Katy B “On a Mission” (2011)

December 15, 2011

Although Katy B plays with electronic and pop music, that girl just rocks. Her stunning debut On a Mission deserves all the accolades as it feels infinite on singles: catchy as hell, emotional and intelligent tunes ready to sweep out the club. Dubstep may be dominated by men but it is a 22-year-old girl from South London who has delivered one of the most danceable records of this year. Damn, she is too good. Katy does not waste any time and attacks with Power on Me just as the album kicks off. It is like when you enter a nightclub and that cool song is being played to introduce you to the general mood. Katy on a Mission, a huge hit in the UK, may be the best track here. Katy sings This right here I swear will end too soon and it is sad but true. Witches’ Brew is built around some video game beats and finds the singer at her most adventurous. Movement feels rather like a swagger and has got funny voice mutation. The emotional centre of the LP is undoubtedly Broken Record, a fresh recipient of Pitchfork’s one of The Top 100 Tracks of the Year title. Easy Please Me is the best of three songs produced by Magnetic Man. Finally, Hard to Get closes this gem giving you a feeling of shaking off from a great gig.
