Flying solo this week its myself Killian with a varied selection of beats. Theres some speaker-shaking beats in there this week most notably from Catnapp and the recent collaboration between Mancunians Virus Syndicate & North Base. Then theres some deep grooves from Kaiju, a roots vibe on the Hoodz cut and as usual theres a couple of freebies, this week supplied by Moth Equals and Subtle Mind. All nicely rounded with Mloski as the Transmit Sessions returns and he brings a deep and atmospheric vibe with a selection of his own work. Dig it.

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.

Soundphiles Meets Dom Hz

Soundphiles continue the exclusive mixes with Mancunian bass music producer, Dom Hz. Doms live sets make it clear that the boundaries of modern bass music are there to be blurred as he moves through vibes with intent. Alongside his own productions and remixes, Dom is also part of the collective, Joe Kalius which fuses the minds of DJ’s, producers and vocalists into one live experience and his recent side project, Stak One, which allows him to be more experimental, is also throwing up some incredible results. Accompanying the mix is an in depth interview where he goes to to explain each part of this solid repertoire. Lock in.
