The band, which consists of brothers Jan and Max Weissenfeldt, was previously known as the 'Poets of Rhythm' beginning in 1991. Under this name, they were signed to the Quannum Projects label after they were discovered by Lyrics Born. As the Whitefield Brothers, they released their debut album In the Raw in 2001 and their second album, Earthology, in 2010. Very possibly Soul Fire's finest full-length to date at least when it was released in early 2002, the Whitefield Brothers' debut album, In the Raw, is a stomping, muscular, fantastically heavy set of instrumental funk that packs a mighty wallop. It's somewhat different from the other releases by Germany's Poets of Rhythm, who are actually moonlighting here under the Whitefield Brothers' alias, but certainly compatible with their aesthetic.

For this belated follow-up to their 2001 debut In The Raw, the Munich-based Whitefield siblings Jan and Max have broadened their funk-soul approach with a range of African influences, albeit heavier, big-band flavours than those employed by Vampire Weekend. Drafting in members of Antibalas, Quantic and The Dap-Kings to give their sound a horn-based ballast, they've produced in Earthology a sort of world-jazz-groove album whose blend of camel-walk rhythms, burring saxes and spacey organ and electric piano resembles the more Afrocentric entries in Sun Ra's varied back-catal

Reviews of the The Whitefield Brothers - In The Raw (3):
Classic! (original cardboardpressing)
Every thing that MillionsDollars wrote is correct, i had to laugh that he/she called the people who missed the original sissies but if you see the cover on a record stand and see Soul Fire as the record label you better check this out because not only are the grooves RAW, the cover is heavy grade cardboard and the vinyl is some thick plastic like is was built like a Hummer trust me you need this because records stopped being made like this years ago.
This was the last album released by the great Soul Fire Records from New York. I got my copy in the first week of it's release back in 2002 and from what I remember this might have been Soul Fire Records' most successful long player and sold out in a few months. No wonder if you take a look at the eclectic and timeless music that the Munich based brothers Jan and Max Weissfeld deliver on this masterpiece. It's really difficult to categorize these heavy soundscapes in fact. Too cosmopolitan to call it african-influenced, too raw to call it just funk and too dirty to call it soulful but in the end you end up somewhere between these genres and have to decide for yourself.
By no means this heavyweight single record album packed in thick cardboard sleeve with vintage cover design should not be missing in a true music connoisseur's collection! Also make sure you have the 7" and the 10" single with the bonus cuts "The Bastard", "Chokin" and "Rampage" not including on the original album. Some people probably picked this up because of the Poets Of Rhythm fame and knew this has to be some quality music but some just put this on and got their mind blown away...
(The sissies who missed or slept on this in 2002 had the chance to pick this up as a Now Again Records double LP reissue only seven years later in 2009.)
