A member of the legendary Brooklyn afro-funk band Antibalas, multi-instrumentalist and producer Chico Mann is to release his album ‘Magical Thinking’ later this year. Today saw the release of the first single ‘Same Old Clown’ via Soundway Records, and he more than lives up to his reputation for mixing up electro funk sounds. Chico Mann has worked with TV On The Radio, The Roots and Dam Funk as well as Antibalas and after his 2010 album ‘Analog Drift’ he’s gaining full steam as a solo artist.
Featuring New York singer Kendra Morris on vocals, ‘Same Old Clown’ is a funk-fulled affair borrowing heavily from the 80’s and electronic sounds of today. Looking forward to ‘Magical Thinking’ for some more of the same hopefully!
