For certain upper-tier Millienials, Aaliyah holds a sacred place in our hearts. Baby gurl was killed in a plane crash just as she was reaching her height of popularity, and with 9/11 just a couple of weeks later, our mourning period was cut short, and her memory was all but snuffed out—save for our crusty old hearts and a capellas here and there from producers in the know.
But Beat Kitty is bringing her back. Aaliyah's seminal hit, “Are You That Somebody” gets a booty bass makeover from Amanda Bo that would make Timbaland happy. The east coast producer and DJ has been steadily building up her game, and today we're happy to spread the word far and wide about her party-starting global bass sets. This bootleg will actually do our work for us, because it's an infectious take on an iconic tune.
If you're in Denver, Colorado, she'll be joining a rogue's gallery of progressive bass provocateurs later this month. At a secret warehouse location on July 27th you can catch Beat Kitty alongside Dillard, Gramz, GrymeTyme, Kali, Kanizzle, Mesck, Mr Jennings, and so many more. It just so happens our festival friends Sub.mission and Subverted Entertainment (who provided the Funktion-One sound for our main stage) are coming together for this throwback rave.
And trust that you'll be hearing plenty more about Beat Kitty from us, as we're mega fans of Amanda Bo and everything that New Yorker does.
