“Brasstracks’ jazzy horns and mixture of live and programmed percussion is a celebration of energy which [offers] a unique pleasure all its own.”
The FADER
“Equipped for both jazz lovers and hip-hop fanatics…[Brasstracks offers a] sound that’s driven by soulful brass but grounded to a funk beat.”
V Magazine
July 28, 2021—Today, Grammy Award-Winning duo Brasstracks debuts “Summertime 1, 2” featuring breakout artists Yung Pinch and Rothstein.The new track marks a creative rebirth for Brasstracks who are starting anew as they continue to release new music independently. Listen to/share the bop HERE.

 

​​“We made ‘Summertime 1, 2’ back in February, after a bunch of conversations with our record label at the time. They were always looking for ‘the one,’” notes Brasstracks’ co-founder Ivan Jackson. “Truth be told, it was a frustratingly broad task. But I called up one of my closest friends, Rothstein, and explained. We took a crack at what we thought ‘the one’ would sound like. Turns out the push from the label wasn’t that bad, because it feels like we hit gold with the chorus (and everything else that came afterwards). Once we came up with the concept, tapping in Yung Pinch was obvious. We’re all so ecstatic that we can get the song out in the middle of the summer—Rothstein and I might buy matching yachts and blast this one out on the docks.”

 

Rothstein furthers, “Before I linked with Brasstracks, I was making pretty miserable music—brooding, ominous, seething, quietly angry stuff. Brasstracks’ sonic palates were antithetical to everything I’d worked on before; they were full of sunshine and soul and real joy, and they forced me to find that bitter isn’t (and wasn’t) my only gear. Of all the 100+ happy songs we’ve written together, ‘Summertime 1, 2’ is the most joyous of all. It’s about all the things I love—hot weather, hot people, expensive clothes, cheap drugs and Cape Cod.”

 

In addition, Brasstracks confirms an extensive run of headline fall tour dates with emerging artist TOBi supporting. The run of North American performances kicks off in Chicago on September 30 and includes shows at New York’s Irving Plaza, Los Angeles’ The Fonda Theatre, Boston’s Paradise Rock Club,San Francisco’s Regency Ballroom, Denver’s Ogden Theatre,DC’s Union Stage and more. See below for the full tour routing.

 

Brasstracks was co-founded by Ivan Jackson and Conor Rayne while studying jazz at New York’s Manhattan School of Music. Since forming in 2014, the duo have become one of music’s most in-demand horn/percussion duos, collaborating with the likes of Harry Styles, Anderson .Paak, Khalid, Mark Ronson and Wyclef Jean. In 2016, Brasstracks produced Chance The Rapper’s hit single “No Problem,” which subsequently led to Grammy Wins for “Best Rap Performance” as well as “Best Rap Album” due to their contributions on Coloring Book.

 

Brasstracks released their debut album Golden Ticket in 2020 to widespread critical praise. The record featured an eclectic mix of collaborators, including modern rap and R&B titans such as Common, Masego, Tarriona “Tank” Ball of Tank & The Bangas, Robert Glasper and more.
