Pets Recordings continue to thrive as a stable for forward thinking house music and its creators. Always seeking to extend their already widening sound further, label chiefs Catz 'n Dogz are constantly on the hunt for fresh, new and ultimately unique talent and having delighted us with the melancholic 'Pop' of Glimpse & Martin Dawson's "Our Friends" (don't forget to check out the incredible video) and ignited our floors with their very own "Mass Confusion / Professor Nice Love" release, the Pets are now ready to introduce an artist who's music sits proudly and creatively between the two Uffe.
Uffe Christensen has always been inspired by sampling and experimental music. A fact most obvious when listening to his productions. Having began his creative process on his fathers old PC, it was a move to Cophenhagen, working as a DJ/booker and immersing himself within the city's music scene that really helped him develop his skills and sound. Now living in Amsterdam and having dipped his toe into many a genre, his own work as Uffe is very much a musical menagerie.
Uffe's debut for Pets is a three track delight that glistens throughout. The 'vinyl only' title cut "Colors Outside" with its sweet vocal, tickled ivories and ice cube shakers give it an Avalanches feel and confirm it as the perfect summer soundtrack. The sun has disappeared behind the clouds and night draws in on, "I'll Leave Soon." A wistful vocal over a single note bassline leads us to a dramatic build before twisted acid and warm bass take over.
Catz 'n Dogz get to grips with "I'll Leave Soon" and turn in a floor friendly, bass heavy and ultimately uplifting rework, before Uffe closes out the ep with an ode to the late 60's, "When The Sun Rose'. Wonderful cinematic and psychedelic sounds work brilliantly with its folky vocals to create an astonishing piece of music.
