If “spontaneous dance party” was a genre, Austin’s CAPYAC would be the God-tier poster child. Invigorating the hips and grooves of audiences for years, these party-time enigmas brew a blend dance, hip-hop, jazz, funk, and some other spices in their cauldron and use buttery-smooth incantations of Eric Peana (AKA Ducky Limón) to create a sonic landscape as textured and conspicuous as their outfits and stage presence. Their latest album has the group “taken over” by the mad genius Donny Flamingo (keys player Delwin Campbell) who’s brought on the high-yet-chilled energy of saxophonist Papa Mongoose and the talent of one of the cities best MC’s RuDi Devino to fill-out CAPYAC’s stacked line-up. Every show they put on is sensationally unforgettable and today’s Song of the Day gives you a taste of their intoxicating energy and original sound. Give yourself some room.
The studio version of “Fade Out” appears on Who Is Donny Flamingo?, out now. Check out the rest of their latest Studio 1A here.
