Captain Planet - Mystery Trip Vol. 2 (12")
Captain Planet is back on Bastard Jazz with the second volume of his Mystery Trip series. Digging deep into his record collection housed in a Flatbush storage unit, the Captain has pulled out a hefty selection of joints from all over the world and has deftly chopped, sliced, skewed, and reworked them into a full mixtape full of his exclusive edits, and an ultra limited run of white label, hand stamped 12”s with the choicest dancefloor cuts from the tape.
Things kick off with “Oluku”, a bubblin’ Nigerian dubby disco jam with a heavy bassline and pounding drums, followed by “Manman Mwan” - a big uptempo, percussion and chant heavy African killer. On the flip, “Sapatiero” heads to Brasil with its bouncing synth bass, beefed up drums and dreamy vocals, while “El Marcianito” rounds things off on a chugging, ultra funky Cumbia note.
