Following the awesome 4×4 garage of our CRST Hyp mix late last year, we’re pleased to be able to update on one of the quartet’s progress, as the Ratcatcher presents a fairly astounding mixtape entitled ‘Rhytmic Impulses’.
Having blown us away last year as part of the CRST production crew, you’ll more likely know Ratcatcher as Rodski of Chesus and Rodski fame, one half of the Wales-based unit. With his Ratcatcher moniker, we catch the boy out on his own, weaving intricate percussive house in and around lost classics from names like Tortoise and Boards of Canada.
Having released on PTN last year alongside fellow Welshman Doc Daneeka, you can check out some new bits from the man’s studio in this mix (a gargantuan re-edit of Steve Reich’s ‘Drumming’ catching the ear immediately), and be sure to keep an eye for more in 2011.
