Dreamy soundscapes, crisp percussive rhythms, glowing melodic waves and emotive top lines all contribute to the colour filled canvas of Catz ‘N Dogz latest long player. And while not every inclusion on the 15-track album is a potential anthem, it’s a definite ray of sunshine against an otherwise overcast sky. The Polish duo has linked up with an extensive list of vocal talents to, James Yuill, Rosalie, Zensofly, Maxville, Taco Hemingway, Kiddy Smile, Rouge Mary, WhoMadeWho, Jono McCleery and Egle
Sirvydyte all put their labour of love into this one. The genre folders are broad too, everything from straight-up dancefloor focused house to uptempo, pop-touched electronica. Pre-release EP’s for the album included There and New Love, and were packaged with excellent remix work from Michael Mayer, Gerd Janson and Andrea Oliva.
Where to start:
‘Wave’ – Stripped back vocal track that’s heavy on sensual vibes
‘One Plus You’ – A nostalgic nod to glory days of dance music
‘Questions’ – A 5am afterparty soundtrack with soft basslines and non-English vocals
