Murder, Inc. mogul Irv Gotti has signed many influential urban acts in his career, from rapper Ja Rule to R&B songstress Ashanti. Now, he’s taking on a new type of artist: pop group Thunderkatz. Producers Mel & Mus jump on board the Atlanta-based group’s new pop-urban single, 3 AM; an up-tempo club number mixing electric, ’80s throwback synths with sultry piano notes. Looking to create a musical confection worthy of their far more famous labelmates, the sextet’s electro-punk influences combined with a ghetto savvy make for pure listening pleasure. Watch for the group’s debut, 19hundred80something, which is set to drop in the fourth quarter of this year.
