Catz 'N Dogz

Body Language 12

(Get Physical; US: 6 Nov 2012; UK: 29 Oct 2012)

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”.

Rating:

John Bergstrom has been writing various reviews and features for PopMatters since 2004. He has been a music fanatic at least since he and a couple friends put together The Rock Group Dictionary in third grade (although he now admits that giving Pat Benatar the title of "first good female rocker" was probably a mistake). He has done freelance writing for Trouser Pressonline, Milwaukee's Shepherd Express, and the late Milk magazine and website. He currently resides in Madison, Wisconsin with his wife and two kids, both of whom are very good dancers.
