arnold & lane – gas then dip ep (box of cats)

Last Friday, Southern California based duo Arnold & Lane dropped their freshman release on Box of Cats. The 3 track EP titled ‘Gas then Dip’ is one of their biggest releases to date. They have a very unique flavor of house & techno and have one of the prominent artists on the rise for the last couple years. They played one of our RESET after hour parties last year and absolutely crushed in. Arnold & Lane continue to push limits & boundaries with each new release. You definitely want to go out & support this release. More from Box of Cats below.

“Two lads living the dream – writing beats, playing shows and partying with fans. The lid was literally about to pop before the mighty Rona virus kicked in and changed everyone’s plans. With their own unique twist on clubby techno with original vocals, Arnold & Lane are set to have a very strong year regardless of what tricks the virus has up its nasty sleeves. Once the gates open and we’re set free upon the dancefloor, we’re willing to bet our furry paws that you’ll be seeing these guys on all kinds of festival stages across the US.

Now that we’ve buttered the duo’s bread with our sweet praises, let’s get to the music. The title track One Button is an absolute chugger, filled out with a groovy 303 while a robotic voice takes you through the paces. Gas Then Dip and Baby Baby Baby (very important to say it all 3 times) take you to the darker side of the duo’s taste. 808s, 90s vocal chops and unforgettable vocal hooks are the name of the game here.

This is Arnold & Lane’s first solo release on Box of Cats, and what a way to welcome them to the family. Enjoy Gas Then Dip EP!”

The Cut: More Meat, Less Fat

The Cut: More meat, Less Fat

There are many tracks out there that are hidden by the fat of less delicious tracks. As a part-time butcher of music discovery(and meat in real life), I will cut out the fat and show you the freshest cuts of meat (tracks) in this new segment we call “The Cut”. We will feature all kinds of cuts ranging from Bass, House, and downtempo vibes. 


The first track on our list is a remix by Calvin Harris and features a Deep House element that makes this cut a funky and bouncy track. The deep bassline really guides the track along and makes for an awesome House track.

This next track is a release on Medium Rare Recordings (kinda fitting for this article) and the track is just filthy and heavy. Its on some dark house vibes with heavy bass synths and intricate percussions all mixed in.

Another aggressive song with house elements and electro vibes.

Yookie really killing it with the music and this latest track is like something from a horror movie. Really nostalgic bass sounds similar to the dubstep duo 16BIT from back in the golden dubstep days.

Ok, so mostly everything is bass driven in this article, but thats fine because this Future Bass track gives you some next level bass waves and synths that compliment this remix of Post Malones I fall Apart
