Drawing inspiration from Salsa, Samba, Afrobeat, Arabic, Bollywood, Dancehall, Disco, Hip Hop, and House, Brooklyn's Captain Planet's (aka Charlie Bethel) 'Gumbo Funk E.P.' bridges globally scattered genres with the universal love of a danceable breakbeat. Samples bits and pieces of the old and obscure from around the world. Tightly woven layers of syncopated percussion build the foundation for piercing horn blasts, driving bass riffs, wah-wah guitars, jazzy keyboard vamps, and reinterpreted vocal samples. FOR FANS OF: Thievery Corporation, J-Boogie's 'Dubtronic Science',sampledelic funkateers Quantic, Madlib and Beatfanatic.'
