Chris Read – ‘Mambo Jazz Del Pito (The Whistle Song)’: New Single for Breakin Bread out today!

My new single ‘Mambo Jazz Del Pito (The Whistle Song)’ is out today on Breakin Bread records! More info from the Breakin Bread press release:

“Breakin Bread are back on the tropical tip with a nod to Latin America from Chris Read and Captain Planet. This 7” is guaranteed to move asses and feet with a pair of vibey mid to uptempo Latin floor fillers.

SIDE A: Mambo Jazz Del Pito (The Whistle Song) (7 Inch Version)

‘Mambo Jazz Del Pito’ is a Latin dancefloor cut with a distinctly jazzy undertone. Combining pulsing percussion, warm bass, jazz piano and horns with crowd rousing shouts and whistles, this is a jazzy slice of rhythmic floor filling Breakin Bread magic. Topping the track with a throaty overdriven Rhodes line and enlisting the talents of samba guitarist Giles Barratt to add rhythmic texture, this jazz-samba-beat fusion combines the funky feel of live musicianship with crisp production to create a track that is club workout and beautiful home listener in equal measure.

SIDE B: Mambo Jazz Del Pito (Captain Planet Remix)

The B Side sees New York tropical heavyweight and Bastard Jazz signing Captain Planet give his own unique take on the track. Taking all the essential elements of the original and re-working them into something entirely new, it’s a remix that does everything a remix should whilst remaining full of surprises. Lifting the characteristic vocals and guitars of its a-side counterpart and placing them against downtempo boogaloo percussion, a warm double bass b-line, quirky whistles and subtle organs, the track opens at a deceptively laid back pace. One of the Captain’s trademark breakdowns leads to a dramatic shift of pace introducing a punchy double time drum track that is drum & bass and boogaloo in equal parts. The result is a remix which compliments the original perfectly with an infectious blend of tradition and contemporary dancefloor sensibility. New York meets London via Latin America!”
