GPWW 8/9/10: Hypnotic Brass Ensemble Feature

Despite the bad weather which kept us off the rooftop, we were very grateful for Gilles Petersons secret performance at NYC Soho House on Sunday; he played a killer set and naturally got the crowd moving. If you too want to be included in the hippest swanky events, always featuring quality music, follow our tweets for exclusive event entrances, plus crafty art and vinyl contests. 

This week on GPWW, Gilles Peterson features the words and sounds of the Hypnotic Brass Ensemble. Their interview reveals a lot about the group: from their introduction to brass instruments and what they’ve been through to what’s next for them as a band. The first part of the show is mostly old favorites interspersed with brand new music from artists like Nia Andrews and Marcos Valle.

Colin Munroe Covers Prince + MP3

The producer we’ve all had our eyes on, Colin Munroe, is back with a bold move: releasing a cover of Prince‘s “I Would Die 4 U.” His 2008 mixtape Colin Munroe is the Unsung Hero left us wanting more, so the delayed full-length (Don’t Think Less of Me) is high up on our radar. Colin let this download out to his fans as a little reminder not to think less of him.
