This month features the glorious dance music supremo, Freakpower in his electro swing incarnation, Kitten and the Hip featuring brass and singers!
KITTEN AND THE HIP
Take a beautiful and fantastic singer, add a world class horn section and some
pumping backing tracks. Throw in some electro swing, some R & B, a bit of camp
disco, a dollop of drum and bass a smidge of dubstep, add some brilliant hooky pop
songs and there you have Kitten and The Hip.
In Jan 2011, Ashley Slater met Kitten Quinn. Ashley was an ex pop star (Freak
Power) and Kitten was a beautiful and intelligent singer songwriter. They wrote
songs together, they hung out, and they mischiefed.
But mostly, they wrote songs together.
In February 2011, they were having a chat, and Kitten advised Ashley not to worry
about something. â€˜Donâ€™t You Worryâ€™ was born the next day. A demo was sent to Carl
Hanaghan, head of A & R at Hed Kandi records in London. Less than half an hour
later, the phone rang at Kitten HQ, the deal was made, the record was signed and
the ball of yarn started rolling.
The single was released in September and has already created a significant noise
on the Electro Swing scene. Another of Kitten's tracks â€˜By My Sideâ€™ was signed to
â€˜Bart and Baker present Electro Swing 4â€™, released November 7th 2011 on Wagram
They are now signed to Freshly Squeezed with a single and and album coming out
in late 2012, and festival appearances confirmed at Beat-Herder, Secret Garden
Party and Boomtown, the next 12 months is shaping up to be very special!
Live, they are a quintet, with a drummer and guitarist and Kitten singing and Ashley
playing brass and on vocals too. Kitten is a natural onstage, at once mesmerising
Itâ€™s a party with class, so donâ€™t forget your ass!
Plus your DJ Roc Vicar to take you through to midnight.
All for only Â£10. (Â£15 for day ticket includes dance classes)
