New Release: Captain Planet – ‘Mystery Trip, Vol. 1′ + Limited Edition Cassette & Walkman + Hand Painted Boombox Contest

 

Captain Planet is just continuing to knock ‘em out with absolutely no shame. His most recent release, Mystery Trip Vol. 1, is quite the special one with all the goodies that come along. Firstly, we strongly advise you to listen to the entire mixtape below and get to percolating.

The globetrotting man blends together obscure cuts from around the world and original production to create glorious whirlwind of sound. On this mixtape, you’ll travel across generations and continents, visiting Senegal, Jamaica, Ghana, Puerto Rico, Peru, Brazil, Italy, Korea, Guadeloupe, and Zimbabwe.

This mix will be released digitally and as limited edition cassette tapes. The limited edition sets will also come with an exclusive batch of hand-painted walkmen with one-of-a-kind designs by Captain Planet himself. You can peep those photos after the jump.

Another snazzy component to the release is Turntable Lab’s sample-spotting contest, which includes the grand prize of a hand-painted Boombox (vintage 1982 Panasonic RX-5110) designed by sir Captain Planet himself – none like it exist anywhere else!

Enter the Turntable Lab contest to win a vintage boombox hand-painted by Captain Planet.

New Release: Analog Players Society – ‘Vols. 1 & 2′ + MP3

 

Producer, engineer, and percussionist Amon (Turntables on the Hudson) leads the Analog Players Society, a collective and community of musicians rooted at The Hook Studio in Brooklyn, NY. Judging from their music, vibrance is at the helm. Today, the collective releases their Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 7″ projects, both of which you can stream tracks from below!

We particularly fancy the rework of the 1986 hit song “I Can’t Wait” by Nu Shooz featuring the magnificent Cecilia Stalin (Koop) over a full horn section

Free for download is Vince Guaraldi’s classic “Christmas Time Is Here.” Enjoy!

Watch their performance at Southpaw after the jump.
