Music Composer Portfolio Music Production Brass Hip Hop Album

The brief for the album was to create 15 tracks of Brass Hip Hop music taking influences from bands such as The Roots, Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, N.E.R.D, Mark Ronson, John Newman, Daft Punk to name a few. The markets for these tracks were promos, adverts, sports montages and action sequences so the music had to be energetic, loud and lively so that it jumps out of the speakers.

This album has already had some high profile placements including Top Gear, Inside the NFL, the BBC Wimbledon coverage, Bargain Hunt (BBC1), The One Show (BBC1). CBBC, Fern Britton(BBC1) and many others.

We were very keen to feature a large amount of live musicians on this album including a brass section, live drums, bass, electric guitar and synths. A massive thank you to the musicians for playing on the album. David Kelly (drums), Biff Roxby (trombone), Matt Burke (trumpet) and Paul Bryan (sax).
