At year end it’s pretty much 100% guaranteed that one of the songs that will find itself sitting pretty near the top of the Breaking More Waves ‘irresistibly happy’ list will be Down With The Trumpets by Rizzle Kicks. Its brassy grooves and ska-bound rhythms have managed to re-invent and merge the sounds of The Specials and De La Soul in one youthful modern package and bring the bounce wherever it’s heard.
With a well-received Radio 1 Big Weekend slot and a having spread the word further with a number of shows at Brighton’s Great Escape it’s onwards and upwards for Rizzle Kicks and that starts with a slightly re-worked version of Down With The Trumpets (the original which we first featured in November 2010 now cast into the hidden dark chambers of the internet) plus a new video and a Wookie remix that was given its first spin out on the radio courtesy of BBC Radio1 Xtra's MistaJam last Saturday. You can purchase the track on June 12 on iTunes.
