Catamaran – “Goth Creep”
Our friends at Gold Robot Records are back at it with the second installment of their ongoing 7″ series. Whereas the first round featured the collaborative efforts of Oakland, California’s Colossal Yes and Fayetteville, Arkansas’ The Good Fear (cop it here), their latest team-up features New York, New York’s Catamaran and Columbus, Ohio’s RUMTUM. And the outcome, as you’d imagine, is infested with mellow tribal overtones and enough summertime vibes to last you until next summer. With that said, you should probably read what Catamaran and Gold Robot Records had to say about the release, stream Catamaran’s new single “Goth Creep,” and purchase the 7″ below:
“Goth Creep” is a step out of the box for a normally 100% electronic producer. With the use of guitar in a this song, I was able to take my sound in another direction. It was the perfect candidate for a single because it’s a moment in time where I captured a specific sound that I would be pressed to touch on again.

This second entry in our split 7″ series pairs RUMTUM (Columbus, Ohio) with Catamaran (New York, New York), two artists who produce a range of electronic beats and patterns to create infectious tracks. There’s an otherworldly, distant urgency to both “New Lands” / “Sea Gypsies” and “Goth Creep”. The limited edition vinyl version features two original productions while the digital release includes reciprocal re-workings by each artist. Mastered by Nick Carden in the Blue Room (Oakland, California). The artwork for this release was created by Ted Feighan (Monster Rally) in cooperation with the artists. The digital cover seen above is an amalgamation of the dual covers found on the vinyl edition.
