"Edging" will come out on the Hercules & Love Affair man's Mr. Intl label next week.
It's been a year of milestones for Butler—who you probably better know as the man behind Hercules & Love Affair—after he made his solo production debut back in February. This new EP also comes via his Mr. Intl imprint, and it marks the first track from Hexxy, Butler's latest endeavour, which he discussed in his recent RA Exchange.
Hexxy sees Butler working with Nark, AKA Seattle DJ and promoter Kevin Kauer (who also made his own production debut this year). "On a recent tour of Europe Kevin made a pitstop in Brussels and I invited him into the studio," Butler explains. "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."
The flipside is an Andy Butler solo tune. You can hear clips of both at the Above Board distribution website, and listen to Butler's RA Exchange below.
