Track Tuesday: Ketiov Edits 01
Ketiov is a solo project of Voitek Taranczuk. You may know him better as one half of the Polish duo Catz ‘n Dogz and part owner of the prolific Pets Recordings. Voitek’s skilled ear and deep experience comes through clearly on this vinyl-only release, his first collection of edits on the label also bearing the Ketiov name. Samir, Tumblack and Akira are each percussion-forward tracks. They will quickly find a home in most record bags thanks to their sheer dance floor versatility. Samir stands out as our favorite, its growling saxophone ushered along by big, bumping drums that seem to teeter just on the edge of out-of-control. The cherry on top is Music, Ketiov’s edit of the classic Dance the Body Music by Osibisa. A warm and uplifting disco edit, it has us dreaming of summer parties on the sea, a welcome vision during this cold January.
