Cats & Breakkies
During the two years of the pandemic, we have almost forgotten what it’s like: letting yourself drift away with the music, surrendering yourself entirely to the rhythm as you dance. Cats & Breakkies play in a classic rock band formation – electric guitar, bass, drums, keyboards – but their sound occupies the space between techno and jazz. Organic Electro was the name of their debut album in 2016 and was already an indication of what the four musicians from Berlin were to achieve on numerous festival stages over the next few years: elegiacal melodies, full bass notes and opulent breaks, played in a laid-back jazz frame of mind. Cats & Breakkies bring with them all the qualities of an intoxicating DJ set – but everything is played live here. Hand-made techno with plenty of scope to flip out.
