#Hypnotic Brass Ensemble

Prince with Hypnotic Brass Ensemble!!

I put on the Bulletproof Brass record for a friend who had never heard anything by the Hypnotic Brass Ensemble before. His response? "This music has balls. Why don’t they play it on the radio?"

Hypnotic Brass Ensemble - Kryptonite

I’ll be seeing these guys tonight. Should be fun.

So a brass band released a fine hiphop EP last year. Is there anything these dudes can’t do?

One thing is certain, Bulletproof Brass by the Hypnotic Brass Ensemble is a banger. Kryptonite is a great song. Guaranteed that it will have you bobbing your head. Guaranteed!

NYC, you don’t know how lucky you were to have these guys perform on the streets for years. You have to pay to see the Hypnotic Brass Ensemble gig now, and you know what? It’s worth every penny. They deserve it and have paid their dues.

For Narcis, The Hypnotic Brass Ensemble are incredible live. I am fortunate to say that I have seen them live so many times, I’ve lost count. They used to play on the streets in NYC. I would catch them in Union Square or Washington Square Park. Especially when the weather warmed up. They were always out there performing. If they swing by Spain, go catch them. They were featured on the new Gorillaz album as well.
I know you have an awesome system Narcis. Make sure you grab their album on vinyl. It’s the way to hear their full spectrum sound. Do your Clearaudio turntable justice! It’s put out on the Honest Jon label. It sounds incredible. Really powerful sound.
