Butane – Fashion Victim EP – Extrasketch

F**k is it September already. Never mind, music such as the sounds espoused by Butane keep matters hot and steamy throughout the meantime. Five tracks adorn this latest collection with each supplying their own particular brand of delicious rhythms and moods. I might be the heady, shuffling percussive rush of Sacrifice that garbs your attention first as you inhale the smouldering, smoky vocal. Or perhaps the invigorating succession of chiming notes which infuse the opening Walk, or maybe it’s the grainy collaboration of drums plus brutal bass occupying the inescapable Hoodwinked which may steal you. But whatever it may be, each of these neatly crafted pieces slice and dice up moments of blissful intensity in excess, all detly commanding your attention.

Release: September 9

Butane – Sketch Factor EP – Extrasketch

A beautifully realised, brutally executed set of music from Andrew Rasse aka Butane who fires off his second release for his own label. Starting with, Don’t Stop and its punctuating, nagging synth hits which are aided and abetted by a cool succession of hot drums plus low-slung attitude all the way down on this excellent track. The superbly titled, Minimum Wage follows seizing the opportunity to pummel you with thumping beats subtly offset by a flourish of melodic keys adding warmth and texture. Go, then leans in on a tougher direction with unnerving bass commanding the scene, while Ultramax ends via twisted electronics served over yet more devastating beats.

Release: October 16 (Vinyl) / November 10 (Digital)
