Club Focus is invariably on our list of things to make your Tuesday night 10 times better than it normally is– especially for househeads, members of the trance family and other beat freak pedigrees. But next week's event on Oct. 2 definitely deserves a big red circle on your calendar thanks to Berlin duo Catz 'N Dogz. In the last 12 months, few house duos have experienced the kind of profile boost that comes with being remixed by stars like Carl Craig and Tanner Ross. When it comes to their own tracks from their 2011 sophomore album Escape From the Zoo, their left-field approach to dance music invokes cinematic film scores, raw instrumentation, deep house roots, crunk Lil' Jon samples and whole lot in between.
The duo (their consonant-heavy real names: Grzegorz Demianczuk and Wojciech Taranczuk), are in the middle of a packed fall season filled with US and European dates. Next week the descend on Tapas in Newport Beach to hit this marquee club event with laptops blazing. We're looking forward to hearing there hypnotic beats rain over the crowd like, well, you know. We've got TWO pairs of free tickets to give away for the party. Find out how to win them after the jump.
