Hypnotic Brass Ensemble - BiographyHeralded as one of the best live shows in the world at the moment, the momentum gathering behind the Hypnotic Brass Ensemble is nothing short of staggering. Booked to play Glastonbury, The Big Chill, Lovebox and many more of the premier festivals in Europe this summer, Hypnotic are set to be a huge draw wherever they play.

We know people who claim that they know of no other band of this calibre that have such mass appeal and their shows are famed for attracting everyone from jazz cats, punks to soul boys and techno freaks, their music is that infectious.

With fans including Barack Obama, David Byrne, Q-Tip, Madlib, Jay-Z, Erykah Badu, Jools Holland and the soon-to-be-announced news that they (along with Mos Def and Tony Allen) will be the new Gorrilaz outfit, this band is no ordinary collective. Eight brothers, all the sons of Sun Ra Trumpeteer and songwriter Phil Cohran, playing since they were three years of age, Hypnotic have a heritage deeper than most bands will ever attain.

Damon Albarn's 'Honest Jon's' label are about to drop the Hypnotic's first official full length studio album in May, an album which will receive full marks from any journalist worth their salt. Hypnotic's values of sound, form and structure in their musicianship and songwriting hold the live show together tighter than anything you have seen before, putting a lot of bands who are in the limelight to shame.

This is the real deal folks - music the way it was meant to be. From the heart, from the lungs. These guys don't need to plug in to be heard. As they say themselves, they could play on a boat in the dark - they're powered from within. US President Brack Obama is a huge fan (his Chicago constituency is their hometown), inviting them to perform and help on his rallies in the run up to his presidency.
