Brian Brewster aka Aquarius Heaven presents Bato Chargé, his first EP on Circus Company since 2013's Parallela Mundi (CCS 076EP). In Brewster's native Haitian Creole, "Bato Chargé" means "Overloaded Boat"; with the Caribbean rooted in the history of displaced humanity, the groove of "Bato Chargé" takes on a defiant, hopeful tone directly inspired by the traditional percussive music style gwo ka, while lyrically dealing with the pressing issue of refugees escaping conflict, poverty, and famine. "50 Drops" takes on a noirish tone, while the digi-dub skank of "Marie Galante" plays off Brewster's roots in reggae and dancehall.
