Long awaited debut "55" is finally being released on Brooklyn's own Big Crown Records. 55 is a journey through re-interpolations and covers with an updated approach, pushing Steel Pan music to uncharted territory. From the smoothed out Reggae cover of John Holt's "Police In Helicopter" to the DJ sure shot cover of Faith Evan's "Love Like This" BRSB's 55 is reinvigorating tunes both well-known and helping to shed some light on tunes still largely undiscovered. If the 45s that have already come out on Mocambo, Plane Jane, and Truth & Soul are an indication, this full length is going to be a staple to both casual listeners and DJs alike.
