BARRIO KATZ (FAT KAT DISKO / DRESDEN)
If Katz were a cook, he would be awarded a Michelin star for his cuisine – a fresh and original fusion of ingredients and inspiration from all around the world, and perfectly controlled skills – definitely not for purists!
But Katz is not a cook, he’s a DJ. And what he plays is kind of special. Bassy
club music meets folk samples from all over the globe. Hip hop vocals riding a reggae tune, rock’n’roll memories laid over drum’n’bass. Speed halving leading into regions of trap, and from there
a quick side-step into twerk-moves. Then the trip goes to bassy glitch and funk, touching moombahton. A little bit of swing, some electro, and from
time to time a hit tune sparkles and then dissolves away, before you even recognize it. Sounds really motley, and that’s exactly what it is: fresh fusion-cuisine inna musical way.
