Malcolm Catto: Scorpio Rising (Mo Wax, 2001, Popcorn Bubble Fish)
Funk instrumental EP.
Catto’s early solo releases brought together his skills as a drummer with his budding talents as a producer. This EP, in particular, is a head-smasher, all thinly-contained fury and chaos…about as far away from the typical ‘trip hop’ sound as one might imagine. (By the way, if you dig this, be sure to track down the 2008 EP by MRR-ADM that he also plays on).
365 Days of Soul, #32
Great posts lately, nice work!
Love this Catto album. You heard his promo LP called Bubblefish breaks? Same album but just the drums, amazing stuff.
