LP version. The time has come for Catnapp's debut full-length record on Monkeytown Records, BreakBreak follows 2018's EP Fear and No Cover single and sees Catnapp capturing the jaw-dropping energy of her live shows as well as further refining her characteristic blend of rap and heavyweight electronic beats. She challenged herself with exploring more complex emotions and subjects for this album, which is more than a collection of love songs. Catnapp is the guise of Argentinian artist Amparo Battaglia. Long before signing to Monkeytown in 2018, the Berlin-based producer, singer/rapper, and striking performer already (self-)released a couple of records full of boundless creativity and originality, taking whatever she needed from every electronic genre as well as pop and rap music. Amparo cites classic influences like The ProdigyAphex TwinOutKast, or Beyoncé, while her productions also draw from current post-internet and post-rap sounds. Break combines these diverse influences in a very distinct sound. "Down In The Basement" is an ode to the underground, dealing with how to grow as an artist whilst staying true to your roots. Catnapp tackles the beautiful contradictions of going her own way. Next up is "The Mover" featuring Modeselektor, a slow burning, bass-heavy song about standing up for yourself and showing strength. "Fight For A Fight" is inspired by the repression the LGBTQ community is facing all around the world. It came about when Amparo was invited to perform at the Pride March in Buenos Aires in 2018, its lyrics are aimed at supporting the ongoing fight against patriarchy. Still, love and heartbreak are essential elements of Catnapp's songwriting and thus appear in songs like "Thunder", "Lengua", and "Give It Back". The latter is about leaving a toxic relationship behind and regaining control about one's life. Musically, these tracks show Catnapp alternating fierce raps and booming beats with liquid R&B vocals and melancholic, dreamlike electronica. Catnapp has been compared to electroclash artists like Peaches, her blend of modern rap and electronics may also evoke likeminded artist Tommy Genesis. There's leaders and there's followers -- you already know which this girl belongs to. Break is no less than her most accomplished musical statement to date. Also features El Plvybxy and Doxxed.
