Un Poquito Más

PoquitoMas

I’ve been anxiously awaiting the day when I could share this one with you all. I’ve been a huge fan of Marcos Garcia (aka Chico Mann) since I first saw Antibalas back in Brooklyn circa 2003. When he dropped his first Manifest Tone EP I had him come by for an interview and guest DJ set on my Passport radio show on WNYU. I probably have a recording of that somewhere and I need to dig it up… Anyway, jump ahead many years and I finally got close to a proper collabo with my remix of his single “I Feel It”. I started sending him beats hoping that one of them would catch his interest, and sure enough it finally worked. “Un Poquito Más” is the first single from my upcoming full-length on Bastard Jazz Records, with melodic marimba vibes, heavy bass, cracking drums and suave vocals by Chico, I hope you agree it’s a winner. If you dig it, please support and spread the word! Big shout out to the Vice blog Thump for the premier and positive (albeit heavily misspelled) review.

    Indeed a fine bit of tuneage, had someone on a bike ask me what it was at a stop light this morning when I was cranking it in the car on the way to work at 7am. Hopefully they also buy it.
