Jazz fusion, dance and brokenbeat group Brotherly are putting their back catalogue on vinyl for the very first time on Whirlwind Recordings.
The Brotherly duo - Anna Stubbs and Rob Mullarkey - made their mark in the mid-2000s, immersing themselves in brokenbeat and club culture. Their crossover style has helped inspire many respected contemporary names, including Moses Boyd and Jordan Rakei.
Celebrating the new collection, the group are showcasing their latest release with an unreleased track alongside three reworked tracks, which includes a breathtaking remix of 'Raindown' from brokenbeat legend Kaidi Tatham, which we're exclusively premiering ahead of the single's release.
Tapping into the track's bouncing and syncopated rhythms, multi-instrumentalist Kaidi Tatham sits right at home here, bringing greater energy through his clav and synth sounds. This renewed energy makes the rework even more effervescent and exciting before, with the soaring synths electrifying the track through conversing with Mullarkey's pulsating bassline and Stubbs' voracious vocals. The centre of the track naturally allows Tatham to show his craft, giving him space to riff and solo with grace.
Brotherly's Analects, which features an exciting host of new guests, is out December 4th 2020 via Whirlwind Recordings, available as a double gatefold LP, on CD and digitally, and is available to pre-order here.
