Based in St. Petersburg, Slutty Prty is a new label and community that resists genres and hones in the curation and sound of new artists. The platform is keen to push undiscovered producers out into the periphery and give them support to help them grow as individuals. Appearing for the third time on the Russian imprint – and practically establishing themselves as family members –, MEOWHAT is back with some cool and danceable weirdness infused with lots of different sonorities and influences.
However, before we start talking about the “Genji” EP, let’s get a little bit familiar with the men of the hour, shall we? The name of the duo comes from the amalgamation of Meowsn and Whatever, two experienced musicians who managed to establish themselves as a diligent act at the best venues in their hometown.
Their chemistry between the lads when producing has been delivering an insightful and hard-to-pigeonhole outcome, and the track premiered here, “Koi no DISCO”, is no different. The (Nu) Acid Jazz (combined with Avant-Garde, Modal Jazz, and Dark Jazz, perhaps?) atmosphere, provided by the slapping bassline, the distorted guitar riffs and the sex saxophone layer, is definitely something worth listening to and dancing to.
You can find (and buy) this and other music pearls on the Bandcamp page of the label.
