January signals the arrival of Butanes seventh release on his Extrasketch imprint, with a fresh three track offering entitled Unchained opening 2019 with authority. When describing Andrew Rasse, aka Butane, one may find it difficult to complete a paragraph without including the words consistent and quality. Considering that these two descriptors can be applied across not only his extremely proficient studio output, but also his ability within the booth as a technical and prolific DJ, and an extremely successful A&R that has been in the drivers seat of some of the worlds most respected labels for over a decade, and its easy to see why Rasses praises are regularly sung by high profile artists such as Seth Troxler, Jamie Jones and Adam Beyer. Now firmly into its second year of operation, Rasse unveils another quality three track offering on his burgeoning self-described vanity imprint Extrasketch as he opens up 2019 in fine fashion. Rasse opens the package strongly with Hubris, a heavy medley of crisp tribal drum loops, hypnotic, hooky synths, and tripped-out vocal murmurs that combine skillfully to guarantee the production will find only the hottest dancefloors. Next, Chained brings a slightly brighter aesthetic, employing a subtle vocal hook amongst a grinding, cyclical, machine-like groove. Organic drum shots fill in the negative spaces, and the track retains a firm foundation amidst a winding, woozy bassline. Lastly, Nemesis sees Rasse switch things up, opting for a more stripped-down vibe. Crisp percussion licks layered over an infectious, brooding bassline and resonant stabs to reveal yet another trademark B side oozing with quality. Three more essential Butane cuts delivered for your record bag.
