Happy fitfh anniversary to Gumbo II: Pretty Ugly! Brenk Sinatra's 2011 masterpiece is celebrating its fifth birthday this summer. To celebrate the event Brenk has delved deeply into his archives and unearthed 20 (!) beats from the ''Gumbo II'' sessions that didn't made it on the album. So we are proud to announce ''Gumbo II: Pretty Ugly / Lost Tapes''. A double LP consisting of the original album on one platter and 20 brand new tracks from 2010-2011 on the other.
''Gumbo 2: Pretty Ugly'' was the follow-up to Brenk's slept-on instrumental masterpiece ''Gumbo'' (Supercity, 2008). Brenk brings together 70's soul with twisted electronica, analogue korg lines, Lil John ad-libs and police sirens, all backed by the most relentless grooves and drum-loops. While every track works for itself, ''Gumbo 2: Pretty Ugly'' takes you on a heavy ride through music history: From the embracing brazilian sounds of ''Perdido'' to the grimey talkbox craze of ''Wolves 2 (Still Hungry)'' or the prog-rock stompin' ''Hit U''.
