AFRO FUNKE’ LIVE PRESENTS
“Cookin Gumbo” CD Release
Hot on the heels of his acclaimed Ningane EP, globe-trotting DJ/producer Captain Planet is ready to serve up his dancefloor-igniting debut album, Cookin’ Gumbo, on Bastard Jazz Recordings. This bubbling digital DJ promo features some of the most delectable tracks from the record, including the stomping EP single “Ningane” featuring Congolese singer Freddy Massamba (plus a remix by Boston’s Whiskey Barons), the enticing “Get You Some” featuring LA’s soulful rising-star Brit Lauren, the fiery latin blog-smasher “Dame Agua,” and one of the Captain’s first releases on Bastard Jazz, “Samba Radiente,” reworked for the 2011 climate. These floor-fillers are just a taste of what’s headed to your plate on September 6.
