AM444 is a positive product of globalization, a duo resulting from the meeting of ChaCha — vocalist, MC, and well-known figure of the Shanghai underground — and Jay Soul, a Dutch producer who was propelled himself for some time in the Chinese megalopolis.
From the release of their first EP, Eye Wonder, and their debut LP, Rooms, AM444 has created a buzz. Both of the opuses deliver an exotic yet definitely urban sound, where one can feel the duo’s versatility and ability to absorb worldwide influences; some will recognize a bit of Little Dragon, others a vibe similar to Dorian Concept’s, or even the organic elements of Björk’s early works. But the real surprise is the warmth of ChaCha’s voice, which undulates smoothly through musical styles and transforms Mandarin Chinese into a language that sounds suddenly accessible, even familiar. This is clearly heard in the surprising “Détache toi,” a tune that inspired French pop star Matthieu Chedid and put AM444’s French debut under a good star.
With such swag and karma, AM444 is set to break borders!
Known for her alternative pop CALLmeKAT is the internationally acclaimed moniker of Scandinavian musician, composer and singer Katrine Ottosen. She grew up in a forest in the Danish countryside, where she would always find herself secretly drawn towards an old beat up piano. Now later in life her ongoing love for vintage and analog keyboards shines through in her music, infused with an earthy feel and a rare talent for symbiotic relationship between electric and organic elements.
In 2008 CALLmeKAT released the critically acclaimed ‘I’m In A Polaroid Where Are You?’ (EP) and ‘Fall Down’, through her own Pixiebooth label. This was followed up with the 2012-release of the haunting psych-pop loaded sophomore album ‘Where The River Turns Black’ recorded in the beautiful Catskill Mountains, in the state of New York and released throughout Continental Europe (Pixiebooth/Word&Sound/Playground). Where The River Turns Black featured drummer/multi-instrumentalist and producer Joe Magistro (Prophet Omega) and notable bass player Sara Lee (Gang Of Four, B 52’s), with guest appearances by pals from the road; Erika Spring (Au Revoir Simone) and Helgi Jonsson (Sigur Ros).
2008年，CALLmeKAT通过自己的厂牌Pixiebooth推出了广受好评的EP 《I’m In A Polaroid WhereAre You?》 和专辑《Fall Down》。而2012年的最新专辑《Where The River Turns Black》则更是帮助她在事业上更进了一步。这张至今还在我们脑中萦绕不休的Psych-Pop专辑的录制地点在风景如画的美国卡茨基山区录制，并由大发行商ContinentalEurope进行了全球发行。无论是商业还是艺术上，这都是一张成功的专辑，为了这张专辑Kat邀请到了一系列知名音乐人前来助阵 - 鼓手是来自Prophet Omega的Joe Magistro，贝斯手是Gang of Four 和B–52乐队的Sara Lee, 同时还有在路上巧遇的Erika Spring（AuRevoir Simone）和Helgi Jonsson（Sigur Ros）也在专辑中献了声。
