BUTTER SESSIONS

Following a joint live performance in 2016, Butter Sessions present the latest collaborative effort from Albrecht La'Brooy (Analogue Attic) & Sleep D (Butter Sessions).

This EP sees AL & SD blend their respective styles in a stimulating way.
From 50 begins the EP with steady 909 grooves and a subtle oscillating acid bass that builds into another dimension.
Hotham breaks the pace with atmospheric space leads looking down on a mountain of kick drums.
Banksia is the most psychedelic of the four, planting seeds of heavily resonating synths atop of floating drum rhythms and warm melodies.
Lastly, Sleeping Patterns takes it down a few notches into a daydream of flute-like synths and distant nostalgic vocals.




Debut EP from Australia's Turner Street Sound. Comprised of Firecracker signing, Rings Around Saturn (aka Rory McPoke) and MidnightTenderness (aka Ryan Hunter), "Bunsens Vol. One" sees the duo's work from 2014 - 2017 presented in concise form. "Mood Lamp" is futuristic nu-boogie exemplified. Crashing gated drums, cerebral keyboards and swirling pads make this a slice of hardware powered funk that Dam Funk or Turquoise Summers wish they'd wrote.. but it's 100% TSS - nice! "Dunes (Oceanic Mix)" flips for some upfront breakbeat house business, taking cues from the exceptional Bufiman & Normal 4 out last year on Aiwo and sounding just as tasty - do not sleep on this bad boy! Plenty more to get stuck into but "Glasshouse" is also worth a mention with its glacial keyboard work and sparse, peppered electro beat; so very 2018 without being stylistically contrived or false. Also worth note if Midnight T's 'Broke Bones Dub' of "Stoned Mix" - which takes the hazy breakbeat theme even further into retroist jungle territory; but still smothered in a pillow-soft, blue sky dreaminess. So good! 

STAFF COMMENTS

Matt says: Wacked-out futurism here from TSS, Midnight T and Sleep D. A panoramic glimpse into what makes these upfront producers tick.

Sleep D with more of their thick and wobbly ™ sound straight outta The Jackal Studios, Melbourne. "Red Rock (IV Mix)" kicks off the release, a mid-tempo mover originally performed live at Inner Varnika 2017, re-imagined in the studio and taking you back to the alien-like surrounds of rural Victorian landscape Bookaar. "Bunyip Beat" reinforces the mood, forcing your mind to explore the flow of the odd-ball rhythm and pitch bent bleeps. Flip it over and you have almost 8 minutes of hypnotic aural madness on "Sandman", a stylish finisher for the outdoor stages and a classy ending to this wonderful EP. 

Sleep D

Space Pillow / Confusion

From the depths of the Jackal's den, or if you like, Melbourne Australia; Butter Sessions' label boss Sleep D emerges with two new deep techno cuts - on super secretive, screen printed 7" no less! Sequenced, manufactured & hand-printed in the suburbs of Melbourne, this locally made 7 inch features tracks "Space Pillow" and "Confusion". The former, wonderfully titled, is a deep analogous trip into rippling mind music. I can't help think this would be ace music to drop acid too - there's so much going on in the recesses of the mix that you're head would just go into overdrive! Really, really strong track from one of the new pioneers of the scene. "Confusion" graces the flip, another heady track for lysergic lovers, you can almost hear the electricity crackling through the circuits on the this one! Storming stuff and although you'll be cursing him when you're trying to mix a seven at 4am in a dimly-lit nightclub, Sleep D's delivered an artistically strong package here.... if you're into that sorta thing.
