CD PETSCD001 Release : 18.03.2013 LP PETS030X Release : 18.02.2013
Pets Recordings is pleased to present Friends Will Carry You Home Too, the second installment of the celebrated compilation series compiled by label bosses Catz N Dogz. Marking the third anniversary of the label, Friends Will Carry You Home Too presents two CDs loaded with brand new exclusives from the Pets Recordings established and up-and-coming family of artists. While Disc One features the likes of Eats Everything, Breach & T. Williams, Tom Demac and Squarehead showcasing their take on the Pets fresh approach to club music, Disc Two sees artists such as Chmara Winter, Maribou State & Pedestrian, the late Martin Dawson and Catz N Dogz change it up with some more downtempo, diverse productions.
We decided to do two CDs because we wanted to show that our label is not just a house music outlet, explains one half of Catz N Dogz, Voitek. With CD2, we challenged some artists from our label and asked them to make something totally different from what they usually do - Eats Everythings Need is a perfect example.
The Pets house aesthetic flits characteristically through garage, harder bass atmospherics, techno and old school influences throughout the first CD, with A1 Basslines Trip Over, Breach and T. Williams And Then We and Justin Martins game-changing Rachel Row remix all showcasing the imprints innovative flavours. CD2 offers a chance for some of Polands finest to expose their experimental sides, with the likes of SLG, Drrax and Kixnare stepping up to the challenge, not to mention Catz N Dogz themselves who present a beautiful vocal offering featuring James Yuill.
Set to run alongside the launch of Pets Recordings international club takeovers, kick starting at Mexicos BPM festival in January and Berlins Watergate and Warsaws 1500 m2 in March 2013, Friends Will Carry You Home Too will be released on CD, Vinyl and Digital formats in March. Look out for a series of bespoke videos supporting a number of the compilations tracks, and an art show centered around the release featuring visuals and music in a changing environment. Friends Will Carry You Home Too is Pets biggest project to date and is set to catapult the label to new heights in 2013.
