Boomkat Product Review:
Strong collection from the Katapult crew, featured artists including Rechenzentrum, Hefty’s Slicker, Kyborg, Apparat, Fenin, Magnum 38 and some talented new names, making the label clearly one to watch in coming months. Highlights include the awesome bass and drums of Munit’s ‘Prummer’, suspended continuous bottom end and fat beyond belief drums – what a tune! Kyborg deliver their usual quality selection, perhaps less dry than some of the music on their recent split with AGF for Neue Berliner. Hefty head honcho John Hughes runs a heavy steppers tempo digital dub, with circulating melodies, memorably titled ‘Untitled Dance Track’! The quality is kept up with Napoli is Not Nepal’s super downbeat excursion, all jazzual keys and tinkling little melodies. Elsewhere more dubwise scenarios from Fenin on their ‘Yellow Dub’, Berlin style o’course, Magnum 38 show themselves for the first time since their amazing ‘Revolver Track’s Ep – 13 tracks, focus, maximum width, but all with the persuasive Shitkatapult look on life. Killer.
