Premiere: B2 – Andy Catana – Everybody Dance [SKIPAUDIO005]

Barcelona-based record label Skip Audio releases its fifth release with a new VA compilation featuring Cosmjn, Sublee, Andy Catana, and duo DubTape.

Skip Audio started their journey quite recently and quickly became a one to watch label. They kicked off their imprint with already three VA compilation finally curated and a solo EP by the founders and owners of the label Luciano and Mateo, known as the musical duo DubTape. As for now and to name a few, Giuliano Lomonte, Viceversa, Vlad Arapasu, Direkt, or Dorothy’s Dream left their imprint on this young vinyl-only label.

The fifth release welcomes three new artists to leave their stamp on the label: Cosmjn, Sublee and Andy Catana. They each bring their own sound which results in a powerful four tracker EP in between breaks and minimal.

We think that this VA is really good with 4 tracks that are very different one from each other but at the same time are complementary between them,” say heads behind Skip Audio. “We had the chance to work with great artists that we really respect a lot and to release music as DubTape on the same VA with them was a great honour. The result is a VA which we are really proud of.

Austria based artist Andy Catana takes on the duty to close the EP with ‘Everybody Dance’. As the producer is setting up the scene, starting off with raw breakbeats and strong vocals, he welcomes a powerful electronic loop on board. The whole piece goes in between clean refined breakbeats and intense spacey sounds.

To produce this track I think I used a little bit of everything, I like to work a lot with sampling and chopping samples, but also a bit of modular is in it – like the 303 sound,” says Andy. “I worked hybrid. Some sounds and the vocals are running out of Ableton but send to different analog fx like the Ensoniq Dp2 or the Sherman filter bank. For me hybrid is the way to go.
