|The Brand New Heavies are an acid jazz and alternative hip hop group formed in 1985 in Ealing, a suburb of London, England. Originally an instrumental rare groove group, the Brand New Heavies gained a cult following in the London club scene and soon signed to Cooltempo as acid house replaced rare groove in clubs.
The core members of the group are Jan Kincaid, Simon Bartholomew and Andrew 'Love' Levy.
The group began in the early 80's as 'Brother International'. Later they decided to rename the group with 'The Brand New Heavies' with singer N'Dea Davenport. They scored a lot of hits, especially in the 90's with: "Dream on Dreamer", "Midnight at the Oasis", "Spend Some Time" and "Never Stop".
