Exclaim!'s Staff Picks: Brasstracks, Kemba & J. Hoard Are Positively Boisterous on "Dance Machine"
Published May 29, 2023Whether supporting hip-hop and R&B vocals or laying down dazzling horn-and-drum-driven grooves, Brasstracks instrumentals have never disappointed, and if their Indigo EP standout "Dance Machine" is any indication, they never will. A stank-face-inducing bassline moves at a furious pace under J. Hoard's earworm chorus and Kemba's verses before the signature Brasstracks trumpet steals the show as the song struts to the finish line. If any instrumental could be described as boisterous, "Dance Machine" would fit the bill, so if you find yourself unconsciously tapping your foot and nodding your head to the track's vibrant rhythm, don't worry — you're probably not alone.
