catcall$ 4 by BLOODCAT: Album Review
Astounding artist BLOODCAT has a melodic force unmatched in their album “catcall$ 4 (director’s cut).” The essence of hip-hop, trap beats, and electronica drive the vibe of twelve daring tracks in this fresh album. If you get your kicks from modern rap music and edge poetry that’ll boost your momentum, then you’ve come to the right place.
BLOODCAT opens up the album with “charcuterie”, the charming aspect of it arrives from the drone-bass arrangement. Aside from that the charisma and flow of the rapper are right in your face, and the allure simply cannot be ignored. The potential of this artist is inevitable, and the next tracks contributed more and more to that notion. The second track entitled “picture purrfect” is a moody one filled with subtle piano pieces and a few symphonies. What intrigued me the most was the singing portion coming alive near the end. It followed a soothing aura of RnB and soul, and all in all, mixed elegantly with the hip-hop structure. I was hoping to hear BLOODCAT’s prime moment, to my pleasant surprise “vip” got the party started and we were on a roll. This time around, everything’s amplified to the ten. Bass is heavier, beats are fatter, synths are fire, and at the center stage, the artist’s beastly ode arrives.
Ever wondered what minimal rap music would sound like? The answer is the track “7up.” Filling the air with simple yet meaningful synth portions and a beat structure that bodes well, this number was truly an experimental one.
