Box of Cats Celebrates 100th Release with Pavement Special [LISTEN]


Box of Cats celebrates its 100th release with yet another infectious house track — “Gotta Get Away” from label bosses Wongo, Jeff Doubleu and Kyle Watson operating under their Pavement Special alias.

Established in 2016, Box of Cats has experienced one growing year after another, serving up a steady stream of quality productions that embrace weird within the house realm. When you hear those “cheeky, bass-heavy, rolling, glitchy, buzzy and wacky” productions, it’s likely to be Box of Cats behind the groove — and if there’s ever been a release that wholeheartedly amplifies the label in the best possible way, it’s this one.

The guys behind Box of Cats — Wongo, Jeff Doubleu, Jak Z, Kyle Watson, Tom EQ and Marc Spence — share the following of the track and cheers to 100 more:

Bringing in the warm bass of Kyle Watson, the vocal chops of Jeff Doubleu and the wonky synths of Wongo, ‘Gotta Get Away’ is built on inspiration from what it’s been like to run this label over the past 4 years. This track is classic BOC, and throws back to the roots of what we as individuals love about this genre.

Congrats to Box of Cats on BOC100!

Pavement Special – Gotta Get Away

Today we celebrate our 100th release. That’s right, 100!

100 releases by 191 separate artists, adding up to almost two straight days of beats – and all of this grew from a little Facebook chat between friends…

In 2016, over a warm glass of milk and a bowl of dry biscuits, a collection of warped individuals put their heads together to create an outlet for the house music they so admired. Not just any old house music though, oh no… The idea was to create a magical record label that would serve as a home for the weirder offshoots of traditional house music – the cheeky, bass-heavy, rolling, glitchy, buzzy and wacky house music. And just like that, after at least 7 minutes of intense deliberation, Box of Cats was born.

Through the process of all of this, Box of Cats has got to know almost 200 artists – artists we consider as our extended family. We have always prided ourselves on teaming up with artists of any size, as long as we get the chance to showcase world class house music on our label.

To celebrate this milestone the label heads have collaborated, forming a new boy-band called the PAVEMENT SPECIAL. The new name is South African slang for a ‘mixed-breed cat’. Kinda fitting when we all live in different countries yet come together under the same umbrella of house music.

Bringing in the warm bass of Kyle Watson, the vocal chops of Jeff Doubleu and the wonky synths of Wongo, ‘Gotta Get Away’ is built on inspiration from what it’s been like to run this label over the past 4 years. This track is classic BOC, and throws back to the roots of what we as individuals love about this genre.

We’re overwhelmed and elated at the same time, and want to thank EVERYONE for what you have helped us create. Not only a platform, but a community, a friendship, and an era that for us will go down as one of the most important things we’ve done in our lives.

Here’s to the next 100!
Cheers
Kyle, Matt, Jeff, Tom, Chris and Marc
