Thomas Schumacher - Hush (Catz 'n Dogz 2013 Remix) EP [PETS038]

by catz 'n dogz, thomas schumacher



Hush is a lolloping, booty-shifting rendition of an old Thomas Schumacher track Schall. Written under Thomass alter-ego Elektrochemie LK, the original (released in 1996), was a wonderfully crude sonic scud missile that informed and influenced techno artists on both sides of the Atlantic. Spitfire tempo a-go-go, it embodies the very spirit of the term funky techno thanks its fine balance of snub-nosed grit and demonstratively outlandish bassline.

Always inspired by this epic floor-slammer, Greg and Voitek had been toying with the idea of creating a respectful edit. Then, thanks to a chance backstage encounter, their dream of paying it the ultimate homage with an official remix was realised earlier this year. It turns out Thomas is just as much of a fan of Catz N Dogz are they are of him so he unearthed the old dusty DAT tape and told them to do their best.

Naturally the duo have stepped up in every way. The nagging vocal loop leads the charge as a soft kick drum sets the drive. Cue hand claps, cue off-beat snare hits, cue bold splashing hi-hats. A bombardment of the senses ensues as one of Catz N Dogz juiciest ever basslines thunders its way into the mix along with classic detuned synth stabs and more iconic vocal loops. With lightning strike build-ups, fluctuating frequency textures and a groove thats so powerful it could feed a family of four for an entire month, it doesnt just pay Thomass original respect but showcases Catz N Dogz at their funkiest and most creative.

Complete with trippy artwork from Parisian artist Oliver Flandrois, Hush has been tried and tested in every Catz N Dogz & Thomas Schumacher set since the summer. If theres a better way to end their most productive year to date, weve yet to hear it.
