LAZ & CAT, Triceptus Studios Music’s first Hip-Hop music group under the year old music label will release their first CD, Tricity Vol. I., worldwide on Friday, July 16, 2010 on iTunes first, then Amazon, Emusic, Rhapsody, Sprint, T-Mobile, and many other online music retailers worldwide after the release date. Tricity Vol I., a fourteen (14) track LP, has been a year-long passion work for Triceptus Studios Executive Producers artists, Jay “Lazurus” Holland (LAZ), and Crosby “Catipus” Tatum (CAT); who both make up Laz & Cat and who also founded Triceptus Studios Music, a new independent record label started by the two in 2009.
“Laz, myself and our contributors are all very proud and excited over what we worked so hard to put together,” says Cat. “We feel like we created a very unique sound that’s fun to listen to. We feel that our songs are very catchy, a little melodic, fast pace, emotional, and overall entertaining for many Hip-Hop & R&B music fans to enjoy and take notice of our talents and abilities.” “Tricity is an album that will have a little something for everyone and with the initial responses we have already, we just can’t wait to share our music for the entire world to see what Laz & Cat are all about,” adds Cat.
Tricity Vol. I features a new crop of New England Hip-Hop and R&B artists in Jayo-City, The General, Mugsy, Ms. Smith, and NV who are all prominently featured in one form or another in the album. Two of Laz & Cat’s songs, FEEL & Fantasy Girl, both have music videos shot to them, as Laz & Cat have produced, conceptualized, directed, and edited these videos in film-like High-Definition (HD).
Several of Laz & Cat's hit songs have already have had radio airplay in the past few months, such as WAVE 103.7FM Boston, Online radio stations - DIVE FM Boston, MA, North Shore Community College - Salem, MA, UCLA Radio, Los Angeles, California, and 982 THE BEAT in Los Angeles, California. Laz & Cat’s latest video, Fantasy Girl, was recently selected as an official entrant into Reelfest 2, a local Independent Film Festival, hosted by renowned local filmmaker & actor Rod Webber. To prepare for the release of Tricity, Catipus of Laz & Cat will be documenting his daily activities via weblog on Triceptus’s Youtube Channel to promote the release of Tricity.
