Captain Planet's "Cicada" on Bastard Jazz Recordings

Captain Planet is a new name for me, but after hearing his latest offering, “Cicada”, he definitely has my attention. The track, released on NY based label Bastard Jazz, is a breath of fresh air in an ever-crowded electronic music space.

The producer opens up with some warm rolling cicada’s, and then slowly builds with continual layers of South American tribal instruments and samples that compliment each other effortlessly. This is a sound that draws few comparisons, but it is clear that Captain Planet has a knack for finding unorthodox sounds and turning them into accessible, dance-friendly productions.

The full album, Esperanto Slang, which will feature musical samples from countries like Germany, Sudan and Argentina will be out October 7 via Bastard Jazz, and can be pre-ordered here.  Stream “Cicada” below.
