The Barking Dogs – Your High feat. Tom Trago (12″)

Cat#: Gomma 176
Release: 16 November 2012

Milanese duo The Barking Dogs return to the Gomma label for a superb new single featuring Rush Hour’s Tom Trago and Young Marco and a remix from the ever-excellent Analogue Cops. Warm bass, heavily delayed claps and skittering percussion work around subtle vocal edits, abstract piano chords and sonic sweeps to wonderful effect and create a record that has a truly unique feel. The original is backed up with a remix from Italy’s The Analogue Cops who create a mix that is a wonderful fusion of live elements and techno sensibilities, sublime stuff.
