“Haus ohne Türen”

Cats & Breakkies feat. Stephan Noë

“Singer/Songwriter Stephan Noë hebt sich durch ausgefallene Arrangements und seine lyrischen Texte von der Vielzahl aktueller deutschsprachiger Projekte angenehm ab. Der Berliner Musiker verbindet mit seiner Band NOË poetisch abstrakte Texte auf so unterschiedliche Weise, dass eine konkrete stilistische Einordnung schwer fällt. Durch die ausgefallenen Arrangements und seine lyrischen Texte kommt der Ausnahmekünstler mit seiner Musik dem Genre Pop sehr nah.”

“SPECTRAL” is out Now

We are thrilled to announce that our 2nd Album is out now. It has been a tough year of composing, arranging, tweaking sounds and finally recording and mixing the beast. What has emerged from that intense and inspiring work is a colorful, huge and pushing record that definitely wants to be heard now!

“…trotzdem hört sich ihr Sound bei geschlossenen Augen an wie eine Big Band aus dem Jahr 2140 - dynamisch, heissblütig und charaktervoll… Das erinnert doch an einen dunkelroten Pinot Noir aus dem Bündernland. Und etwas, dass man unbedingt hören sollte!“

About

Bandmembers2017.jpg

Cats & Breakkies are four young Berliners with jazz in their hearts and techno in their genes.

With a classical band line-up – electric guitar, bass, drums, keys – they rock an instrumental dj-live-set on stages, floors and festivals anytime. Always danceable, with courage to elegiac melodies, opulent breaks and rich pads, they convince above all by a precise build-up of tension and tonal dimension in their arrangements.

After their debut album Organic Electro (2015), co-produced with David August, had been released, they were nominated for the “Bremer Jazzpreis 2016” in the category “Jazz & Electronics”, followed by multiple performances at festivals and clubs, eg. at the Kantine am Berghain, the Tallinn Music Week and the Fusion Festival.

With “Spectral” (2018) they stepped up their game yet again. In three individual sets, they weave artful tonal and metric layers, drill thick disco-boards, deliver perfect build up and drop dramaturgy – and above all in a relaxed way put on immense pressure.

Cats & Breakkies, that is elegant, straightforward live-techno from Berlin.
