Hopestreet Recordings and Crown Ruler present:
KB's Mixtape No. 2 Album Launch
with Natalie Slade & YK Ace
Following on from the cult success of 2018's ‘KB’s Mixtape No. 1’ - songs that were sampled into your favourite hits, Karate Boogaloo's ‘Mixtape No. 2’ expands this theme with songs from the 80s that were sampled into your favourite hits!, released on Brunswick's finest Hopestreet Recordings.Making up the rhythm section of long-time Melbourne soul favourites The Cactus Channel, KB consistently sit in their own lane – their combination of raw musicianship and sheer time on the clock in the studio and on stage gives them a glowing connection rarely seen. Making records, they follow their own rules; recording and mixing on tape with no plugins and no edits, releasing exclusively in mono. It’s not about anachronism, it’s about the KB manifesto: a chosen set of limitations forcing a specific outcome, an outcome best appreciated through their “KB’s Mixtape” series of LPs.
Joining Karate Boogaloo will be smoky-voiced Sydney-based singer Natalie Slade and Brisbane-come-Melbourne drummer/beat-maker YK Ace (Vulture Street Tape Gang).
