LIMITED PRESSING OF 1,000 GREEN VINYL
Chico Mann’s synthesis of Afrobeat, Latin freestyle, electro, and Cuban soul is nothing if not unprecedented. And in keeping with that theme, Wax Poetics Records will deliver not one, but two releases by multi-instrumentalist Marcos Garcia—aka Chico Mann—on October 26. In addition to Mann’s Analog Drift, his second album, Wax Poetics Records will drop an Official Serato Control Vinyl featuring the music of Chico Mann on one side and Serato Control Vinyl on the flip. The A-side will offer the Chico Mann songs “Ya Yo Sé” and “Exponential,” the latter tune exclusive to this release.
In 2004, Serato debuted its Scratch Live software, allowing DJs to mix and scratch files from their computer using regular turntables or CDJs. Control Vinyl in various colors soon became collector’s items among DJs, and Ya Yo Sé will enter this realm in a new shade of green.
This fall, you can catch Chico Mann on tour, from coast to coast. But Ya Yo Sé is your chance to take a piece of that music home and drop the needle yourself. And, once inspiration strikes, turn the record over, and throw yourself in the mix.
