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!

New Track: Beastie Boys – “Don’t Play No Game That I Can’t Win” Ft. Santigold (Major Lazer Remix) + MP3

 

Earlier this year, the Beastie Boys and Santigold released their single, “Don’t Play No Game That I Can’t Win” and a few weeks ago, Major Lazer responded with their remix. In traditional Major Lazer fashion, the sound is an exciting traffic jam of noise, sped up to get your adrenaline pumping in a way that feels oh so right. The remix is available for free download compliments of Mad Decent and the OG track is also below for your streaming pleasure.

Finally, keep your eyes peeled for a pre-order of the 7″ soon, which will be pressed on red gold & green tie dye vinyl and limited to 1000 pieces!

Pirates of the Caribbean Soundtrack – Album Stream + Remix Contest

The Original Soundtrack for Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides features first-time collaboration with Oscar-winning Hans Zimmer and the acclaimed guitar duo Rodrigo y Gabriela. For the fourth movie they wanted a new sound and they found a perfect combination with these musicians. “I’ve been a big fan of Mexican guitarists Rodrigo y Gabriela for years now,” said Zimmer, “and I asked them if they wanted to come and play with us. We’ve been having a really great time with them being part of the musical world this film gets to inhabit.”

The Indaba Remix Contest launched this week, in which users are asked to remix two tracks from the soundtrack. The winning remixes will be featured on Indaba and AOL’s Spinner. And yesterday, KCRW hosted the premiere of “The Pirate That Should Not Be” – check out the blog to stream the single.

You can also stream the full soundtrack on the film’s official Facebook Page — “Like” this page to hear it.
