H&LA main man Andy Butler will release his first commercial mix CD for Renaissance in July.
Hercules & Love Affair have been selected by Renaissance to kick off their new Sidetracked mix series.
The new series will see Renaissance widen their remit more than ever before, with head honcho Geoff Oakes explaining that "Sidetracked has been developed to show the other side of bands from the electronic genre who can, and do, DJ. It's an opportunity to offer a diverse, unique series, which makes Hercules & Love Affair the more than perfect choice to kick-start matters." Even though band member Kim Ann Foxman also DJs, it's down to H&LA main man Andy Butler to construct the mix solo, but Foxman does however make a cheeky vocal inclusion, inciting Butler to "play some old disco." Butler doesn't play many new tracks in the mix, which focuses on classic house and disco, but there is room for one new Hercules & Love Affair track ("I Can't Wait") to make the cut. As well as the single disc mix, the package will also come with an unmixed CD featuring remastered versions of eleven of Butler's selections, which should come in handy for digital DJs looking for some classic '90s house.
