Watergate 22

WG 022CD WG 022CD

For the 22nd installment in its mix series, Watergate turns to the dynamic Polish duo Catz 'N Dogz, two close friends of the club who also happen to be some of the most sought-after selectors out there. The story of the fabled friendship goes back to the mid-2000s, when the duo first played the club -- the opening moment in what has become a series of countless returns to both the Main and Water floors as well as Watergate's open-air summer events and club showcases throughout Europe. Within Watergate 22, Catz 'N Dogz perfectly encapsulate the vibe of each Watergate environment with 27 tracks in just over an hour's time. The duo showcase their knowledge of all things house, diving into every corner of the genre to effortlessly blend the sounds of legends like DJ Garth & Eric James, Joakim, K' Alexi, Jackmate, and Mr. G with the brightest talents of the 2010s, including Moomin (with a rework of Acasual's "Spring Theory"), Willie Burns, and 76 79. The mix also features seven stunning exclusives -- one by way of heavyweights Eats Everything & Lord Leopard and six from Catz 'N Dogz themselves, demonstrating their penchant for collaborations on tracks with Reno Wurzbacher, Shaun J. Wright, and Yotam Avni, as well as their love for edits with revisions of Da Posse's "In The Heat Of The Night" and Todd Terry's "Tee's Groove" -- all before ending the mix with their final exclusive, the absolutely timeless original "Fire Burning When We Are." The final result is an expertly crafted and finely tuned journey through house music from two artists at the very top of their game. Also includes tracks by City People, Rogue D, Krikor, Andy Kolwes, Mystic Bill, Zoo Brazil, Credit 00, Stashrider, Damian Schwartz, Two Armadillos, Bruce Trail, and Heiko Laux.
