Fresh Sounds: Don’t Problem – CD’s Lament

South London-based 8-piece band Don't Problem is proud to present their new single CD's Lament, lifted from their forthcoming album Liminality planned for spring 2021. With their new album, the combo challenges the common perception of a "covers" brass band, exclusively writing original material and adding electronics, synths & strings, a reflection of their wide encompassing interests. They introduce us to a very personal journey; the moment in time where a brass band affirms their love for club culture and delivers an album that travels from heavy funk to psychedelic jazz and UK dance music.

The band says: "‘CD’s Lament' is an homage to Craig David. The single started with a chord and melody idea inspired by Garage music. Through our workshop-style rehearsals, this morphed into other heavy brass sections that are synonymous with our sound".

Don't Problem's debut DP EP combined the heavy funk and raw psychedelic sound of brass and drums with ferocious grime-inspired improvisation to deliver original and fresh music, aimed squarely at the dance floor.
The band is comprised of 8 musicians Ben Kelly (Sousaphone), Pat Kenny (Trombone), Louis Schultz Wiremu (Tenor Sax), Rudi Schultz Wiremu (Drums), Seb Silas (Baritone Sax), George Simmonds (Trombone), Jake Stoddart (Trumpet) and Sam Warner (Trumpet). Between them they have played with everyone from Tenderlonious, Emma Jean Thackray, Alfa Mist, Tom Misch and Ruby Rushton to Riot Jazz. The EP garnered support from BBC Radio 3 , Radio 2, Worldwide FM, Soho Radio, and made it into the Top 10 releases of The Vinyl Factory.
