Wine on me 'til it hurts I wanna see you sweat, I wanna see you work And make that thing do a little jerk And we can horizontal shuffle from the bed to the earth Wine Dat Gyal Work dat gyal Push it up, jerk it up Mess it up, f*** it up Wine up wine down, move it all around I'm'a stand still while you take it to the ground Tell me how the Caribbean likes to get down Something similar to a merry go round You know us, we stay toothpaste fresh Arm and hammer, colgate crest PitchBlak Brass, you rocking with the best We give you what you need, never nothing less We can horizontal shuffle, gon' give me that bubble Take off my shirt, unbuckle my belt buckle When I saw her I said 'Uh Oh' Damn there she go body looking beautiful now she Wine real slow Now she dancin' and I like the way she moves it She like the band and she like the reggae music So Wine Dat Gyal if you know you lookin' fancy Wine Dat Gyal if you know ya' eye candy
Once I saw The Light And they told me To stay in the dark Then I freeze all night In shameless truths Trapped in my mind Then I saw The Light And they told me To find a voice Now I saw The Light Darkness it goes everything around me Signs of failure all surround me Abandon all hope, ye who enter here It's hard as hell trying to confront your fears And still stay afloat with your peers Cause you gotta make it somehow by the end of the year The pressure makes my head want to burst My life is a curse There's only few by hurt Is it real? Or is it my imagination? Do I have my keys to my own emancipation? Trying to summon up the strength to complete the mission Trying to make it worthwhile because there are people listening Sometimes losing your vision is the best lesson The true path might be seen in a different spectrum I give up my sight for The Light The universe as my guide 'til I die I saw The Light And they told me To stay in the dark Now I freeze all night In shameless truths Trapped in my mind Then I saw The Light And they told me To find a voice Now I saw The Light
Let it drop like a hammer Nail it to the coffin it's that PitchBlak banger New frontier you can call us the game changer You best to tread lightly, yo watch out, danger So proceed with caution A ten and "o" record, straight wins no losses We upper management can say that we straight bossin' Yeah, the ladies say I'm f***in' awesome Fresher than a dew drop, conservatory kids wildin' out damn who thought We could start this musical wild fire, we too hot No need to get offended 'cause we so fly you not Call it pure domination Let these sound waves send your mind on vacation I see you waiting but I beg you to be patient So sit back, and enjoy Anticipation Anticipation PitchBlak Brass swaggin' in surround sound You can find me swaggin' all around town Wait a second, Stop the clock Bring it back now let the beat drop Yeah I'm on Ready, set, go no Anticipation Out here killin' every track I'm on You can try and hate but my flow's too strong, I'm gone I agree I'm right you're wrong My team's in flight while your team's at home Rip it up like a storm……….Cyclone Handle my business like I'm grown And I'm on a mission No pope, no cardinal, no bishop People tryin' to find a way to obtain wisdom But if you just stop take a moment and listen


PitchBlak Brass Band present's the DELUXE EP! In the Deluxe version of the EP, PitchBlak includes brand new LIVE recordings from their packed-house performance at Brooklyn Bowl.

Track 5, "The Light" written by Chanell Crichlow, TUBA{{FReSH}}, is a song inspired by the harsh realities and feelings as a young gay person of color. The song is an anthem of sorts, starting off quiet and smooth with the lush vocals of Jackie Morales which then drives into a thoughtful verse by TJ Robinson (AKA MC Fresh Peak). Alison Shearer (AKA The Crag) brings the song to new heights with a prolific solo. Finally, the band comes back together and hits the ending with a hard, meaningful chorus guided by Jackie's vocals and The Guitar Wizard Benjamin Brody floating above it all.

Track 6, "Anticipation" written by Anthony Barfield, was inspired by Anthony's experience of going to PitchBlak shows and seeing how the band has evolved over time. Anticipation is all about getting the crowd hyped and interacting with the band. The piece is heavily inspired by traditional classical elements, while meshing modern day hip-hop into the mold. A true arranger and orchestrater, Barfield included in the arrangement when Bryan Walters (AKA MC Dubs) and MC Fresh Peak should stop playing in advance of their verses, which provides for a smooth on-stage performance of the piece. Anthony Barfield is an active trombonist and composer in every discipline of contemporary and traditional music. You can find more of Mr. Barfield's music and activities at www.anthonybarfield.com

PitchBlak Brass Band Brooklyn, New York

Epic sounds of tubas, trombones, saxophones and other typically non-hip hop instruments in the spirit of The Roots and some of rap’s iconic live bands, to deliver an energy that samples, loops and breakbeats can’t always capture. Their blend of soundscapes and lyrical exuberance creates a grand adventure in listening, one that can hold the attention of music fans from across a fairly wide spectrum ... more
