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.

Free To Download

In the gratis section this fortnight we have a heavy sack of loot for you to plunder. Support the artists where you can by liking and following their pages and maybe telling all your friends how great they are.

Starting off with this surging emotional future garage track from Kiro Rox we know we’ve struck gold already.

A few tracks into the mix and we’re in to a stunningly funky Maribou remix of Submotion Orchestra‘s track ‘Blindspot’. Stupendously good sounds.

From there we are hitting you square in the face with more freeness from Detz. This one is called ‘August’ and comes as part of a great ongoing series of free tunes based on calendar months. Click buy for the download.

Next is an apparently unfinished track from Inxect. To be honest, I can’t hear anything that needs changing. This is perfectly dark and eerie.

Next it’s Revilo with a sizzling track off the Disturbing Noise compilation which is available entirely for free if you just go and like their facebook page.

Finally Dublin based bass workers Your Local Vicar drop ‘The Grey Area’ in preparation for their forthcoming Rapture EP coming out on the Phantom Hertz label.

Ho Ho Ho!

Some more freebies just in time for Christmas.

Silent Code with a classy Drum & Bass remix of a Johnny Osbourne classic

Deep and moody dubstep from Ghost Note with ‘Bratva’

and lush vocal cut ‘Something About Her‘ from Hwood

Symmetry 009 – Break & Sato

Break returns with the latest release on his Symmetry imprint this time b2b with Gatesheads finest, Sato. Break opens the cut with the brooding ‘Framework‘. A deep roller with punchy drums with the crisp and infectious vibe we are coming to expect. Sato on the flip with ‘Clap Your Hands‘ which has a more musical and soulful vibe with some fresh vocals before the drop which takes the track right down and carries you through. Both tracks included on this weeks Robot Bodypop show, an excellent cut. Out now.
