DJ Brace Presents The Electric Nosehair Orchestra in Nostomania



Canadian DMC champion, DJ Brace, presents an instrumental hip hop album built from a crate filled with familiar sounds and things you’ve never heard. In the mysterious Electric Nosehair Orchestra, each nosehair is distinctively titled (NH1-NH14) to correspond with visual artwork, guiding the listener through the Nostomanian experience. The album drops July 19th on Winnipeg’s Balanced Records.

    My Nose Hairs are Tingling w/ Flute Integration.
    Buy this LP when it drops.
    Your Nostrils will be more than happy.

  24. short-e

    Tight fresh cuts, intelligent vibes. All around hip hop goodness.

  25. The tone of this record is brilliant… integrating sampled records and sampled instruments to deviate slightly from other ‘instrumental hip-hop albums’… A lot of records have re-worked the jazz stylings of Bob James and David Axelrod to give them a pure hip-hop feel, but Nostomania seems to be pushing the other way – it’s an undeniably hip-hop album that should have a strong appeal for the jazz crowd. Great stuff.

  26. I’ve known brace for a long time now, and can guarantee the man’s soul went into this project as with everything he does, and it paid off, this is a project that transcends genres and sets the bar for Canadian producers/beat makers good job brother, PROPS OVER THERE!

    on another note check him out on the Joints! show this week Wednesday July 16th at midnight! on 101.5 UMFM on the call-in tip.
