Brasstracks release their first original track in a while to mark the launch of a new US tour with Big Gigantic. Still waiting for the Brooklyn horns to make their way to Amsterdam but this track will tide me over for the time being.
Been waiting for this one. Brasstracks drops their first original track in over 6 months and its worth the wait.
Today is good day. Because today is the day that Brooklyn’s Brasstracks have unleashed their debut Good Love EP on the world. I’ve been following these guys from the beginning, which hopefully means you all know how much I think of them – this 7 track EP, filled with original tracks, showcases the talent that has made them a sensation over the past 2 years. The newest track, Melanin Man featuring Masego, is yet another example of their special blend of R&B, Soul and Brass band.
A Lido, Heavy Mellow, Santell and Brasstracks cover of Sorry? Um, yes please. Horns, guitar, and RNB for the weekend BBQ.
Huge collaboration between the kings of brass, Brasstracks, infamous producer Lido and vocalist FatherDude as the Brooklyn boys gear up for their first tour of Europe.
Been looking forward to this one – my fellow Dutchman Jarreau Vandal spins his debut single from his new Suburb Superhero EP. With the help of amazing vocals from Niya Wells and the always excellent horns and drums from Brasstracks, Vandal is well on his way to creating a signature sound.
Another day, another Brasstracks masterpiece; it’s starting to get ridiculous. Their sound is so fresh and unlike anything else you will find out there at the moment, but its more than just the horns. It’s the tone and depth that they bring to their music making and the uplifting effect it has on us as listeners.
These guys are on fire! Believe in Brass!
Anderson Paak continues to impress with another stellar track that showcases his unique sound. Paak is a rising star in the R&B and Hip Hop world and teams up with Schoolboy Q for “Am I Wrong.” Unsurprisingly, he’s also working with excellent producers (like Pomo here) and musicians (like Brasstracks, who provided the horns) to create jiving backdrops for his songwriting. While he really broke through with his tracks on DRE’s Compton, I recommend giving Paak’s debut album Venice a listen if you haven’t already.
