Gumbo II (Pretty Ugly) marks a new state of the art for sample-based productions. Taking his trademark formula to perfection, Brenk brings together 70's soul with twisted electronica, analogue korg lines, Lil John ad-libs and police sirens, all backed by the most relentless grooves and drum-loops. While every track works for itself, „Gumbo II (Pretty Ugly)“ takes you on a heavy ride through music history: From the embracing brazilian sounds of „Perdido“ to the grimey talkbox craze of „Wolves 2 (Still Hungy)“ or the prog-rock stompin' „Hit U“.
Austria representing, Brenk's new instrumental album "Gumbo 2 : Pretty Ugly" is available on Bandcamp, the wax will be released september the 23rd via MPM. Album has no competition, definitly one of the best sample-based instrumental releases in a while. (Stream the complete album after the jump)
