BRING IN THE KATZ FT PORK CHOP
12" Vinyl UK
For the third installment of our Club Construction series we proudly re-issue a modern classic straight out of Baltimore, USA.
Now "Bring In The Katz" isn't an old track, so why are we re-releasing it so soon? Because it's been the biggest dancefloor bomb in our sets for months and we feel it deserves attention far beyond its native Baltimore Club scene.
A few words about the track itself - a "Think" break and big 808 kicks are a staple of the genre and they're deployed here with precision. MC PORK CHOP commentates on the track's structure, calling on KW GRIFF to "Bring In The Katz", referring to a quintessential scat sample from the proto-Ballroom classic "Din Da Da" by Kevin Aviance. "Katz" is the epitome of an endothermic club track - once those "katz" drop get ready for the walls to cave in. A Club Construction through and through.
On the flip L-VIS 1990 gives us his dub mix. Stripping out the break and most of the vocals and focussing in on the hyper-rhythmic scat stab pattern of the original, L-Vis beefs up the bass and adds a cowbell to the equation. A simple process but a dramatic transformation that results in the most streamlined and effective pieces of club music we've heard in forever.
