MIKIX THE CAT — MOVIN AROUND
“This is the year of the cat!” said Mikix in January 2009. After huge releases for T&B, huge amounts of press (including being voted “One To Watch in 09” at Limewire.com), and the debut of his Afro-house alias Momma’s Boy for Sound Pellegrino, we have to agree. Just in time for WMC 2009, Mikix released this second EP for the label, featuring four endlessly playable originals that blur the lines between house, techno, heavy bass, and electro. He told us he’s been spending hours on his kick drums and it shows with these bangers! The EP includes the sawing synth madness of “Movin’ Around,” the sneaky playground sucker punch of “Trouble Maker,” the Euro dance-influenced piano madness of “Check Dis Out,” and the regal Afro-influenced boom-tchak of the clap-happy “Zulu King.” Big tunes!
Released on March 24, 2009
