We can’t get Zebra Katz out of our heads, and thought we would spread the brain infection. Champagne Mixtape is as solid a 50 minutes as you’ll spend listening to music this week.
Minimalist and undeniable, Zebra Katz’ production makes such calibrated use of dynamics that it’s as well suited for headphones as the dance floor. Dark and funny in equal measures, his sharp, repetitious vocals ride playfully on top of trance-inducing bass lines. Throw “Ima Read” (with great performance by Njena Reddd Foxxx) on at a party this weekend and watch what happens.
