Chico Mann & Captain Planet
Known for their love of Latin funk, Afrobeat and Caribbean-inspired rhythms, LA-via-New York globetrotters Chico Mann and Captain Planet make quite the pair.
Night Visions is a collection of stories, an infectious blend of Afro-Latin rhythms and contemporary dancefloor beats. Told by a variety of characters, drawn from the vibrant imagination of Chico Mann, these stories take place in an endless night, where we move through dimly lit clubs, jungle moonlight, pitch black desert plains, and the internal shadows of personal darkness.

When the sun is up and everyone else has gone on holiday but you're stuck on the commute home from the office, turn that fierce heat and humidity into a latin experience.
So many great tunes here you could play out as a DJ, reminded of artists like Mexican Institute of Sound and Bonde do Role.
Night Visions highlights the creative symbiosis of two of the biggest names in contemporary alternative Latin sounds. The result is a truly unique album that speaks as much to listeners who don't understand Spanish as it does to old abuelos.
The feelings and rhythms that flow through these songs are universal, appealing to hearts and hips all around the world.
