Kubatko – Tomtor (new 2018 album)

It’s been a long time coming but finally it’s here. My new album Tomtor – the most dancey album I have made to this date. On Tomtor I am trying to move your body as much as I can. There are a few exceptions but mostly that is what I was going for.

Simple ideas with my typical sound that kind of evolved as well (at least it feels like that to me). I believe my sound is now punchier as well as cleaner. There are three main genres featured on this album drum & bass, house, breaks.

You can buy it here https://kubatko.bandcamp.com/album/tomtor as well as on any other online store after 21st of March 2018. If you are into Czech online shops you can find it on Supraphonline too.

Let me tell you something about each one of the songs:

  1. Replace – a bit future house & rave inspired song. This is probably the “hardest” tune you can find on the album.

  2. Bracelets – a fun dru & bass song that carries a bit of a jump up vibe.
  3. B Close 2 U – a deep/house song with a fun bass melody switch after the breakdown.

  4. Erection Protection – a title that came up to my head when I was looking at my bicycle saddle with a hole. Breaks.
  5. Dál – first song  ever where I am seriously singing. A bit of an experiment that turned out quite good. House.
  6.  Subak feat. Jo Joonghyun – a song that I made with my Korean friend Jo. We recorded the guitar in an Anthracite Roasters coffee in Seoul. Good times. Breaks.

  7. How Do I feat. UZA – the last song that I finished for the album. Wasn’t sure if it would make it as I wasn’t able to find suitable vocalist until I sent it to UZA. She did amazing job again on this one. Liquid funk drum & bass.
  8. Let Go – a deeper drum & bass tune that had an interesting story. As I was asked by Med School to try to make a song for their compilation. I did my best but it didn’t suit the sound they were looking for. Happy to have it on my album then.
  9. Can’t Switch – a future house tune with another fun switch after the breakdown. I love the tape stop effect I was able to fit into the other half.

  10. More Than Friends Less Than Lovers – an amazing name that my friend Roman came up with. I actually had a 4×4 version of this tune but then a more typical drum & bass beat suited the vibe better. I made this song entirely on my headphones in Seoul cafés. Drum & bass.
  11. Signals feat. Jo Joonghyun – probably the most atmospheric chilled down tunes on the album. Featuring my guitarist friend Jo. Deep house.
  12. I’m Nothing feat. UZA – probably the most fun collaboration I have done so far. It took us four sessions with UZA in different Seoul cafés where we collaborated over simple earphones. Kind of a breaks/dubstep vibes with sweet UZA’s vocals.

Kubatko – Dál (from upcoming 2018 album)

It’s been a long time since I put something out (besides Hospital Records). I am happy to present you a song from my upcoming album that I would like to release in early 2018.

It is now being played on Radio 1 (you can vote for it here).

The song is sang by me (also wrote the lyrics).

Lyrics:

uz nechci cekat
ja uz chci dal
asi je to rychle
posunem se dal

kry proborim
ledy prolomim
tecu jako reka
more to jsem ja

milovat to slovo
neznamena stat
milovat rec tela
to znamena dat

hvezd se zachytim
nebe proletim
drz se pevne
tak to mam rad

Playing Tricks feat. Jo Joonhyun on Hospital Records

Another success for my music is a second track coming out on Hospital Records. Playing Tricks featuring Jo Joonghyun on guitar will be coming out on a “Sick Music 4” compilation.

Another great thing is that they chose my song as the starter for their mini and cd mix. So if you have a look at this mini-mix by S.P.Y. you can hear my tune right away.
