Every respectable dance music label needs its own marquee DJ mix series, and Berlin-based Get Physical Recordings has Body Language. Fronting the 12th edition is Polish duo Catz ‘N Dogz, making their official DJ mix debut. These guys are not exactly “big names”... yet. Here, they offer a sharp mix of progressive house styles. You’ll hear some more familiar artists such as Justin Martin and Soul Clap, and you’ll also be introduced to some members of Catz ‘N Dogz’ own Pets Recordings stable such as Sqarehead and Eats Everything.

There is plenty of good stuff, and it gets more abstract as it goes on. Highlights include the King Britt project Saturn Never Sleeps’ UK garage “Take It Out” and the warped, retro-Chicago house of Alien Alien’s “Sambaca”.
