Josh Butler’s not the sort of guy to follow every new fad in house music, but he always manages to sound contemporary and uplifting both with his DJ-sets and productions. His ‘Feelings EP’ is another prime example of the Josh Butler sound: timeless high quality and high energy house music that’s inspired both by classic New York house and the more sophisticated side of UK garage.
The award winning DJ/producer, who’s currently touring with fellow rising star Bontan and finishing his highly anticipated debut album, opens his first EP for Noir Music with the strong ‘Feelings & Meanings’. that was already featured on his House Cult Podcast and has become a staple in his highly energetic sets. A steady dancefloor groover that sets the mood perfectly until an infectious acid line comes rushing in.
`Keep on Coming´ follows in a similar vein, this time powered by a vocal sample and warm chord stabs, but things get really heated up on the hypnotically swirling ´Inside´, one of the undisputed highlights of the EP. ´Empty Space´is a trippy track that can work any early morning crowd into a frenzy. Additional sunrise not included. We can´t wait for that debut album to come out.
´Feelings´is out on March 30.
