Product description

Product Description

Andrew Butler emerged from making music for college-based dance projects into a fully-fledged recording artist, via the New York art scene. He hooked up with his friends from there, including Nomi, Kim Ann and Antony and Hercules & Love Affair is the result.

Antony rose to prominence when he won 2005's Mercury Music Prize and this is a major step into a new area... a disco-influenced mix of glamour and melancholy, happiness and clubbing that has sprung out of the mutual worlds of Andrew and Antony, Kim Ann and Nomi.

Nomi is a native New Yorker who met Andrew at one of Antony's performances years ago. She has performed with the likes of Debbie Harry and Cocorosie alongside longstanding recording collaborations with various NY DJs and hip hop artists. Her autobiographical debut album `Lost In Lust' has been compared to a cross between Wu-Tang Clan's RZA on beats and Sade on vocals. Here Nomi lends her voice to the seductive `You Belong'.

Brooklyn-based Kim Ann Foxman's career as acid-house DJ, jewellery designer and singer has its roots in the legendary San Francisco club scene of the early/mid-nineties. Shortly after her move to NYC, she started throwing dance music/art parties and gave Andrew his first residency that lasted 3 years. He in turn provided her with her first pair of turntables, which led her to start DJ'ing. They have been regular collaborators ever since, engaging in art activities of all sorts and seeing her become part of NYC's nightlife glitterati with a distinct vocal style. Check out 'Athene' to hear her in full swing...

Hercules & Love Affair is 2008's most exciting dancefloor concoction, an arthouse vision of pure pop by way of futuristic electronica and classic dance music, where beautiful, bruising harmonies and tensile rhythms collide in resurgent soundscapes and emotive disco workouts.

The album is co-produced by Andrew Butler with Tim Goldsworthy of DFA at Plantain Studios in the midst of Manhattan, New York City.

Review

"A gorgeously burnished fusion of three decades of classic dance music, from disco to house, acid to synth pop, Derrick May to Giorgio Moroder" -- Mojo

"Brilliant...if Ziggy Stardust made house music, it would sound like this." -- Vogue

"Classic Chicago house with a modern-day New York vibe" -- The Sun

"all the sparkle and naughtiness that made disco oh-so-special" -- NME

"beautiful harmonies, incisive lyrics, and grown up grooves. BYO mirror ball." -- Sunday Times
