Like Andrew Butler's Sidetracked mix for the Renaissance label, the Hercules & Love Affair leader's addition to !K7's DJ-Kicks series is a 14-track set that spans a few decades and contains selections from heroes, contemporaries, collaborators, and himself. This one doesn't range quite as far back - the earliest cuts are from the late '80s, rather than the late '70s and early '80s - so it's a little more fluid in sound.

Nu-disco god Andy Butler and his Hercules and Love Affair project have been blowing our minds for years now. With the self-titled, Butler cultivated a disco masterpiece, full of slow burn and tainted love that needed to be danced to. Then, with last year's excellent Blue Songs, he moved in a slightly more house driven direction and gave us club bangers one after another. So now, it's only right that Butler gets to join the list of great DJs on the already phenomenal DJ-Kicks roster. And naturally, on his contribution, Butler holds no punches back. The vinyl version is shipping shortly, with a shorter tracklist, focusing more heavily on the exclusive tracks.
The same applies to Hercules & Love Affair's DJ Kicks set, which ranges from proto house, through New York's golden years in the '90s, to Chicago jack tracks and modern takes on house music's halcyon days. It's a mix that includes a lot of old music, but it's not outmoded. It's there for a reason. It's fun to remind myself why I like old records," says Butler. I'm naturally drawn to a more classic sound . Includes unlimited streaming via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more. Purchasable with gift card.
