Ivan Jackson and Conor Rayne, better known as the originative beat-crafting duo Brasstracks, are wrapping up a whirlwind summer of festival appearances and scattered releases with “Those Who Know,” an unexpected twist on their own conventions.
Featuring the familiar aspects of a Brasstrack’s tune, polished electronic form and spirited horn highlights, this project breaks their tried and true mold by introducing Jackson’s vocals for the first time. After a first listen you’ll wonder why they didn’t take this approach sooner. His voice glides effortlessly over the bass-infused groove like so many of their featured artists before him, a perfect compliment to their unique music-making style.
