The Soul Rebels Brass Band have leaked a track off their upcoming mixtape and it may be the most NOLA thing ever. The track is a Gyspsyphonic Disko bounce remix of the brass band covering "Get Lucky" by Daft Punk and featuring increasingly omni-present Big Freedia on vocals. I've had the song on repeat all day.
The Soul Rebels have taken to playing the hook from Daft Punk's smash summer hit at concerts and have received a lot of positive feedback. For this track, the iconic New Orleans brass band and bounce artist teamed up with Gypsyphonic Disko (the musical duo formed by DJ Quickie Mart and Galactic's Ben Ellman) to take one of the summer's biggest hits and put it into overdrive. Fans of brass, bounce and just overall happiness in the world will love it.
The Soul Rebels' mix tape is scheduled to be released later this year. If this track is any indication, it will be a must-have for New Orleans music fans just in time for the holidays.
