Captain Planet had us at his self-proclaimed genre of "Gumbo Funk". The globe-trotting beat maker returns with the single "Cicada" from his brand new album Esperanto Slang. The track illuminates Captain Planet's fluency in bridging genre's and continents through rhythm.
Throughout the album, border-crossing collaborations seamlessly translate the musical synergies between global dancefloor cultures. Blending a wide range of styles from NY hip-hop, UK bass and Turkish psychedelic, to Nigerian afrobeat and Amazonian funk, Esperanto Slang demonstrates that Captain Planet's trademark sound has matured into a truly unique form of electronic music, connecting scenes and languages worldwide through his unique sonic thesaurus.
