Release date: 04.12.2020
Butter Sessions tees up a flawless duo, Naarm (Melbourne) based artistsMousse(Simon Barry) andTrevor(James Vinciguerra) for a split 7" release with a screen-printed sleeve. Both artists add the release to their highly-regarded archives. On the A-Side,MoussesubmitsNorthstar. This is hissecond contribution toButter Sessions; arobust follow up to his funky explorations showcased on theBungalow Classics12".On the flipside,Trevorfollows up his 2019Becoming a BedLP(Alter)with the astuteDarron.
As one can expect,Mousse's Northstar is soaked in infectious house sequencing and sci-fi hypnobeat, while laced with dialogue extracted from the 1986 anime filmFist of the Northstar. The B-Side trackDarron sees visual artistTrevor jumping from his contribution to the record sleeve into the record itself. The piece emits glitchy electro bound in coarse breaks but with just the right amount of room to breathe. As two punchy aligned compositions, this split release introduces a powerful pairing.
