There’s something to be said about the kind of magic that happens when you get a sonic ensemble like Youngblood Brass Band together. Double the sense of aural wonderment when said band puts down their own spin on an arguable classic like Chaka Khan’s Ain’t Nobody.
The track hits you in the face with YBB’s sense of musicianship and doesn’t let up. After spending the better part of the day programming more laid back, hazy joints for our URB readers, this was a welcome (and energetic) change of pace. Totally something to get you through the rest of the day. With just the right dose of brass and percussive elements carrying through the track, chalk this track up in the win column for the fam with Youngblood Brass Band.
On top of this musical goodie that YBB was gracious enough to drop in our laps, they have announced their tour and the September 10th release of their forthcoming album Pax Volumni via Tru Thoughts. Peep the science below for more info on their tour and a link to pre-order Pax Volumni.
