KING CAT (LP + MP3)
12" Vinyl lp UK
The new album from French dub cat Mahom as vinyl LP with download code included.
Mahom has never stopped moving forward since 2005! With hundreds of thousands of views and plays, hundreds of concerts in all Europe and a dozen vinyls, Antoine and Joris have carved a place in gold in the landscape of the French Dub that confirms today the release of King Cat, fifth album made with the precious help of Panda Dub. A modern and electro record that flirts without stop with the traditional codes of the genre.
Sublimated by the artwork of Irie Design, the twelve tracks of this new album sign the strong return of the duet. Simple, generous, demanding and federative, his talk grew and took height, like the Maneki-neko, the cat so dear to the duo from the album The Skankin'Cat. On top of skyscrapers, in the heart of an urban and contemporary universe, King Cat speaks of the pessimistic destiny of a society in full philosophical upheaval, but also of hope, of life, of love. It makes us lean sometimes towards the dark side of the dub stepper, then towards the gliding and the atmospheric, a subtle alchemy and a real maturity sublimated by the artistic direction of Panda Dub. From guests, the sublime voice of Luiza, met during the tour, delivers us a magnificent cover of Françoise Hardy (Le Temps de love) and a rebound stepper (Snowball). We also discover the famous MC Green Cross (on the terrible Digital Badness), which we already have
listened alongside Ondubground, Atili or Biga Ranx.
Ambitious and militant manifesto, a major pillar in the Mahom building, King Cat celebrates all the faces of the Dub. Three little letters that deliver a universal message of love, freedom, generosity. Virtues to cultivate hard in the heart of a difficult daily and full of challenges, sick of his solitudes but above all rich in his differences. [info from label]
