New Jalapeno signing Sam Redmore is all On The One on his debut 45 with Renegade Brass Band and emcee/ poet Mr Auden Allen. Is this a celebration of the rhythmic structure of the funk or a call for racial unity? Turns out it’s both – or maybe we should say ‘all one’ to those concerned. Expect frantic rolling drum breaks, Latin percussive and piano stylings and more brass than a barful of comedy soap opera landladies. Man, that is a lot of brass. Should certainly have punters behaving in the desired manner, again, not unlike a barful of comedy soap opera landladies. Turns out an album follows in the spring. Watch this space.
