10 years of beautiful, meaningful house, techno and forward-thinking electronic music. 10 years of building a community, encouraging exciting new talent from around the world. 10 years of supporting local talent and proudly being the product of Poland. 10 years of friendship. 10 years of Pets Recordings.
When Catz ‘n Dogz established their own label in 2010 their sole mission was to ensure it never became ‘just another dance label’. A decade deep, their mission has been accomplished so far. With the label’s remit as broad and innovative as the duo’s productions and DJ sets, the focus has always been on soul, realness and human connections. From Eats Everything’s debut single ‘Entrance Song’ to Rachel Row and husband KiNK’s first single together ‘Follow The Step’ to the numerous ‘Friends Will Carry You Home’ collections, Pets has never lost sight of its purpose or raison d’etre. They’ve been as faithful as the family hound, as cool as the family cat and as curious as the family crocodile in their output, energy and creativity since day one.
To celebrate, the label has curated this exceptional 12-track collection of exclusives from their nearest and dearest. One fat album delivered over two massive EPs, ’10 Years Of Pets’ captures the full rave rainbow of the label and its many friends and facets; the raging bull acid slapper ‘BADACID’ from Eats Everything, the fully-juiced disco dynamite of Monki’s ‘The Shed’, the dubby hip-slinking finesse of Joyce Muniz’s ‘Eastbound’, the soft-focus uplift and daydream delight of Jeigo‘s ‘Tell Me How It Feels’, the jazzy electro wriggles and squiggles of Black Loops’ ‘Velvet’, the list goes on.
Here’s to another 10 years of beautiful, meaningful house, techno and forward-thinking electronic music.
