Catnapp – Slow

Jun 16 2020

Berlin label Monkeytown Records was founded by Modeselektor and they’ve signed Argentinean born but Berlin-based artist Catnapp and on the single track “Slow” (a prelude to her EP “Damage” that will be released on June 26th) we get bone-crunching bass vibes with crystal synthy electro sounds thrown in, fine-sounding rap lines, along with subtle vocals.

Every saturday we do a segment where we choose our favorite new track on the mighty radio show known as Babylon which is aired on Italian Radio station Rai 2. This saturday is the final episode of the season and it’s a glitzy Christmas special where we get to hear all sorts of goodies, so tune in tomorrow evening between 22-01.

As an added bonus the Babylon crew gets various guests to do mini party mixes, grab the ones from Modeselektor and Discobelle Records favorite Polish techno duo Viadrina below.

So, this is the deal. Radiohead – one of the most iconic and creative groups of the last two decades recently released their album “The King Of Limbs” and now they put together a remix album which basically features a who’s who of modern British dance music producers.

The “TKOL RMX 1234567” double CD brings together all 19 remixes that form the band’s current 12” vinyl singles series and will be released on XL Recordings come October 10th. It showcases an absolute arsenal of desolate, post dubstep beats and dreamlike soundscapes from producers such as Caribou, Jacques Greene, Nathan Fake, Harmonic 313, Mark Pritchard, Lone, Pearson Sound, Scavenger, Four Tet, Thriller, Illum Sphere, Shed, Brokenchord, Altrice, Blawan, Modeselektor, Objekt, Jamie xx, Anastam and SBTRKT.

“After the festival season 2010 ends it’s time to show a sign of life as Modeselektor. So it happens impressively with the kick start of a new album series called Modeselektions. Accompanied by carefully selected events around the globe Modeselektor invited 20 of their current favourite electronic music artists to participate with unreleased and exclusive tracks, of which 18 are to be found on this CD.

Names like 2562 (A Made Up Sound), Robag Wruhme (Wighnomy Brothers), Marcel Dettmann, Shed, Mala (Digital Mystikz), Tadd Mulinix (Dabrye, James T. Cotton), Feadz, Siriusmo, Apparat, Ramadanman, Ikonika, Cylob and many more sound impressive not only to hippsters and specialists, DJs and journalists, but also to the „normal” fan of electronic music.”
