PURPLE-Coloured Vinyl Date: 03.02.2020
This one goes out to all you lovers out there... With their love of good house and techno brimming over with each release, every day is Valentine's Day at Pets HQ. So when Black Loops sent them '4 The Lovers' the label cats (and dogs) knew it would be a perfect fit for a debut. With its walking bassline, dreamy flurries and sultry spoken word, '4 The Lovers' melts the stoniest of hearts and sets the scene for the sweet soiree that follows... 'Where My Girls At' continues the racy theme as the Italians-in-Berlin who've been building a smouldering reputation for the last four years on labels such as Toy Tonics, Neovinyl and Gruuv lay down a persistent kickdrum smooth talk, thumping and bumping as the swooning filtered pads add layers of allure. 'Blomst', meanwhile flutters its come-to-bed eyes with hip-rattling percussive scratches, a plucked bouncy bassline and blushing chords that climax in style. Finally we find true romance with 'Soulsista'. The sonic soulmate you never knew you needed, its deep dubby bassline slinks and purrs over jacking Chicago-style beats and cosmic weaves, bubbles and vapour trails wisp and whirr somewhere above you on cloud nine. Four slices of pristine, pure positivity. We guarantee your own love of good house and techno will be brimming over by the time you've finished listening. Beautiful.
