Body Language 12


Body Language has reached its 12th edition, proving that you can't keep a good dog down. Mixed previously by acclaimed artists like DJ Hell, M.A.N.D.Y., Modeselektor, Dixon and more, it's now time to hand over the controls to the next in line. This time it's Polish duo and Pets Recordings lead-men, Catz 'N Dogz. As the artists themselves explain: "We grew up listening to people like DJ Koze, Dixon and DJ Hell (previous Body Language mixers) so it's a big honor for us ... It's nice that some of the classics (that we love), will be now known and heard at home by other people; thanks to this compilation. This is our first official mix compilation, so we wanted to make it very special. Most of the older tunes we put in our mix have a lot of meaning to us. J. Antoni, Rhythm Plate, Schatrax or Gant -- we have them on vinyl and through all these years the records are so used, that it is impossible to play them anymore in the club, because the needle always skips and they are really hard to get! For our own label, Pets Recordings, we get a lot of demos, and we got in touch with some new talents like Eats Everything, Chmara Winter, Trikk and Squarehead. They made really cool exclusive tracks for us and every track is very different and special. We are especially very happy with the Chmara Winter track and the SLG edit of Chez Damier and Robert Bosco, because it adds another Polish artist to the mix; and these guys are really talented. We really wanted to show that it is possible to put every kind of genre of club music in one mix. That's the idea of the cover; it shows our heads cut in half and with layers inside. When we play in the club, we play very similarly and we change the mood very often and try to keep things fresh and the surprise factor high." Other artists include: Desolate, Soul Clap, Mel Blatt, Safeword, Saturn Never Sleeps, Sean Thomas, Rhythm Plate, Atjazz, Justin Martin, Pezzners, Braiden, Clay & Deller, Zack Toms' Parade, Till von Sein, Jon Hester, Laverne Radix, Elon, Alien Alien, Kari Amirian and Tin Man.
