Catz ‘N Dogz Announce Forthcoming Third Studio Album, Basic Colour Theory
The Polish DJs, producers and Pets Recordings’ label owners known for their electrifying performances and catchy cuts announce their third LP, ‘Basic Colour Theory’, a fruitful collection of evocative melodies and gorgeous vocals. This album marks a pivotal moment in their career as house outfit Catz ‘N Dogz.
Taking firm lead of the Eastern European electronic music revolution, the pair, who have previously graced the cover of both Mixmag and DJ Mag Spain, have for some time been poised for significant success as their international recognition on the underground has never lacked momentum.
‘Basic Colour Theory’ will add to the list of remarkable accolades the dynamic duo already have under their belt; joining their acclaimed Essential Mix in 2013, and weighty remixes for a who’s who in music electronic or otherwise, including Basement Jaxx, Kings Of Leon, Thomas Schumacher, Friendly Fires, and Kim Ann Foxman, not to mention their two previous LPs.
Colour; such a pervasive part of everything we visually encounter, and its many theories a logical structure that for many artists, designers and music producers becomes an intuitive choice – a melting pot of ideas and influences in varying quantities. Evoking particular moods and emotions through choice of palette in design and sound architecture.
In this full length offering, traditional songwriting meets Catz ‘N Dogz signature infectious basslines; a natural result of extensive sonic exploration and the osmotic process of years of DJing worldwide, all the while developing a deeper understanding of what they want to say through their music.
Their knack for reading a crowd just right has seen them lording stages of some of the most coveted festivals across the globe, including SW4, Park Life, Bestival, Snowbombing, Electric Daisy Carnival and BPM, and has also resulted in them being booked for the iconic Movement Festival 2015 (Detroit) and Exit Festival 2015 (Serbia). The same talent that has helped them achieve such stratospheric success is translated here in a collection of inviting tracks, as they showcase their on-point producing talents.
“It’s our third album and we did a lot of research, preparation, reading, watching documentaries about the music scene, people and looking for inspirations everywhere. We were talking a lot about people who inspire us, art, creative process, philosophy and meaning of work and music in our life.” Catz ‘N Dogz
From the off, opening cut ‘Good Touch’ exemplifies this is a true game changer for this unstoppable duo, and is the start of a fifteen-track voyage through experimental sounds as they explore a different approach to electronic music.
Basic Colour Theory will be released 19th May via Pets Recordings.

Worthy Releases Disbehave Remixes Part 1
Liberated and unchained, Worthy’s debut album, Disbehave, is the ultimate expression of his being – defiant, unexpected, and a work completely of his own design. Eighteen of Worthy’s long standing peers and cohorts hopped on remix duty to put their own unique spin on each track. Worthy and Anabatic Records excitedly present the equally original two part remix compilation with Disbehave Remixes Part 1, OUT NOW on Beatport and Disbehave Remixes Part 2, out March 17th. Stream Part 1 in its entirety right now.
Enlisting his favorite producers to remix the album, Worthy tapped Thugfucker, Stanton Warriors, Yolanda Be Cool, Matt Tolfrey, Nick Monaco, Walker & Royce, DJ Icey, Tom Budden, Saeed Younan, Mason, Aaron Snapes, Smalltown DJs, Jason Burns, Pezzner, Bachelors of Science, ADMN, Will Clarke, and Jamal. Each remixing artist applies their own personal style to thoughtfully rework the tracks to achieve something eclectic but true to Worthy’s disbehaving essence.
From salty aired islands to dark club basements, over the past 10 years Worthy has paid reverence to the traditional form of classic house while tripping off the mark and sinking into the euphoric less-charted territories of booty-clapping bass. As Carl Cox said, “The Worthy sound has always been powerful, rocking, funky, bass-driven music at its best, and for me this is the new wave in house music.” In 2001 he swapped coastlines, moving to San Francisco to pursue his music career. There he teamed up with Claude Von Stroke and Justin and Christian Martin, becoming one of the four founding fathers of the Dirtybird party, Worthy’s breakout track, Irst Te, released on the Dirtybird label in 2007, quickly established his notoriety as a producer. With other hits like ‘Shy Look,’ ‘Tric Trac’ (co-produced with Eats Everything) and the recently release track, ‘Dip,’ Worthy has been rocking the “Dirtybird” sound for nearly a decade now.
