"Don’t Problem announce their arrival with 6-tracks of brassy-as-f**k, heavy funk grooves from South London. Some of the capital’s finest horn blowers unite on a deep and dastardly debut that takes the pulse of a city whirling in jazz trance into new realms of sonic consciousness. While tracks like ‘Jacques’ and ‘Judo Chop’ pack a festival punch, the street-wise arrangements of ‘Wavy’ and ‘Rangoon’ elevate DP EP above your dirge-like colliery band fare. Instead, fans of The Comet Is Coming, or Malcolm Catto’s psych-outfit Heliocentrics should take note. Just don’t call them a brass band."

Vinyl Factory

DON'T PROBLEM is an all original band made up of brass musicians and drums from South-East London.   We are the most innovative brass band in the UK combining a completely unique mix of genres and huge brass beats that fills dance floors and keeps people there. Our last release the "DP EP" was voted one of the 10 best vinyl releases by the Vinyl Factory of which you can find a link to below. We have played across London at some of its coolest and largest venues, been on the Radio (BBC Radio 3 for Soweto Kinch, Worldwide FM, Soho Radio, Hoxton Radio, Wandsworth Radio for GWJazz, Jazz FM) and played internationally in India.DON'T PROBLEM is the best brass band out there. We do things differently to the standard New Orleans/Colliery/Covers brass band you might have heard. Whilst still keeping our music accessible to the jazz scene.
