The Martinez Brothers Cuttin’ Headz returns with a new EP from The Butcha, entitled ‘10001’ and backed with two remixes from Matrixxman.
Phil Moffa aka The Butcha is a New York City based musician, producer and engineer most notably known for his works alongside DJ Spider and Anthony Parasole for Sublevel Sounds / Plan B Recordings and alongside Seth Troxler for Hypercolour. Here we see him return to the fledgling Cuttin’ Headz imprint with his idiosyncratic take on raw, emotive house music following his Destination Void release alongside DJ Spider and Brendon Moeller last year.
Up first are two originals from The Butcha, the first of which ’99 Prince St.’ lays focus on echoing atmospherics, snaking Rhodes and shuffling dubbed out percussion while the latter, ‘6 Hubert St.’ pivots towards an amalgamation an upfront organic rhythm alongside a weighty low end drive and wandering synth swells.
To complete the package San Francisco’s Matrixxman delivers two interpretations, firstly the ‘Acidized Mix’ which as the name would suggest draws on squelching 303 lines layered over processed snippets from the original before the digital bonus ‘Transhuman Mix’ closes on an arpeggio fuelled Techno tip.
The Butcha’s ‘10001’ is out on Cuttin’ Headz 23rd September 2016.
