Spottie - Hypnotic Brass Ensemble.
The other day I was listening to “SpottieOttieDopaliscious” by OutKast, off their album Aquemini, released in 1998. If you know “SpottieOttieDopaliscious” then you would agree that there is something powerful and sexy about that infectious beat that is complimented by the smooth voice of Andre 3000.
It all had me wondering whether “SpottieOttieDopaliscious” had ever been sampled by other artists. I then discovered that OutKast had actually included excerpts from “Dancing With the Moonlit Knight”by British rock band Genesis. But it has been “Spottie” by the Hypnotic Brass Ensemble (HBE) that has been on repeat. HBE is an eight-piece brass ensemble / family affair. The band is made-up of the eight sons of jazz trumpeter Phil Cohran. With only drums and horns, their music style ranges from jazz, funk, hip-hop and rock.
