The 39Steps Album Out Now
The 39Steps, a project from musician/producer/DJ Kato is available now exclusively on CD from the Bad Sneakers Records online store – please click here. The 39Steps is a project from producer, musician and DJ Kato. With an album written and recorded over two years, he has created a place where hip hop, electronica, jazz beats, and film-scores collide. Made from bottom-heavy beats and guest singer Laura Fowles' spine-tingling vocals, the album features scratchy horns, haunting pianos, red reverbs and talk of ghosts. The album will be in shops and for download from 11th May.
The Gossip EP is the latest release by The Sugars and lands in good online stores everywhere in March. Taken from recent debut LP “The Curse Of The Sugars”, the title track is an infectious floor stomper driven by pounding drums and insistent guitar riffs. Gossip exposes The Sugars at their best; energetic, raucous, soulful and catchy in three hard-hitting minutes.
This blistering EP also includes 3 remixes of their indie-disco monster 'Way To My Heart'. From ice-cool, East London DJ and remix outfit, Disco Bloodbath, fellow Bad Sneakers label mate and DJ/producer/musician Kato who under his 39Steps guise has his debut album released shortly and Brighton's manic electro-mashup duo PowerUp!? there's plenty for all tastes as The Sugars successfully combine their rich musical heritage with a digitally enhanced future.
The full track listing is Gossip / Way To My Heart (Disco Bloodbath Remix) / Wayyyy To My Heart (PowerUp?! Remix) / Way To My Heart (Kato Remix).
