Tonight we introduce you to Charlie B. Wilder, who is the man behind Captain Planet. Fueled by an early love of Hip-Hop music Charlie began DJ-ing and making beats on a Tascam 4-track in his teens. He soon developed an obsession with vinyl records and digging for samples which led to an expanded appreciation of Reggae, Latin and African music as well as a curiosity for other styles from around the world.
Captain Planet’s trademark sound has matured into a truly unique form of electronic music – bridging gaps between worldwide music diasporas as well as contemporary dance music sub-genres (house, hip hop, dubstep & breaks). Throughout every Captain Planet song, it’s clear to hear his inspired appreciation for breaking the boundaries between genres and bridging continents through rhythm.
His tracks supported by: Diplo, Major Lazer, Nightmares On Wax, Nickodemus
