Katrah-Quey – k a t r a h w a v e: プラスチックコートハンガーアンテナ

“Katrah-Quey gets very experimental in k a t r a h w a v e: プラスチックコートハンガーアンテナ by sampling music & sounds from different sources, while at the same time not sampling in a few of the tracks creating a snythwave or chillwave style as a template to create a very laid-back but strange hazy vibe in this release. forgotten, fragmented, nostalgic but unclear memories will pop up inside of your head while you listen to this stylistically experimental record that deviates slightly away from katrah-quey’s hip-hop sound to a more electronic retro-wave territory that borrows aesthetic from the experimental sampled based art & music genre ‘vaporwave’.

Rhythmically this album uses percussion inspired from experimental electronic hip-hop beats (think shafiq husayn, comfort fit, flying lotus, dabrye) and synthpop/chillwave 80s to 1990s drums to create a upbeat but very hypnotic feeling, while some tracks a bit more ambient, and are soundscapes with very short interludes that sound like they are taken from old commercials & tv shows. Melodies and harmonies seem to trigger memories of using early computer internet websites, menus, call waiting music, the weather channel, anime and half asleep watching late night infomercials.

In japanese プラスチックコートハンガーアンテナ translates roughly as “the plastic coat hanger antennae” in which Quey describes its meaning as a “imaginary transmission of broken and melodic memories that are stored somewhere in the back of your head but are activated when you listen to the album, sort of like remembering old songs that you don’t know the titles of but still lingering in your subconscious”. This is definitely an impressive release by a producer who likes to try different approaches with every release he shares with his listeners.”

Katrah-Quey – Beat Tape Shenmue Remix Instrumentals

For fans of Beat Tape Shenmue, I decided to release an alternate version of this lp with all the instrumentals used for remixes (an a emcee featured track), and share 5 unreleased instrumentals that weren’t selected for the final cut. I did share a few of them on a Beat Tape Shenmue Rejects mix but now you can download them & listen to them forever, lol. Hopefully this instrumentals will inspire your next freestyle cipher, while you’re doing homework, washing the dishes, playing other video games, surfing the web or to have in the background while you’re building converstation on your radio/podcast show.
