Review // Zombie Cats - Must Eat EP (Eatbrain)


The enigmatic duo known whimsically as 'Zombie Cats', who first made their appearance on Eatbrain's 'Tales of the Undead' LP; have resurfaced with their deadly 'Must Eat' EP. Consisting of 5 (digital) tracks of very precisely crafted and crisp Neurofunk that's clearly been created (along with their moniker) with Eatbrain in mind. This is music for the dancefloor, with no messing about - weighty percussion and powerful leads and bass rule the undead catroost here. 

Not only is the project itself a unique collaboration between 2 long-running producers, whose identity remains at this moment concealed - but the EP itself sees some pretty interesting collaborations with Atlanta-based DnB Producer Logam, Neuro-focussed MC Kryptomedic and one of the scene's most impressive producers, Mefjus - who certainly doesn't disappoint with his appearance here on the titular track 'Must Eat' - a creepy and anxiously shuffling dancefloor-shifter. The other standout track for us on the EP is the filter frenzy that is 'Nazareth' - which was briefly offered as a free download.

Eatbrain continues to go from strength to strength, and it's a credit to their design that they are able to pull such new projects out of the aether and bring them so quickly to life and recognition. For anyone who's been to one of their incredible label nights, either at their homebase on Budapest's sick A38 club (a boat), or in another city (and they seem to be spreading quickly) - you'll be familiar with their commitment to bringing to life some totally sick parties and reinvigorating the Drum and Bass scene for the masses.

Official Press Release //

EATBRAIN presents the debut EP from the enigmatic production duo known as Zombie Cats - "Must Eat" EP! Having crawled from the vortex earlier this year - bursting onto the neurofunk scene with two massive tracks on Eatbrain's Tales of the Dead LP - the ultra-talented duo isn't wasting any time unleashing their next dancefloor invasion. Their latest offering sees Zombie Cats raise the pressure with four tracks, featuring top-rate collaborations and produced with the consistency and quality of seasoned veterans. Zombie Cats collude with Mefjus on the titular 'Must Eat', an eerie dancefloor concoction replete with sinister whispers, heavy rhythms and futuristic sound design. Classic Eatbrain vibes. Atlanta, USA-based Logam features on the weighty 'Vintage', while MC Kryptomedic leaves his mark on the ruthlessly technical 'Upgrade'. Zombie Cats rounds the EP out with the diverse neuro stepper 'Moments of Truth'. True versatility from this fast-rising duo, who are proving to be a powerful force in drum & bass. Individually, the Zombie Cats each bring the heat; if you look around, they have been for years. But together, the producers form something greater (and scarier) than the sum of its parts. Take a look, if you dare. Eatbrain presents: Zombie Cats.
