DESCRIPTION

mr.intl present a tasty two tracker from Andy Butler, as he’s joined by Seattle’s DJ Nark for the debut of their Hexxy project, and runs solo on the flip with the mighty ‘Bewm Chawqk’.

“This is a new project between myself and party maker, DJ Nark AKA Kevin Kauer, founder of Bottom Forty and Nark Magazine,’ explains Andy Butler. ‘On a recent tour of Europe Kevin made a pitstop in Brussels and I invited him into the studio. We share an unpredictability in our DJ sets, so we wanted to make a crossover track for DJs who aren’t afraid to play disco in a set were techno can sit just as comfortably, taking conceptual cues from rough and hypnotic edits from masters like Ron Hardy. Meanwhile the flip is a fun take on acid disco with some samples that were on favorite records of mine in my teenage days.”

Andy Butler’s mr.intl label is a home for ‘personality' dance music from artists he meets on his world travels, and serves as a creative outlet for outside of his life in the pioneering Hercules & Love Affair project. Following the band’s third album, 'The Feast of the Broken Heart' released to global critical acclaim last year, and Andy’s solo singles ‘You Can Shine’ and ‘Soldier’ (with Ha-ze Factory), Hercules & Love Affair have also recently remixed the single ‘Evil Eyes’ by Roisin Murphy, toured the States and are currently working on a new fourth studio album.
