LABEL // ct-hi (it)
CAT // cthi001lp


New Italian record label formed by an eclectic mix of producers, DJs singers and musicians all with one shared goal. To investigate the contemporary sound of electronic music from a hip hop background. This is where we come in. Diggin' in the creates of soul & jazz paradise, deeply-rooted music revisited with a Detroit spin to make something new and authentic. This is where we wanna go. No boundaries.

A1 - PARKER MADICINE 'LIFE ON MARS' - A cosmic journey through Detroit and boogie, bursting with harmonic development, arpeggios and subtle variations in rhythm that make this track perfect for fans of the genre. 'Life on Mars' is the perfect manifesto for the Detroit Boogie sound of CT-HI and its founder Parker Madicine.

A2 - PARKER MADICINE 'GUESS YOU DIDN'T KNOW' - This neat production by Parker Madicine is made up of a splendidly arranged funk/soul vocal sample and solid, syncopated hip hop beat with warm, deep bass.

B1 - TURBOJAZZ FT. KAE & ERIK RICO 'GIMME WHAT YOU GOT' - Refined production from Turbojazz, a young producer from the CT-HI team who along with Kae on the mic and American multi-instrumentalist Erik Rico (known for his collabs with artists such Q-Tip, SA-RA, dj Spinna etc) on bass, packs up a rich production of a dreamy progressive nu-soul track.

B2 - JAZZ MADICINE 'ASTROCARO' - New project born of the CT-HI's crib: Turbojazz & Parker Madicine team up with Veezo, the label's talented jazz pianist, to compose a track that blends future funk atmosphere, underground acid bass and Detroit cosmic pads.

B3 - AEED 'BUGSLADY' - Swiss producer Aid Copelj, aka Aeed, mixes electronica and hip hop beatz perfectly, alternating coarse vibes with dreamlike, ethereal scenarios. It's the sound of space.
