Various Artists Straight Out Of The Catlitter 4: The Cats Get Remixed
- Words: Brock Phillips
- Label: Catskills
Birthed from the same litter as labels like Manchester's Grand Central and London's Ninja Tune, Brighton's Catskills Records has always been known for putting a fresh step on dance music. The remix compilation idea itself isn't exactly breaking new ground, but the Catskills crew has done an admirable job in pairing up the artists being remixed with those doing the mixing. Quantic kicks things off with a stellar take on Bushy's original track buoyed by a rolling breakbeat, while other highlights include the skittish 2-step of Space Raiders and the leisurely basslines that are the hallmark of Bonobo's studio re-rubs.
