I KATAP presentano il nuovo EP KATAP

Finalmente ci siamo. L’attesa è finita.
Presentiamo il nostro nuovo EP KATAP, che uscirà il 5 Giugno 2015 (dopo 4 anni dall’ultimo lavoro, “Bullet”) e che si chiamerà semplicemente “KATAP”, a rimarcare un ritorno alle sonorità degli inizi.

E visto che ci piacciono le feste, abbiamo deciso di celebrare con voi per due giorni di fila.
Il primo potrete avere un’infarinatura del lavoro ascoltandolo nella splendida fonoteca mentre gustate il vostro drink, nell’altra lo suoneremo live al Lido Pola, nel cuore dell’Area Flegrea, in un set che mischia i pezzi del nuovo disco a brani storici che abbiamo suonato in passato (e che conoscete ed apprezzate in molti).

Gli appuntamenti da segnare in agenda sono:

VENERDI’ 5 GIUGNO / Aperi-listening @ fonoteca (Via Morghen, 31 – Napoli) 
SABATO 6 GIUGNO / Live Set @ lido pola (Via Nisida, 24 – Napoli)

Nei prossimi giorni, pubblicheremo nuovi aggiornamenti QUI (metti “partecipa” all’evento in modo da non perderti nulla)
Se hai qualcosa da chiederci, scrivila pure nei commenti!

New KATAP Website Online!

Dopo mesi di lavoro e di ricerca ed integrazione di nuovi suoni, oltre a cogliere l’occasione del lancio del nostro nuovo EP dal titolo “KATAP“, con l’ascolto in anteprima della traccia “Brrr” disponibile nella sezione “Propaganda”, vi presentiamo la nuova veste grafica del nostro sito.

Questa parte del sito, “Bulletin”, è dedicata al racconto delle nostre esperienze dentro e fuori da un palco, alle comunicazioni di ogni tipo ed alla condivisione di tutto quello che rappresenta il nostro modo di essere in un determinato momento, di tutto quello di cui vogliamo rendervi parte.

Fatevi un giro sul sito per scoprire il resto (provatelo da smartphone, lo consigliamo). Sentitevi liberi di interagire con noi, commentando o condividendo la vostra, saremo lieti di rispondere.

Ci vediamo ai nostri prossimi live.

Tifiamo KATAP.

KATAP is electronic live music

Cut-up, literally means “shred”, “cut in pieces” but the cut-up is above all an artistic and literary style, which took its first steps in the early decades of the twentieth century with the Dadaism movement, then regain strength and expanded among 50s and 60s, during the beat years, especially thanks to the work of William S. Burroughs, eclectic and unconventional American writer that has become a true literature icon.

THE EARLY DAYS

The project is the brainchild of Fabio Di Miero, deus ex machina of Katap.

After various experiments, in 2005 he arrives at Katap first released EP thanks to the label Bustin’Loose (Planet Funk), that produced a 12” vinyl, “My Trip” containing the original version of the track plus two remixes. The album gets a great international feedback.

Initially, the basic sound of Katap was a heavy mixture of punk-rock and electronic sounds.
But the continuous experiment and listenings leave immediately understand what would be the next step.

THE FIRST OFFICIAL ALBUMS

In 2007, the publication of “Antiform” produced by Katap and Nut Label (independent Neapolitan label). The hit of the album, “Notorious Heart” was selected in 2008 by the MEI (“Meeting delle Etichette Indipendenti”, Meeting of Independent Labels) as one of the most representative pieces of the Italian independent scene.
The Antiform tour sees them on stage – among others – of the Kaleidoscope Festival, alongside artists like of Apparat and Schneider TM. In 2009 Katap made an opening to Caparezza.

In November 2011, the third work of Katap, “Bullet”, was released (NutLabel / Audioglobe). A really direct record, without any frill.
Compared to Antiform, the disc follows a more elektro-punk style: electric guitars, dirty and unleashed, create some contours we’re used to hear during of live shows. But the electronics, with its synths, remains a vigilant sentinel within the band, creating a sound in which the explosive dancefloor clashes with the fucking rock’n’roll.

Last album saw the contribution of Massimo Cordovani (former Narcolexia) on guitars and moods and of Vinci Acunto for soundtracks; artistic production was managed by Rosario Acunto (Nut Studio).

THE PRESENT DAYS

After a 4-years break from the record scenes, Katap returned with an EP simply entitled KATAP, made of five tracks, a comeback to the pure electro sound after the experience of “Bullet”, which turned towards an electro-rock’n’roll instead. In these years of silence Katap made many live and Festival, who have enriched the band and the project, both as musicians and individuals.

Today a new guitarist joined the band, Roberto Niro, to replace Massimiliano Russo (thank you again Max for your “style”!). The electronics diving into a vortex of sounds has reconnected the project to its origin, “Antiform”, in a continuous stream of bits and beats and megaphone voices. Even live shows will follow this dancefloor path.

TheKATAP EP is own produced by Katap, for the Nut Label; mixed and mastered at Nut Studio, from Rosario Acunto (Emiro), also the artistic producer of “Bullet”.

Ten years after the release of the vinyl 12 “My trip in 2005, we are preparing a new version of the track, to give to all, ergo Achtung !!! This is a fucking work in progress, we’re there and you?

The KATAP project on stage is:
Fabio di Miero (vocals, computer, synth)
Roberto Niro (electric guitars)
