Instrumental soul, nujazz, Latin and funk blended with organic drum and bass, house and downtempo grooves. The dance floor influence can’t be denied- but listening is just fine.
NOTES
Taking inspiration from a variety of sources, Mo E All-Stars have created a unique sound around the originals, reworks and arrangements of pianist Mo Egeston.

Story

Brothers Lazaroff released "Science Won" in April of 2012. In the leading up to the release they asked different musical acts/friends to make lo-fi videos of themselves performing the various tunes on the album. The Lamar Harris (aka DJ Nune) and Thelonius Kryptonite collaboration on "Picking Up Sticks" planted the seed for a more formal remix - and from there it expanded. Brothers Lazaroff reached out to their favorite experimental, hip-hop, house, and electro producers and in some cases matched them up with some of their favorite lyricists and vocalists. Mainly looking to their local community - they also reached out to some old friends in other parts of the country.

While "Science Won" is not the most obvious album for remix - as it was recorded all live - not to a click track - with acoustic instruments - the results demonstrate the connectedness of all music and how its more about energy than style or genre.
Maurice Egeston plays keys in Brothers Lazaroff and also leads his own groups under the moniker Mo E. Mo has been making Brothers Lazaroff remixes for the 4 plus years he's been in the band and schooling them on electronic music in general. Mo connected with Elizabeth McQueen to complete the track - a frequent Brothers Lazaroff collaborator and best friend. Elizabeth McQueen Meet Brothers Lazaroff EP due out in the Spring!
