It’s time now for Jimi Jules’ second installment of exclusives from his recent Watergate Mix compilation and this one is heavily focused on Jules’ collaborations, remixes and edits. Starting off with his collaboration with Jules & Jesaya +4 BPM edit of heavyweights Âme’s 119 BPM, where hefty, pumping low end and slick, rigorous hats set the pace for a brutal but sexy bassline guaranteed to demolish any dance floor at any moment. Jimi Jules & Domenico Ferrari’s ‘Parkuhr’ follows up with a focus on slick, low slung minimalism as a seemingly simple groove is highlighted with playful vocals, wobbly sonic effects and a real life conversation interjected as the break. Changing gears, Jules takes a dive into the past on his remix of Egopusher’s ‘Flake’ where cinematic storytelling and flickers of Italo Disco seem to blend seamlessly creating a timeless composition that will shine for an eternity to come. For the final cut of the EP, Jimi takes us back to a place we seem to know him best on his remix of Ed Ed & Petja Virikko’s ‘Sundroina feat Jinadu’ where he creates wildly sexy cuts with his signature organic percussion palette, lavish keys and starry eyed vocals.

Following the exclusive heavy mix compilation that Jimi Jules knocked out for us recently, it’s time to deliver on those exclusives via two EP’s from the man himself and we kick things off with EP number one, ‘Midnight Juggernaut’ where Jules’ studio prowess is on full display with three stellar originals including a remix from the mighty Recondite. Jimi’s ‘Abandoned Soul’ original starts the EP and is equal parts moody as it is groovy as classic 303 acid fuses with Jules’ post modern drum programming resulting in a smooth, yet energetic ride into the shimmering corners of dance floor euphoria. Recondite steps up and delivers a beautiful rework of ‘Abandoned Soul’ in true Recondite fashion keeping all the original parts in tact while incorporating the lush melodic progressions he is so well known for.
Next up is the title track from the EP ‘Midnight Juggernaut’, where Jules shows his affinity for artfully crafted minimalism as remnants of early Perlon stylings merge with a more modern melodic approach where the seemingly empty spaces are filled lush, sonic textures. Rounding out the EP is ‘Othervision’ as Jules’ puts “four to the floor” to full use as one single lead line carries the tune to an incognito crescendo of emotion emanating in a well thought out and expertly crafted EP with something for everyone and every situation.

Picking up right where EP #1 left off, EP #2 kicks things off with a bang. First up is Catz 'N Dogz and Yotam Avni's for 'Blakkat'; a high pace burner ideally suited for dance floors from Panorama Bar to under the LED's of Watergate and every club in-between.
The duo return with the 'Bright Version' of 'Afterglow' for the second cut on EP 2 and aptly titled, it pushes an intense, glitter filled ride to it's limits.
Embarking onto the B-side, 'O.A. Peas' from heavy hitter Eats Everything & Lord Leopard take a trip down memory lane with a heavily sample based feel good tune that will absolutely demolish dance floors worldwide.
Rounding out the EP is a final collaboration between Catz 'N Dogz and Reno Wurzbacher with 'To Ma People' and it's by far the smoothest and most laid back tune of the bundle, but never does it let you rest as a mesmerizing groove and lush atmospherics tell a deep, complex tale of late nights and early mornings.

Flying high after their successful Watergate 22 compilation, Catz N' Dogz return to deliver eight exclusive tracks from their mix via two EP's showcasing their expert ability to navigate a multitude of different styles.
EP #1 commences with Catz 'N Dogz original 'Fire Burning When We Are', a tune that sees them flying solo to create a stunning journey that lands somewhere sonically between Carl Craig and Henrik Schwarz where infectious drums reinforce an ensemble of dramatic harmonies tangling with euphoric melodies.
'Afterglow' follows suit with an attitude infused vocal from Shaun J. Wright laid over a trek into a world where 'Old School' vibes meet a 'New School' plan of attack resulting in an absolute floor filler perfect for any time.
Rounding out the EP are remixes from two of the best: Prosumer and Sebo K. Prosumer steps up first to rework 'Fire Burning When We Are' and creates a massive tune with the signature Prosumer touch, evident in the timelessness and maturity of the reimagining. Sebo K in turn hands over a Jackin' remake of 'Afterglow' by staying true to the original by keeping everything as simple as possible, but not simpler.

First appearing on Watergate with a phenomenal remix of Ruede Hagelstein’s ‘Soul Dynamic’ last year, we are more than overzealous to announce Fur Coat’s reappearance with their debut EP ‘Interstellar’. Known for their deep and hypnotic yet fiercely engaging sound of dramatic melodies and formidable low end, the duo paint a vivid display of emotional dance floor scenarios in two exquisitely crafted tracks. ‘Interstellar’ takes off with heavy, pulsating drums and long blasts of sub bass as an enchanting exhibit of melodic wash over open spaces. The flip side sees the two join forces with the sultry voice of Delhia de France on ‘Desire Of Mine’ creating a deeply emotional tune that pulses with climactic fever. Returning the favor for last year’s remix, Ruede expertly twists the original ‘Desire Of Mine’ with his unique brushstroke of sweltering organic percussion and infectious atmospheres ideal for a multitude of events.
