Captain Planet 'Esperanto Jazz' Record Release at ESL, October 24, 2014

Charlie B. Wilder, better known as the beatmaking DJ Captain Planet, is touring in support of this new album, Esperanto Jazz, released October 7th on Bastard Jazz Recordings. His sample-heavy, glitchtastic compositions incorporate Latin and African rhythms, New Orleans jazz, and New York hip-hop into what he terms "Gumbo Funk". In addition to his music, Wilder runs the website Mixtape Riot, a site popular with DJs, remix aficionados, and fans of underground dance.

You can stream Esperanto Jazz in its entirety, including vinyl-only bonus tracks. Captain Planet and Bastard Jazz founder DJ DRM will be spinning on the patio at Eighteenth Street Lounge this Friday, October 24th, from 10pm - 3am. Tickets are $10.
