Ill Till w/ Xberg D6 Cru and Electronicat at Urban Spree Berlin / Friday, 08.04.2016
As a release party for their brand new single on troglodyt records Kreuzberh Dhirty 6 Crus Ill Till will go head to head with Electronicat for some serious Friday nights entertainment.
Patric Catani got involved with electronic music after discovering the computer game music of the Commodore64 games, Bomb the Bass (Beat Dis), Public Enemy and other Electronic, Dance + Rap music of the mid- late 80s. After a passionate time of ripping his favourite music out of games, he moved on with using the old homecomputers for programming and sequencing his own sounds.
Coming to Berlin the first time in 1993 he immediately fell in love with the city but it took a while and a few further stations until he finally moved there in 1995. Around this time the Digital Hardcore crew slowly started to come together. Right after his move he found with Gina V. D´Orio (Cobra Killer) the band EC8OR and lived the 90s Haze in full effect.
Catani’s music is nothing if not divers, even including two hip-hop projects Puppetmastaz and the Xberg Dhirty6 Cru. The Puppetmastaz started to do their first shows, collaborations with other musicians like Chilly “Entertainist” Gonzales, Max Turner, Angie Reed and many more. Candie Hank was introduced to the World, Patrics new side project that let him shake off the shadows of the often so narrow minded Hardcore Scene.
Electronicat is the pseudonym of French musician Fred Bigot. Started in 1998, Fred picked up his guitar, sampling it and focusing on the melodic attributes of beat, developed the particular sound he is now renowned for. The distorted but melodic guitar, the unquantised rhythms, the delay-heavy vocals and the buzzing rumbling 808 bass drum have all became characteristic features of the Electronicat sound. His songs encompass an array of influences in all respects – particularly glam rock, psychedelia, 60s garage rockabilly and experimental electronic music – and takes it further making electronic music sound more rock n roll.
