Splashdown: Pets are here to squeeze every drip from your summer with a sweet four-track collection that’s precision primed for any poolside soiree you might be indulging in this season. Grab a towel, a little juice and your nearest dearests for a series of slinky, sleazy, sunny-side sounds.
Eats Everything gets the shindig in swing with the ‘Chitter Chatter’, a sought-after dub version that’s been a staple of his sets for a while now. Humming with fuzzy weight and a head-turning detuned key riff on the fills, it sets the shuffle for the deeper, left-side tech funk grooves to follow.
Walker & Royce paddle back to 1997 with a slick fix-up of Chicago don Gemini’s ‘On This Planet’. Maintaining the alien-landing eeriness, existential narrative and loafing bassline, the Brooklyn duo bring it up to date with a soft-but-stern jack that really pops on the second drop and brings their dubby signature to life.
Stefano Ritteri takes us for a deeper dive into the pool with a stunning cosmic composition that’s drenched in emotion. Classic Border Community feels that turn everything into a slo-mo sunset, Stefano’s ability to nice things up has impressed since his label debut in 2013.
Finally old Hercules & Love Affair comrades Kim Ann Foxman and Shaun J Wright reunite with the ultimate transition from pool to party; a timeless late night New York house groove builds with a ripplingly crisp synth hook, star gazing textures and sleepy, dreamy harmonies.
Soaked with originality, wet with rich grooves; whether your crowd are lounging or lively this summer, this will satiate.
