UK record label Chasing Unicorns are giving away this 4 track EP by Brabe as a good sounding seasonal gift, including a jazz cover of R. Kelly.
Opening with a piano driven piece of neo-soul that sounds like someone tried to have an R&B career in the mid ’90s but went a little too jazz for it to be a success, Brabe digs through the Urban Torque back catalogue, spinning a mix of acapellas, edits and bootlegs into a uniquely jazzy piece of music that seems to jump from track to track with no care. The rest of the EP continues to develop along the jazz influences, pulling in hip-hop references and swung beats. Finishing on “I’m a Jazz Crime”, Brabe puts some beautifully erratic jazz under an R. Kelly vocal to serious effect!
