Tall Black GuyTempo Dreams Volume 1
Things open up on Cookin' Gumbo, with "Ram Ad Infinitum", with it's deep & spiritual Hindu vibe, yet hard hitting head drum break, expert chops and buzzing synths. Next up is "Get You Some", a catchy sure fire radio hit with vocals from up-and-coming LA soulstress Brit Lauren on top of a tough bossa-nova inspired beat that fans of Captain Planet will recognize from his incredibly popular and oft-played remix of "Erykah Badu's Cleva". We stay for a while in Brazil with both the funky "Macumba", and the party starting drum'n'bass meets hip-hop in Rio vibes of "Fumando", a longtime favorite of many, and "Samba Radiante" from the Captain's first EP!
Next we are off to Africa with "Ningane", a tough horn driven slice of hard afro beat with vocals from the Congo's Fredy Massamba (previously known for his vocals on many famous South African house tunes by Bodhi Satva and Ezel), and Lagos Speedway, "an electro Nigerian dancefloor bomb! We also visit Puerto Rico ("Dame Agua", "Speakin' Nuyorican"), Japan ("One for Japan",) the funky American South ("Another Dollar", "On Yer Feet") and more on this worldwide journey.
