"Cuatrocats" starts off with ominous pads coupled with some fun sample work that drops into a classic heavy Dogs bassline. The b-side"Bounce" is an energetic roller which is guaranteed to get feet moving, fists pumping and heads nodding."
Strip the original track's polyrhythms and chants down to a booming kick, smatterings of drum rolls, shuffling, slap-happy hi-hats, woozy synthlines, and snippets of the original vocal. The raucous end result is like Masters at Work on steroids, a raw, garage-flavored rump-shaker tempered by warm, melodic breaks and undertones. It's an infectious distillation of a catchy groove that will make you feel good while you do good.
Dogs are back with their 3rd Night Bass EP and it's an absolute monster. The Westcoaster EP kicks off with the title track, a road tested smasher with a haunting intro that builds up into one of the most energetic drops we've heard in a while. The flipside "Gotta Move" is more classic dog's peak-hour energy, a heavy and driving bassline on top of a bed of skippy and shuffley drums that will leave people frothing. This is must-have ammo for those big sets.
