New album

„Tempo“ is the essence of „Rockin ́Favela Funk“ from Rio, „Township Grooves“ from South Africa and „Hybrid Tech“ named Kuduro from Angola! Gato Preto producer Lee Bass rolled out the perfect sound carpet for the Femcee Gata Misteriosa and her portuguese power punchlines. Both have met in their hometown Düsseldorf. Gata grew up is Lisbon and her roots are in Mozambique. Lee`s roots are half in Ghana and half in Germany. His dad used to be a Funk and Soul Dj and owner of a Club – no wonder he was influenced by african and black music from around the world. Gato Preto built their name through stunning high energetic live performances where they combine Electronic Beats with powerful live percussions from Senegal – Worldmusic with todays Club Attitude combined with sensible ingredients of last decades black music sound! From 2013 onwards they have been rocking dancefloors around the Globe: No matter if its a hip electro club in Paris, an event in their home town Düsseldorf, or on international stages like „Nyege Nyege“-Festival in Uganda: When the black cat comes around, everyone will understand: their global bass power and progressive metropolitan grooves are unstoppable.
