The new Brasstracks EP is here! The Brooklyn-based duo has just delivered their groovy new EP, For Those Who Know Pt. 2, following up part one that dropped last year. The five-track release hones in on their distinct, funky brass sound while continuing to pull from genres such as hip-hop, alternative, and electronic. For Those Who Know Pt. 2 covers the spectrum with music ranging from deep, soulful orchestral arrangements to bouncy, energetic jams.
While we have been given a taste of the EP from its two singles, “Stay There” featuring Xavier Omär and “Too Far Too Fast” with Thirdstory, the other three tracks accompany them perfectly and flesh out the EP. As with Brasstracks’ previous “Improv #1,” “Improv #2” starts the EP with a bang with Robert Glasper again lending his piano and production talents and previous collaborators S’natra and Thirdstory laying down smooth vocals for the verse and chorus. Things heat up on “Moments,” a banging instrumental jam that sees Brasstracks incorporating bright organ keys and a fat synth bassline. “I’ll Sing About You” slows it down for a cinematic ballad wish spacey horns and reverberating choir vocals, lulling us into a dream as the journey comes to an end.
For Those Who Know Pt. 2 offers a captivating look at the world of Brasstracks. The EP successfully showcases their talents and the versatility of their sound. We are grateful to continue to be a part of this journey and look forward to what else Brasstracks have in store. Enjoy!
