Captain Planet - In The Gray

Off Captain Planet's sophmore effort, ESPERANTO SLANG, due out on October 7th on 2xLP, CD, Digital and Vinyl Deluxe Pack w/ Custom Tote Bag. Out on Bastard Jazz (Lord Echo, Mophono)

" Esperanto Slang further illuminates the “Gumbo Funk” producer’s fluency in breaking boundaries between genres and bridging continents through rhythm. Steeped in finely-tuned collaborations with artists from across the map (Chico Mann, Alsarah, Paco Mendoza, La Yegros, Brit Lauren, Samira Winter, ChigiyoMaster).

The album documents the Captain’s continued musical travels in the wake of his critically-acclaimed 2011 debut album Cookin’ Gumbo and subsequent ‘Mystery Trip’ beat-tape (heralded “Best Music of 2012” by Sasha Frere-Jones in The New Yorker)."
