Where Niklas Gustavsson and Peter Johansson’s ‘Cool Cat, Hot Dog’ had already propped up on our radar, British House enthusiast Dan Castro is on hand to produce an asset to the overall package for Groovetraxx. Injecting a firm backbone of low-end wobbles and sportingly modest transitions, Castro’s ability to respect the originals substance while throwing his own characteristic flare on eclectic House cuts into the equation reigns supreme. Where the Swedish duos original made for a forward thinking outing amid their home crowd, Castro’s take is a satisfying endeavour that sheds some positive light on the British scene and its rising contenders.
‘Cool Cat, Hot Dog’ is released March 26th via Groovetraxx Records.
