Captain Planet

Artist:Captain Planet
Title:Speakin' Nuyorican EP
Label:Bastard Jazz
Captain Planet finally returns to Brooklyn's Bastard Jazz Recordings for his long awaited follow-up to 2005's massive 'Gumbo Funk' EP. Picking up right where he left off, the Captain delivers more of the same globally fed beats and breaks, extra heavy on the roughness that is his expected trademark. This is a killer six tracker aimed straight for DJs and dancefloors - check the heavy salsa meets chunky hip hop breaks of 'Speakin Nuyorican', or the nasty MPC-flavoured 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 dancefloor destroying Afro-style club cut with catchy guitars, a deep breakbeat, nasty synths, and riot inciting afreekah chants, while 'Fresh Delivery' is a superbly feel good instrumental downbeat anthem with horns and chopped up vocals. As an additional bonus, Athenian duo Palov and Mishkin give a loopy voodoo breaks treatment to 'Speakin Nuyorican' to round out the EP nicely. Another ruffneck Latin breakbeat sureshot from Bastard Jazz, hyped and supported by Kid Loco, DJ Sabo, Griff (Jelly Jazz), Hint (Tru Thoughts) and other top spinners.
