Matt Shadetek "Funny Cats"
Next week, Brooklyn dancehall/grime/funky maestro and Dutty Artz co-founder Matt Shadetek is unveiling Flowers, an instrumental album that showcases his wizard-like mastery and unabashed affection for futuristic bass sounds. We've already premiered one track ("iHop"), but now another tune has slipped into the internet ether. The word uptempo doesn't do "Funny Cats" justice, as the track is brimming with energy, not to mention synth and bass melodies that sound like '80s synth-pop on a sugar high. The song teeters on the edge of silliness, but gets through its three and a half minutes without barreling over the cliff. Propelled by shuffling kicks and bustling low end, "Funny Cats" is one potent song. (via FADER)
