South London-based eight-piece band Don't Problem present their new album Liminality. Their first three singles "King Kong", "Whale", and "CD's Lament" gathered very strong support with from the likes of Mary Anne Hobbs, Jamz Supernova, Tom Robinson, WorldWide FM, BBC London, Jazz FM, Soho Radio, Amazing Radio, Radio Nova, Fip, and more. With their new album, the combo challenges the common perception of a "covers" brass band, exclusively writing original material and adding electronics, synths, and strings, a reflection of their wide encompassing interests. They introduce you 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. "As eight people writing music together, sometimes it can take a while for a tune to fully take shape. This tune came into itself in the studio which gave us the space to explore the production, sonic possibilities and instrumentation. The opening section leads to a beautiful first-take flugelhorn solo driven by lush strings, pulsing horns and electronics before reaching its soaring conclusion. The title 'Whale' is in reference to the Whale emoji which we use as a way to express a greatness or joy for which words can't be found." 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 dancefloor. The band is comprised of eight musicians who've played with everyone from Tenderlonius, Emma Jean Thackray, Alfa Mist, Tom Misch, and Ruby Rushton to Riot Jazz. 180 gram vinyl.
