Finally, after 12 years of planning and brewing, the new album from Mister and Curt Cataract has been given life. What began as a series of friendly music related exchanges on MySpace, has now evolved into a fantastic full-length project, stretching across the breadth of the Atlantic. I already shared one of the tracks from the album last month, the excellent title track featuring Hemlock Ernst and I am pleased to confirm that the rest of the album follows in the same vein. As well as the stellar appearance from Ernst, there are also equally strong features from the likes of Chris Orrick, MysDiggi and Oliver Sudden. Cataract’s beats are sublime throughout and in Mister he appears to have found the ideal voice for his production. The album is available to stream in full below and there are plenty of physicals to cop over on Bandcamp, including a vinyl edition.
Here comes a video that I’ve been criminally sleeping on, but one that I want to avoid you making the same mistake with, as the full project release date draws nearer.
UK producer, Curt Cataract, teams up with Detroit MC and Passalacqua affiliate, Mister, for Approaching Land. The video above is for the titular track, which also features Hemlock Ernst aka Samuel T Herring (Future Islands) and makes for a fine example of what to expect from the full project, which is due for release on 1 March on Cold Rhymes Records.
The start of April saw the release of one of the more intriguing projects of recent times. Curious Alice is an interpretation of the Lewis Carroll classic, told through the beats of some of the UK’s most innovative independent producers.
