Chico Mann’s latest work is Analog Drift. Mann does an excellent job mixing an Afro-beat/Afro-Cuban sound with a synth heavy dance beat. The result does feel like an “analog drift”. The music has an older feel to it, like it should be heard on a record instead of the modern technologies of today. He covers Talking Heads “Once In A Lifetime” with his Afro-Dance style giving it a new twist that doesn’t feel forced or recycled. The album is definitely upbeat but it has a certain casualness to it and is something you could either chill out to or have on during a dinner party. At the same time, the tracks could also fill the dance floor with it’s perfect Afro-Dance fusion.
