When you’re tired and down, you can always turn to music to lift your spirits, like that of the funky band Brass Pas Pas Pas Pas.
Led by award-winning film composer and music director Francis de Veyra, Brass Pas Pas Pas Pas is a 10, sometimes 11 or even 12 piece band made up of some of the country’s finest session musicians who span the gamut of genres from du jazz to swing, blues to disco and funk.
Those looking for good music can turn to their new tracks – “Tayo Na’t Mag-Funk” and “Disko Na”—both released digitally in time for their one-month anniversary in October.
“Tayo Na’t Mag-Funk” and “Disko Na” were composed by BPPPP vocalist Mike Luis and arranged by De Veyra.
Both songs were recorded, mixed and mastered at Wombworks Audio Productions by Jean-Paul Verona.
According to Luis, “Tayo Na’t Mag-Funk” is a “party song that pays homage to classic 70s funk bands, such as Sly & The Family Stone, Parliament Funkadelic, Earth Wind & Fire, Bootsy Collins, etc. .”
De Veyra, on the other hand, describes “Disko Na” as a modern disco song with retro vibes and Manila Sound, a tribute to the musical influences of Hotdog, The Boyfriends, VST & Co. and others.
Released under Funkybeat Entertainment, “Tayo Na’t Mag-Funk” and “Disko Na” are available on all major music streaming apps including Spotify, Apple Music, Deezer, YouTube, Amazon Music and Anghami.
Brass Pas Pas Pas Pas will also be holding an anniversary show at 123 Block at Mandala Park, Mandaluyong City today, October 8, during which they will debut the music videos for “Tayo Na’t Mag-Funk” and “Disko Na .”
The band also worked with Backspacer Records for a vinyl record, a collection of their “Greatest HITS” remastered by Kodama Studio’s Shinji Tanaka, which will also be released during the show.
The anniversary event will also feature sets from Zsaris, Basically Saturday Night, Leanne & Naara and Ang Bandang Shirley. Singers Bing Austria and Faye Yupano will also perform with the group.
