Thee Cool Cats

As most of our dance aficionados may be aware, The BPM Festival in beautiful Playa Del Carmen, Mexico –which more or less features a “who’s who” lineup of proper house, techno, disco and every niche genre in between–  is just within a day away from what will most rightly be an absurd, dance and party-favor fueled 9 days -and quite the important party for much of the dance community worldwide. So when we heard one of House music’s most prominent labels, Toolroom Records, was putting out a special mix and album –Toolroom Mexico– to kick things off, mixed by one of 2014’s most successful American underground dance artists making their label debut, Thee Cool Cats; our interest was more than piqued.

Featured within their stellar mix album which includes an eclectic batch of house cuts from Dusky, Doorly, Vanilla Ace, Todd Terry, Green Velvet and loads more, lies Thee Cool Cats’ latest offering: “Swerve”. “Swerve”, to say the least, is a bouncy slice of carefully crafted, tech-fueled G-House in the same vein as the scuzzy vibrations coming out of the Dirtybird camp. We’ve heard Thee Cool Cats delve into breezy disco, club-floor G-House; and this latest wrinkle in their production game is as appealing as anything else from the forward thinking dance producers. We’re bounced from proto-typical, and expertly engineered G-House to the blissful feels that have come to attach themselves to Thee Cool Cats’ stainless output effortlessly, creating a unique playability which wouldn’t sound out of place while cruising in your station wagon or the middle of a clammy, peak-hour dancefloor. “Swerve” is available for download on Beatport now, and for our friends out in Playa Del Carmen this week, be safe and bump this one in the sun.
