Killed Kassette teams up with Karl Frampton on ‘Reopen’ EP
Killed Kassette, 2 Sides of Soul and Karl Frampton all link up to superb effect on the brand new Griffintown Records release, ‘Reopen’.
Born out of the seminal UK rave scene of the ‘90s, Killed Kassette is an artist with an impressive story to tell. A pioneer of house music with a remarkable resume, composed of associations with some of the biggest artists and labels in the evolution of the genre (inc. remixes for Carl Craig, Kevin Saunderson, Chez Damier, Roland Clark and Paul Oakenfold’s illustrious Perfecto Records imprint). Once a member of a largely successful production duo, he made the break as a solo artist in 2013 and hasn’t looked back.
Karl Frampton aka Off The Cuff is a DJ, producer, With innovative productions and skills and a joyful attitude for rocking a crowd. Light years ahead of your normal DJ/Producer his influence has infiltrated throughout the spectrum of dance music with his main roots from being a B-boy in days when he was Breakdancing/DJ-ing up and down the U.K with crews such as Sharp Style & Pro Star Breakers. Spinning not only on his head and other body parts’ but vinyl like Africa Bambaataa, Herbie Hancock and Man Parish to name just a few of his early musical influences.
Shake A Leg goes first from Killed Kassette & 2 Sides of Soul and is a deep, soulful house track but still one with plenty of bite. The vocal is what sets it off while the low down bass brings weight and the chords add the colour.
Killed Kassette and Karl Frampton then follow and cook up a perfectly chunky house groove on Ex On The Dance floor. It is built on raw grooves and with popping synths, well swung drums and plenty of sweeping filters to add drama. Add in a fiery vocal and the whole thing is finished in style.
