Plankton Man (born Ignacio Chavez, Nashio for short) is a Mexican musician and former founding member of the Nortec Collective. His music is inspired by traditional Mexican music such as the brass banda and the accordion accents of norteño music, as well as jazz and electronic music elements.

Planktonman began his career in the early 1990s in his native Ensenada, Baja California as a guitarist for the now defunct electro-rock group Sonios. The band became well known throughout northwestern Mexico and southern California's Latin music scene. He then began solo work in electronic breakbeat music.

Nashio is also half of the new duo Kobol, alongside Argel Medina (Arhkota), the drummer of Niño Astronauta. Their sound is a mixture of organic glitch music and digital jazz played live with drum pads and a laptop.
