Cartoon Beats debut EP
Cartoon Beats, a new independent electronic music label being run out of Dunedin, New Zealand, is pleased to announce the release of the label's debut EP, Ladies Style / The Jacket.

The EP features 2 original break beat tracks from Dunedin producers SoNic Smith and Haszari. They've also swapped parts and remixed each other's tracks; Timaru producer Stray Theories has also contributed remixes.

Ladies Style is a true breaks anthem, with thick slabs of bassline competing with cut up & glitched horn stabs and a big vocal sample. Haszari's remix switches it up into a fidget house banger, with extended filtered breaks for those peak time sets. Stray Theories' remix builds on the original and adds synthetic textures to produce a lush & expansive rework.

The Jacket is a deep dark comic break beat chugger, with plenty of air, contributing a lovely warmth that your subwoofer will relish. The Full Metal remix from SoNic takes us back to the early 80s; with brown-sound guitar riffery coupled with 8-bit synth action. Stray Theories once more delivers the goods, reconstructing the original into a space-breaks future classic of epic scope.
