Kelan Philip Cohran & The Hypnotic Brass Ensemble - Roust About x Stateville

Moving away from their usual Hip-Hop/Funk sound, here are my two favourite tracks from The Hypnotic Brass Ensemble's new collaborative album with Kelan Philip Cohran. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the HBE, they are a Chicago-based band featuring a drummer and eight brothers on assorted horns (trumpets, trombones, bari horn and sousaphone). Cohran is their octogenarian father, and is an important figure in music history, having played trumpet for Sun Ra, mentored Earth Wind & Fire and travelled the world in search of musical and spiritual enlightenment. Together they have created something a bit different to what most HBE fans will be used to, but it's still hypnotic and uniquely refreshing. Support.

Bobby Womack - Love Is Gonna Lift You Up

After having surgery and being cleared of his illness last month, Bobby Womack, the King of Soul, is now ready to drop his new album 'Bravest Man In The Universe'. The album is his first release in over 18 years and is produced entirely by Richard Russell & Damon Albarn - it has a much more modern and edgy feel to it, which is very remeniscent of Gil Scott's 'I'm New Here'. Hopefully this isn't Bobby's last body of work though, because it's pretty damn special and he clearly still has a lot to offer. June 11th is the date - THIS IS MY JAM!!!

Demarkus Lewis - Hustle Mania

Sampling the classic Disco track 'The Hustle' by Van McCoy & the Soul City Symphony, here is the latest single from London-based producer Demarkus Lewis. The original became one of the most well-known Disco anthems of all-time back in the Summer of 1975, and this is without doubt one of my favourite House tracks of the Summer so far. LOVE! BUY!
