How to approach dubbing primarily just horns? Answer - just like any dub mix. Find the groove, find the melody, find the drop outs. It was a first, a unique and great experience. This is the result.
Featuring three hard-hitting Heavyweights originals – and one wacky cover – this EP may be the innovative collective’s strongest statement yet.
Collaboration is the name of the game, with three of this country's top artists contributing to this release: DUBMATIX (remix), ROBI BOTOS (keyboard) and KEVIN BREIT (guitar). All three are recognized internationally for producing some of the finest music in their respective styles.
Complementing the original compositions is the band’s wild New Orleans-style remake of Robin Thicke’s still-controversial hit “Blurred Lines.”
“We recorded a surplus of material at the Brasstronomical sessions and we wanted to hold on to some of the strongest cuts for a later release,” explains bandleader and trombonist Christopher Butcher. “We’ve been playing these songs live for the last two years and it was a great opportunity to bring in some collaborators that aren't just friends, but artists that we deeply admire.”
Founding trumpet player Jon Challoner, on a leave of absence to study at Juilliard in New York, will be on hand for the show. Breit and Botos will be open the evening as a duo, before the Heavyweights take the stage, and DJ General Eclectic will keep the party going late into the night.
"The Heavyweights Brass Band have solidified their place as one of the finest ensembles of it's kind in Canada. I hope their truly original voice is heard around the world” ~Ross Porter JazzFM
“One of the most exciting music projects on the Canadian music scene today.” ~ Alex Cuba "The future of music" ~ Giovanni Hidalgo
"Blown away by this thoroughly fresh piece of cultural collaboration. Never heard anything like this before!"
~ Gilles Peterson, (DJ, Record Collector/Producer, BBC Radio 1 Personality)
