There was an essential release that we missed during the summer at o sótão. Austin hip hop beatmaker The Deli made serious waves with his previous album Vibes 3 and in July dropped its follow up Jazz Cat, which he delivers with gusto. Filled with the smoked-out, laid-back cut-and-paste jazzy rhythms, his trademark, Jazz Cat contains 15 instrumental tracks.
The title cut shows where he’s at, transmitting a vintage feel through scratchy snares, looping piano chords, and faraway — both in time and place — city sounds. Released by Cold Busted, the album is available digitally, in cassette tapes and CD’, while the vinyl editions are about to run out. Dig in… wIth Jazz Cat, The Deli trips the night fantastic.
