BYOB’s first release is here to unearth the deeper, darker sounds of the brass ensemble. Reaching backwards through hip-hop sample culture, and forwards into free-flowing, soulful and collaborative composition, Family is music full of a profound energy.

The record draws inspiration from among BYOB’s 11-strong collective force, forging a way through dancefloor oriented music from the streets of Recife to the backstreets of Hackney, finding an irrepressible sound that is their own. Heavy collaborations from Kweku of Ghana and Lazy Habits pay respect to BYOB’s roots and look to the future as they continue to grow in stature, imagination and creativity - and connect with the world around them.

‘Family’ was recorded and produced by Tom Excell at Henwood Studios, and is launched on 23 March 2020 by Fake Fake Records Records Records on CD and digital platforms.
