Release of the Day
Catz 'n Dogz welcome old friend and kindred spirit Alvaro Cabana to the Pets family with this powerful quartet of electric bulldozers. Building on the momentum he's been enjoying on his own Rotten City label, here we find the Spanish DJ in overdrive with three originals and one version.
'Ritmo Espiral' starts and ends the piece. Slapping with electroid spikiness and a pushed groove that thumps like it's the mid 2000s all over again, there's a timelessness here to both the original and the dub mix that bubble over with dark funk and nod in all directions from Black Strobe to Tiefschwarz.
They're joined by two more big time bruisers: 'Los Muertos Misteriosos' continues the electro theme with waves and layers of textures crashing down over a relentless drum/sub swagger while 'Barrio Solar' revels and writhes in more of Alvaro's groovecraft. Tight guitars, shimming top notes and a breakdown that will send you into space. Strap in tight, we'll see you on the other side.
