Following up on his smashing debut album, Cookin’ Gumbo, released last fall, Captain Planet has brought us yet another bag of gifts.

Captain Planet to Release ‘Cookin’ Gumbo’ + MP3


We already know y’all loved Captain Planet’s Ningané EP – we did, too. But the diverse beatsmith might have outdone himself with his first full length, Cookin’ Gumbo. Out on September 6th, the album combines funk, soul, and world music from “all corners of the globe” to bring an irresistible concoction of dancefloor tunes. It is in fact difficult to stay in our seats while writing this – we may well have to end this post prematurely and attend to our urge to move.

Moving along swiftly. Do take a listen to the free MP3 remixing the amazing Mia Doi Todd’s “Paraty.” We enjoyed thoroughly!

And lastly, do not miss out on the sure to be incredible release parties in LA, SF, NY, and DC. Details below!
