London newcomer BrandNewTrumpets has signed to experimental electronic and d&b label, Diffrent Music.
Having met label co-founder Dexta under tragic circumstances, BrandNewTrumpets’ signing to the label proved to be the silver lining for all parties. Her debut on the label, ‘Ode To Olé’, is a sublime excursion through extradimensional electronics, dub and atmospheric d&b, with subtle nods to footwork and trip-hop.
The five-track release also owes a lot to jazz, being named after a 1961 piece by John Coltrane. Full of subtle complexity and transportive melodies, this EP is sparing and patient, but delivers dividends at its highest points.
One such high point is in ‘Pranayama’, the EPs most urgent cut, with an off-kilter rhythm gives a soft footwork flourish to the breathy electronics and trippy breaks. Check it out below.
'Ode To Olé’ is out on 16th October. Pre-order it here.
