As we enter the second half of 2019, Extrasketch boss Butane is certainly showing no signs of slowing following potentially his most active and proficient year to date, with remixes, collaborations, and original material via a slew of imprints including Deeperfect, SCI+TEC, Moan and Tenampa Recordings alongside his own Little Helpers and Extrasketch imprints. Following up from the release of EX10 which saw the San Francisco based talent drop a near albums worth of quality, heady House material, here we see five fresh cuts of a more Techno variety, set for release in September as he offers up his Fashion Victim EP.
Walk opens the EP with authority as commanding kicks and eerie lead synths meet tripped out vocals, whilst the slick Assimilate offers up an infectious, stripped back groove at its core that guides listeners through crisp drum shots and resonant stabs. Next, Sacrifice showcases haunting melodies amongst darker, more sinister vocal snippets to form a hypnotic and evocative middle production, before taking things slightly more off-kilter and clubby with the warping and razor sharp Hoodwinked. Last up, final production Work It closes proceedings in impressive fashion as crisp organic drum arrangements meet rich deep bass tones and a bubbling low-end groove to offer up yet another essential Butane offering on home turf.
