Catz N Dogz

Polish duo Catz N Dogz released their latest podcast/mix for Resident Advisor earlier today. For this very special mix they have reached right to the back of their record shelves in order to present the length of breadth of their house music interests. These are two of the most talented men in music right now. Interview and tracklist after the jump. Listen and download the podcast HERE.

What have you been up to recently?

The main thing is that we are in the middle of an album tour, playing DJ sets, playing live all over the world. We are kinda workaholics so we do everything at the same time. Right now we have couple of residences in Polish clubs and one at Berlin’s Farbferhnseher, where from time to time we invite friends to play.

We’re working on our label, Pets Recordings, (signing new artists, remixes and the new website is online now). We also want to do some videos. After the album we are already focusing on some new stuff that will come out and, of course, a lot of edits. Oh, and there will be album remixes coming out as well. (Carl Craig, Sect, Julio Bashmore.)

How and where was the mix recorded?

The mix was recorded in Ableton during our travels but we first ripped a lot of our old vinyl. Actually the biggest amount of time that we spend doing this mix was the track selection.

Can you tell us a bit more about the mix?

We wanted to do a mix that includes the whole spectrum of music that we play at parties. We play big room parties but small private venues in Berlin and in Poland as well. For us the biggest fun is to play various stuff.

How healthy would you say the electronic music scene is in Poland currently?

It’s a very difficult question… There are a lot of cool parties in various locations. If you want to party you should visit Warsaw, Poznan, Krakow and Wroclaw. Clubs have better soundsystems than a few years back and line-ups are cool. The best are festivals in the summertime: Audioriver, Opener, Boogie Brain, Tauron, Unsound and many more. We’re very happy that there are more and more new producers and the quality is OK. Some people still produce only for their friends and they don’t want to release it because they are too shy. This is one of the reasons why we started Pets.

Your recent album featured a dubstep track in “Only for The Moment”: is this a genre you will look to explore more thoroughly in the future?

We are working right now on a new project but we can’t say anything more because we don’t know exactly what it is until it’s finished. [laughs]

What are you up to next?

Increasing workoholizm.

In The City

After releasing one of my favourite House tracks of 2010 (Gonna Be Alright); Martin Dawson & Crom have teamed up once again to create something which is nothing short of spectacular. Most of you Hip-Hop heads will recognize the sample, but those of you that don’t - they have sampled ‘Summer In The City’ by Quincy Jones’ which was used by The Pharcyde on one of their most successful singles; Passin’ Me By. This track is available on their latest EP, which is called About You. These guys really know how to make music.

New track from Martin Dawson, who was behind the title track of my last mix, Gonna Be Alright. This guy seems to be smashing it with every production he does. Incredibly funky.

Gone Fishing

So yeah, I decided to this post tonight, because tomorrow is gonna be much busier I had originally planned. Above is the beach I will be spending the majority of my Holiday on, which means I won’t be blogging while I’m away. I’ve been holding most of these tracks back so that I could post them all together. If you have the time, then you should definitely check them all out.

While I’m here I would also like to say thank you to EVERYONE that has visited and supported the blog over the past few months. Never in my life did I expect to have nearly 12,000 views from over 2000 visitors. That’s just crazy.

Anyway, hit the jump for all the music.

Seeya in two weeks,


First up is a new track from (the beautiful) Michelle Owen, which is called Dee & Deaf. One of the funkiest tracks of 2010; she has created a sound that you don’t hear very often these days. I hope you can all guess which famous rapper/actor is on the vocals?

Secondly is my favourite of the 9 tracks. This is soulful house at its very best. The progression of the track is perfect and the use of the vocal from one of the greatest songs EVER simply make it one of the best tracks of the year. Producer goes by the name of Thyladomid and the track is entitled, The Voice.

“Birds flying high, you know how I feel”

Next up is ‘club banger’ from Matteo DiMarr. I’ve heard that this is getting played everywhere right now, and you can understand why. A very bass heavy progressive house track, which features a young man called Dashka who is rather good on the ol’ Saxaphone. Blower.

First remix in this post comes courtesy of my favourite DJ/House producer in the world, Mr. Jesse Rose. The track is called ‘Bit This Thin’ and is by Djedjotronic, who is singed to Boys Noize’s record label. Everything about this is spot on. Best remix from the EP that came out at the end of last month. Actually cannot wait to see Jesse at the end of August.

Second remix is by Huxley, and is of a track called ‘Gonna Be Alright’, which I used in my most recent mix. Not sure where the vocal is from, but it’s one of the best I’ve heard in a long time. Definitely a progression from Martin Dawson & Andre Crom’s original - funkier and much more enjoyable to listen to.

Here is a track from German producer Kabale Und Liebe, which features The Fog. Tech-House done right is the most exceptional sound in the world and this is the perfect example of that. Since You Looked Into My Eyes is something that I can see DJ’s playing A LOT over the next few months. Massive.

Two producers who have had a under-stated, yet superb 2010 are David Penn & Rober Gaez. This track, which is entitled ‘Sunshine People’, shows you what they are all about. Happy music, with a whole lot of groove, that your mum and dad will probably love too.

“Lets be happy”

The last remix is of Tom Demac’s ‘Crewcuts and Curls’ and comes courtesy of possibly the coolest man in the world; Jamie Jones. Since the release of his debut album, he has been rather quiet with his producing as of late, but he’s made up for this absolute JAM that is impossible to dislike. Guy is a genius.

Finally is probably the most beautiful of all the tracks I’ve posted. The production from Leif alone would have been sufficient, but with the stunning vocals of Donna Lea on top; this is just musical heaven. Priority is a special song and the perfect way to end this post.

Thanks for listening people.
