DA Premiere: Walker & Royce – Peep This Cat (Original Mix)
New York-based house duo Walker & Royce have amassed an impressive pedigree of releases on prestigious house labels — everything from Damian Lazarus’ Crosstown Rebels, Catz N’ Dogz’ Pets Recordings, to of course the inimitable Dirtybird Records. For their forthcoming EP Peep This Cat, out October 28 on the esteemed Chicago imprint Relief Records, the emerging duo continue their streak of garnering approval from among the most established names in dance music.
The A-side and title track of the release is a groovy cut interspersed with tongue-in-cheek samples of chirping birds, dingruntled cats, and a call to “peep this cat.” Jungle-inspired percussion and horn-like synth tones add a mysterious flair to the whimsical production. The funky breakdown is sure to turn up the heat on dancefloors from the club to the Birdhouse, where Walker & Royce performed at Dirtybird Campout earlier in October.
