HERCULES & LOVE AFFAIR
ruled by Butler’s encyclopaedic knowledge of 40 years of New York dance music, from disco to house & beyond to the DFA era, H&LA distils that knowledge into timeless grooves.
soulful, classic house-inspired vocals (whoever happens to be singing them) & that bittersweet, delicious nocturnal melancholy that all the best dance music has always tapped - the joy of dancing away a broken heart at 4am. Butler started Dj-ing when he was 15 & it’s in his blood. this is his 2nd commercial mix & he combines his historical knowledge of dance music with an approach that’s bang up to date, recontextualising classic tracks with disco that sounds like it’s been beamed in from the 22nd Century.
