of Thievery Corporation’s “Outernational†sound, J-Boogie’s “Dubtronic Scienceâ€, or the feel-good “Turntables On The Hudson" should pick up this E.P. without a second thought.
