Catnapp – Make Your Speakers Boom

Buenos Airies born Catnapp is the first ‘one-girl’ band that I’ve ever encountered. Holding down production and mic duties herself and using only a DJ in a live environment to spin her beats while she goes in on the mic. Originally setting out to make drum&bass and breakbeat in 2009, her mission has taken her through many electronic sounds bringing us into 2012 with the release of the ‘Make Your Speakers Boom’ remix EP. It features the original track as well as remixes from underground producers from London, New York, Buenos Aires, Berlin, Barcelona as well as Paraguay, taking in Electro, Bass, UK Funky, Techno and several other musical styles. Oozing with pure attitude this is a strong release and with another 5 already under her belt, this girl is going to continue to mould and morph all the while refusing to be boxed in by musical boundaries.

The remix EP is available on Berlin based label IF THE KIDS

Check out Catnapps other releases here on her Bandcamp page and keep your eyes on Robot Bodypop for a full interview with the woman herself in the coming weeks.

Paper Tiger – Send Me

As promised a couple weeks back we have a brand new release from Paper Tiger hitting our playlist. This 3 track EP is typically eclectic for the group, whose influences include reggae, garage, glitch and hip hop. ‘Send Me’ has cutty 2 step vibes, with a nice sampled vocal and a funky rhythm track. There are 2 versions on this cut, track 3 being the live version, all recorded in one take with no overdubs. ‘Ask Me How I Am’ is a the tripped out B-Side with a deeper vibe. These are some accomplished live performers and I will keep emphasising this – GO AND SEE THEM LIVE!!! This will be your next opportunity;

Hootananny, LONDON

Eskmo: “Amphibian” free DL

This is an unreleased version of a track I wrote in 2008 called “Amphibian”. A year later i made an updated version just for fun. This is the result.

I had completely forgot and just found it today while gathering things together for my new Welder release: http://weldersounds.com

Enjoy.

Eskmo is a favourite of ours from way back, and whilst the track presented here is nearly 4 years in the making it still sounds as fresh as if it were made yesterday. Check out Eskmo’s groundbreaking self-titled album which is out on Ninjatunes. Watch www.eskmo.com for more from this talented San Francisco artist.
