Doss unveils ‘Puppy (Feel the Beat Mix)’ co-produced with Hudson Mohawke
New York icon Doss is set to release four new self-produced remixes of tracks from his EP 4 New Hit Songs. The new collection, titled 4 New Hit Songs * Remixes, is set to be released on October 26 via LuckyMe/Duet. Today, Doss debuts “Puppy (Feel The Beat Mix)”, co-produced with Hudson Mohawke, and officially releases the previously teased “Strawberry (Singin’ Club Mix)”.
“4 New Hit Songs was written in bedrooms; each song focused on the interior,” says Doss. “After having had the opportunity to play these songs in so many different spaces, in different landscapes and environments, I found myself revisiting them, making adjustments here and there, looking outward.”
“I like to think that all of my songs can evolve, change and adapt. I try to approach writing lyrics and vocals in a way that, to me, feels like sampling. It makes sense to recycle and rework my music and shape it for the spaces in which it is experienced.”
Produced by Doss with additional production from Hudson Mohawke and Plush (formerly Unicorn Kid), 4 new hit songs * Remixes developed from live edits Doss refined while touring with Yves Tumor and in movie heads sell-outs across the country.
This year she’ll play a series of headline dates with stops at Los Angeles’ Don Quixote on December 10 and New York’s Elsewhere Hall on December 16 – see full details below. Last year’s flagship project, 4 New Hit Songs, was named to Best of 2021 lists by The Guardian, NPR, Pitchfork, The FADER, Dazed, Stereogum, Nylon, Paste, Gorilla vs. Bear and more.
Raised in Texas and based in New York, Doss first appeared in 2014 on taste label Acephalé with an EP that Pitchfork called “an exploration of the pure joy of sensation.” In the years that followed, she made a name for herself as an underground fixture with major supporters among big-name artists.
SOPHIE, in particular, has been a frequent collaborator: they toured together in 2018 and teamed up for the legendary unreleased track “New York’s Burning Down” and a version of “Whole New World” on OIL OF EVERY PEARL’S UN- INSIDE NON-STOP ALBUM REMIX.
Lady Gaga – who teamed up with Doss in a revamp of ‘Enigma’ for her remix album Dawn of Chromatica – Grimes, Caroline Polachek, Porter Robinson and a number of others have championed her for years – no surprise for an artist who, through just a few releases, has won so many admirers. Although his personal life has always been a bit of a mystery, Doss’s visual identity, like his music, often evokes the playful maximalism of the early 2000s with both sincerity and humor.
