Genre-bending brass band Dat Brass to perform sold out London gig at Camden Assembly on 1st December

Ten piece brass/hip hop band Dat Brass will headline Camden Assembly on 1st December.

This Autumn, the group have whipped up something special: dinner’s ready, and there’s a volatile blend of hip-hop, jazz and punk on the menu. Tuck in.

Though the ten gifted musicians that make up eclectic brass outfit Dat Brass come from a jazz background, it’s the bouncing beats and in-your-face attitude of old-school hip-hop that inspires them. Their latest album ‘Dinner’s Ready’ is a culmination of their collective influences that features improvised solos, crunching distorted bass, and incisive lyricism – and of course, the raucous tones of trumpet, trombone, saxophone and sousaphone.

Inspired by KRS-One, Royce da 5’9’’ Mouse Outfit and Kendrick Lamar, ‘Dinner’s Ready’ is a hard-core hip-hop record through and through. Complex flows, incisive lyrics and off-kilter rhyme schemes are supported by that unmistakably riotous brass sound, combining to create something that speaks to hip-hop heads, jazz fans and party people alike.

“The album was inspired by our developing influences and changing roster, allowing us to create new material with a greater variety of sounds and voices. “Dinner’s Ready is supposed to represent the culmination of our sound; taking different ingredients and cooking them up live across the UK ready for everyone to dig in…””

Dat Brass combine a jazzy, bombastic brass-band sound with the trappings of old-school hip hop and rap: turntable skills, boom-bap rhythms and explosive lyrics from a live MC. Their high-octane live shows have been a hit across the UK and beyond – for ‘Dinner’s Ready’ they’ve bottled the fire and energy of their live performance, presenting their bold and brassy sound in its purest form.

“Dinner’s Ready” is out now.
