You Record are proud to present their eleventh release, the ‘Kant Straße’ EP by S Katz aka Katsuhiko. From 2016 – 2017 he was granted the opportunity to produce multiple tracks at a studio on KantStraße in Berlin using hardware supplied by Dandy Jack, with whom the space is shared, and his dear friend Mathew Jonson. Opening track is a groove-driven roller with robotic glitches talking a language of their own. ‘Hats and Steps’ is a versatile dancefloor cut replete with subtle details and layered rhythms. ‘Forest In Me’ takes a trippy journey to the afterhours with immersive field recordings and entrancing blips. Closing the EP is ‘You Are In The Display’, a truly weird vocoder-led track with swung percussion and a shuffling bass melody. This EP serves as a prologue to S Katz’s forthcoming album.
NØICE Records continue to establish themselves with another excellent new EP. This one comes from Moscow’s psypad, who never uses samples and records every aspect of his own music. This EP mixes up his house and techno styles into two fresh new tracks. Both were made during one-take live sessions with analogue synths and without a DAW, so are filled with an authentic and impromptu energy. “Neon Dusk” is first and is an uplifting and cosmic house tune with magical lead synth lines that dance about in the night sky. Driving drums power the track along and it oozes real atmosphere and warmth, as well as musical skill. “Daybreak” is a slower track with elastic bass and icy percussion. It’s still deep and grand in scale, and takes you on a real trip through the galaxies. This is expressive and emotive music that pairs a real sense of groove with meaningful melodies and chords.
In 1992, under the pseudonym JayDee he released the hit “Plastic Dreams“, which reached number-one on the US Billboard Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart. The song, an instrumental, featured a prominent Hammond organ-style synthesizer melody, played in a jazzy, improvised manner. “Plastic Dreams” continues to be remixed and re-released today, mostly on unsolicited white labels. The track made the UK Singles Chart on two occasions; firstly in September 1997 when it reached number 18, and again in January 2004, when it reached number 35. He now releases a great down-tempo track.
Whenever he plays guitar, his signature sound, showcasing influences such as Jimmy Page and John Sykes, melt into a timeless and nuanced amalgamut. Next to the landmark releases Myles created with Slash and Alter Bridge, the exceptional singer has quietly busied himself with working on his solo debut. A piece his gigantic fan base has demanded loudly for years and years is now made flesh in form of Year Of The Tiger – an album that also gives Myles Kennedy the opportunity to process his father`s death and is therefore his most personal and emotionally challenging record yet. Tracks like ‘Love Can Only Heal‘ will suck the breath out of your lungs with their raw intensity, wrapping you in soaring guitar cascades. ‘Blind Faith‘ thrives on melancholic Americana, and frenzied uptempo blues marks ‘Devil On The Wall‘.
Anthemic spirit, fragile melodies and gritty acoustic guitars don`t turn Year Of The Tiger into a sad goodbye, but into a celebration of survival and life in all its facets.
