Cubicles – Saturday

What you get with Katalyst first and foremost, is a passion for music. Musical creation is, it seems, hard-wired into her circuitry. Even as a child, she grabbed every opportunity to learn as much as she could, learning to play the violin, clarinet, guitar, drums and piano before she even left school. Simultaneously, she was discovering her love for breakbeats, her musical understanding allowing her to connect the dots between traditional instrumentalism and sample-based genres like breaks. Of course, someone with her drive and love of discovery was never going to be content simply as a fan of breakbeat-based music. She had to be involved. So she acquired her first set of decks, began studying the art of mixing, and Katalyst came into being. As drum ‘n’ bass grew in her affections to become her genre of choice, her name began popping up on flyers alongside top tier deejays. Her three-sixty selections and deep respect for the craft of deejaying have quickly established that she’s bringing something highly individual to the table, and people are taking notice. You can expect to hear a Katalyst set channel a deep and dark underground techy vibe, with a healthy sprinkling of ragga and jungle sounds. Masterful mixing and a potent collection of signature double drops give these sets an impact that dominates any dancefloor they hit. With all her technical musical knowledge, her focus on improvement and her sheer love for breaks and the sound of DnB, Katalyst is already set for big things.
