Alphahouse supremo Butane is back and about to release his Preacher Man EP, both digitally and with a limited vinyl run, and its house grooves have already been attracting the attention of the likes of (amongst others) Adam Beyer, Sidney Charles, Santé, Leon and Andrea Oliva.
The EP opens with Dancefloor Bretheren opens, its filtered hats and pads driving something altogether more circumspect – little organ malodies appearing out of the electronic ether, like shards of morning sunlight. The repetitive fragments merely make it seem blissed out as it grows and allows splashes of percussion to creep over it.
Follow on Call and Response is a more arid affair, none of the splashes and swathes of sound of its predecessor. It’s altogether a more techno driven track that ebbs and flows with the changes in the percussion, with snatches of background noise cut in for effect here and there. The third and final track False Profit is darker, eerier affair which punches out its beats and sprays metallic sound effects liberally all over them, and we finally hear the preacher man of the title.

The Pracher Man EP is out on June 6th via Alphahouse.
