Chico Mann & Captain Planet – Night Visions Remixed
Stream/buy the digital release here.
Chico Mann & Captain Planet’s critically acclaimed Night Visions album (released in Feb 2017) was a unique album highlighting the creative symbiosis of two of the biggest names in contemporary alternative Latin sounds, with Captain Planet’s production keeping the album sounding effortlessly danceable & contemporary with Chico’s vocals having an instantly classic appeal, hinting at old Cuban rumba and vintage Afrobeat LP’s. Now the LP gets the remix treatment from a whole host of diverse producers, taking the original vibes into new directions & sounds. Highlights include Yukicito’s turning “Ya Te Toca” into a rumbling Latin dancefloor monster, Nickodemus’ shuffling drum heavy rework of “Aguacero”, B.Bravo turning “Misunderstood” into hip-hop and r&b influenced banger, and Allen French giving “Como Me Miras” a smoothed out baeleric house treatment. Other remixes come from the likes of Emynd, JusNow Lagartijeando, and Sumohair. The package also includes a brand new joint from Chico Mann & Captain Planet, “Ariwoko” a low slung take on a classic Fela Kuti joint.
