STREAM: JOSH BUTLER & HAUSWERKS ‘THE HORN’ EP
As a follow up to his ‘Wanna Say’ EP last October, Josh Butler returns to Mihalis Safras’ label in style, this time armed with collaborator and longtime friend Hauswerks. Kicking off with a percussion-laden groove, opener ‘The Horn’ brings cavernous hits and low-end sub-work to the foreground. A reverberating soulful vocal permeates through the track and contributes to an insatiable energy. Meanwhile flip-side ‘The Hottest Sound’ brings an old-school feel with a manipulated female vocal interspersed with that trademark minimal Butler sound. The connection between Hauswerks and Josh is clear, as both donate their strengths to the EP, with melodic and percussive coming together in real a tour de force. The rolling ‘Time Creeper’ rounds off the EP, filled with intricate drum work, rolling snares and a shuffling lead that will seriously get clubgoers moving.
Midway through a 13-date residency at Sankeys Ibiza, and having performed everywhere and anywhere in between, Josh Butler has had a sterling summer. Continuing to keep his release schedule packed as well as blasting out his bi-weekly Pioneer DJ Radio show ‘Somatic’, Josh resumes to stamp his mark the house scene.
