After signing exclusively to Viper in 2013, the Brookes Brothers released more chart-topping singles, including 'Carry Me On' which was dubbed the 'Hottest Record in the World' by Zane Lowe on BBC Radio 1, and 'Anthem' which made it to BBC 1Xtra's 'A' List.
Now, six years after their first album was released on Fresh and Adam F's Breakbeat Kaos label, the Brookes Brothers have returned with their long-awaited sophomore LP, 'Orange Lane', another masterpiece that showcases the brothers' unmatched musicality and diversity.
The album features a variety of vocalists, including: Shezar's soulful vocals and Bossman Birdie's smooth rap breakdown complementing the empowering sounds of 'Flashing Lights' - while industry favourite Charlotte Haining lends her grace and charm to 'Waiting Right Here', and Pierre Da Silva adds a warmth to the acoustic sounds of 'Times Of Trouble', as well as the album closer 'We Got Love'.
Tracks like 'Movin' On', 'All About You' and 'So Many Times' give us a taste of classic Brookes Brothers funk and soul-driven Drum & Bass, while the opening track 'The One' (featuring ShockOne) engulfs us in a wall of bass and steel-pans to start the album off with.
Combining soul, funk, disco and a whole lot more in a way no one else can, the Brookes Brothers have truly reached new heights with this LP. 'Orange Lane' is destined to be a modern classic.
