Sunny Side Up - The Undefinable Sound of Melbourne's Rising Underground

Double Vinyl

Recorded during a week spent at The Grove studio, Sunny Side Up was helmed by musical directer Silentjay, and engineered bay Nick Herrera.

The nine tracks incorporate “deep house, broken beat, cha-cha, samba, p-funk and soul,” shares Brownswood. “Unlike other cities with storied histories in jazz culture, the sound of Melbourne is free of any jazz customs to follow behind, leaving musicians free to incorporate hip hop, house or R&B. Jazz is the mindset, the output is infinitely diverse.”It features contributions from artists and groups including members of  30/70 and Mandarin Dreams.

Sunny Side Up follows Brownswood’s We Out Here compilation, which captured a cross-section of London’s jazz-influenced musicians though nine original compositions.
