I first heard The Hypnotic Brass Ensemble when we got the Tony Allen Remixes 12" in for Sankofa, all I can say is I was blown away, it sounded so dope I made it my mission to play it to anyone that would listen and needless to say it sold out quickly, was restocked and sold out quickly again and again and again. Heres the track for you to check
Something tells me laptop speakers won't do it justice so hunt down the 12", 2LP, CD or official download. They'll be at the Hare and Hounds playing live this Sunday along with Ben Westbeech (DJ and vocal set, he's sick too don't front), Adam Regan, Sam Redmore and FunkboxStolen Info...

Another Bank Holiday Sunday rolls around and we’ve pulled out all the stops to bring you a fantastic line-up of live music and DJs. Hypnotic Brass Ensemble are a band of horn-playing brothers from Chicago. In 1999 the brothers combined their efforts and began performing a new style of brass music they called "Hypnotic". In the past few years, they have travelled all over the world playing for audiences of all genres; opening up for the B52's, Talib Kweli, Mos Def, and most recently playing with Maceo Parker at Apollo Theater in Harlem.
And following the live show we’ve got the super-talented Ben Westbeech and one of his infamous DJ & vocal sets. He rocked the Bull’s Head to it’s foundations last year and we’re delighted to have him back for what promises to be another killer bank holiday at the H&H!
Oh finally the reason titled the post The Hypnotic...unrelated but soo good
