Biography

Language: English

Catz ‘n Dogz are back with their second full length artist album on mothership. The follow-up to 2008‘s

“Stars of Zoo” is a clear break from convention and a further exploration of genres by this amazing Polish duo.

Hence the new album’s title, “Escape from Zoo” the guys break free from the cage and run wild in a wilderness

full of street bass, disco, R&B, deep house, hip-hop and more.

The new album took an entire year to create and will be out in September, 2010 with vinyl singles dropping

throughout the summer. It is a fantastic adventure through a jungle of genres including collaborations with heavy

hitters dOP, Claude Vonstroke and Jazzanova’s vocalist Paul Randolph. The guys have taken extra care to make

it a special project with exclusive vinyl versions and bonus tracks. And one of the lead singles has already been

blessed by a remix from the legendary Carl Craig.

If you don’t know them by now, their full Polish names are Grzegorz and Wojchiech but you can call them

Greg and Voitek. As DJs you are likely to find them playing disco/deephouse at the small parties they organize

frequently in Berlin and Szczecin as well as tech-house and techno at festivals and big clubs all over the world.

Back in 2003 they started it all off by organizing a club night in their home town of Szczecin, Poland. This night

soon became a residency and their reputation grew quickly. A radio show soon followed on Szczecin’s ABC Radio

allowing them to explore their creativity and gain a legion of fans. Soon after that, they began to produce records

together as the techno centric “3 Channels,” eventually evolving into Catz N Dogz – a grooving, category-free

mixture of modern music.

Since their first record on Trenton in 2005 the guys have appeared on the brightest underground labels

such as Trapez, Crosstown Rebels, Pokerflat, Boxer, Dirtybird, Leena and their own Channels Records. Currently

they collaborate both with Mothership and Get Physical and have launched a new label PETS which aim is to

promote Polish artists. They also started their own party “Pets Gone Wild” at the best club in Poland called SQ and

are hoping to help break down doors for up and coming Polish producers who may have been overlooked in the

past.

**About mothership: Based in San Francisco, but inspired by Claude VonStroke’s hometown of Detroit, mothership

is the experimental sister label to dirtybird records. A large percentage of the proceeds from mothership go to a

school in downtown Detroit that teaches and enables children to learn how to make music, as well as many other

skills necessary to compete in the modern world.
