Revered duo Catz ’n Dogz make an anticipated return to Watergate Records, joining forces with Mexican artist Theus Mago for a debut collaboration.
Catz ’n Dogz dropped their maiden dispatch on the Berlin imprint over a decade ago. Since then, they’ve become standout favourites after a stack of first-rate cuts, a contribution to its exalted mix series with Watergate 22, and regular appearances at the club, highlights including an album launch and a special showcase for their label’s ten year anniversary. The link up with prolific producer Theus Mago - who makes his first appearance on Watergate Records - comes after him making multiple appearances on the duo’s Pet Recordings outfit, as well as impressing them with his diverse output on his own label Duro.
‘Understand’ is the cut that leads and it’ll quickly become apparent that this musical union deviates from the label’s typical sound. An oddball sonic trip packed with spacey synths, it’s driven by a galloping bassline and punchy slaps. ‘Fly’ wades further into retro-dipped territory, plunging listeners into an ‘80s-spun domain with crashing drums and a cascade of erratic synth work. ‘Intuición’ brings the EP to a thrilling close, gathering speed and intensity with rapid-fire hi-hats, razor-sharp synths notes and unrelenting, rolling groove.
