May 24, 2007

Dear Everyone, please try to be as awesome as Hypnotic Brass Ensemble. We featured them in the current issue, and they're making it easy for us to keep yacking about it. First, we got the above video of Hypnotic playing their new remix of Tony Allen's "Losun" with mama Maia ripping vocals at their show a few weeks ago in LA. Second, we read this on their blog:

Yeah yo...Lincoln Center...Brooklyn Academy of Music...makes sense that now we're set to play a JAMES BROWN TRIBUTE at the APOLLO THEATER with MOS DEF. That'll be June 11. It's a benefit for the Apollo in memory of JB so you know there's gonna be plenty of light and heat in the place. Plus Maceo is schedule to perform!

So of course we went back to the Tube and found this little preview of that with Mos & Hypnotic soundchecking a Madvillain joint. And thus, a rich and informative blog post was born.
