Sousamaphone by Riot Jazz Brass Band - First Word Records [FW106] FLAC download included with physical items


A 8 track funk album (32m 1s) — released August 16th 2013 on First Word Records

Following on from their storming debut single in May, Riot Jazz Brass Band are back with a full-length album of horn-fuelled dancefloor heaters. The Manchester-based group have been making waves for 5 years now, blowing away audiences across Europe with their infectious live shows. Based around the creative nucleus of Nick Walters (Trumpet) and Steve Pycroft (Drums) they take their influences from the likes of Hot 8 Brass Band and Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, adding an unmistakably Mancunian twist.

The live shows are fronted by crowd favourite MC Chunky and their unstoppable vibe has seen them play at a host of festivals including Big Chill, Bestival, Glastonbury, Soundwave and Womad. Across nine tracks, the album showcases everything that's great about the band. From the unstoppable grooves of uptempo cuts 'Corn On The Cob' and 'Slinky' to the deeper, tougher sounds of 'Paradox' and 'Necropolis' it's quality all the way; all-killer no-filler! Look out for them at a festival near you in the coming months.
