Welcome to the dual natures that exist within the SKIP&DIE universe; filled with cosmic psychedelia, metamorphic body shaking, socio-political undertones and an infinite opposition to the status quo. Their debut album “Riots in the Jungle” was recorded on a transdisciplinary trip through  South Africa (lead singer Cata.Pirata’s homeland) and then finalized in the electronic valhalla of Amsterdam. The group consists of Jori Collignon on keys and FX, artist & vocalist Catarina Aimée Dahms aka Cata.Pirata, Gino Bombrini on percussion/guitar and Daniel Rose on sitar/guitar/saz. Genre-blending ...

SKIP&DIE unveil new video and single: “ANTI-CAPITALISTA”


Conceptualised and directed by frontwoman Cata.Pirata, it was shot during gaps in the band's relentless touring schedule



Speaking previously about the track and the video, Cata.Pirata said "The Universe is our muse. We explore it, we soak it all up, we form our own opinions, we shape our own journeys.  And we hope to stimulate the same cognitive shift in consciousness within our audience. Touching on poignant (social) matters is a way for us to destroy certain taboos  and thereby their repressive powers."

Asked how they're obviously not afraid to touch on politics in their songs, Cata.Pirata replied, "There are numerous paths to enlightenment, to each their own. But to make it clear, we don’t choose to share only our views on 'politics', we choose to share our 'views',  which so happen to contain notions of social struggle as well as personal poetics. The personal is political."

The band has been on an ongoing tour since the record was released in October. The live line-up consists of Cata.Pirata (vocals), Gino Bombrini (percussion, guitar), Nique Quentin (percussion),  Daniel Rose (guitar, sitar, saz) and René Kuhlmann (electronics).
