honey butter heartily welcomes the very talented duo rhode & brown, known for their outings on toy tonics, rose records, lets play house and of course on their own slam city jams to join the family rooster. on this side sits the collaborated number women together with coeo, in which you get 2 sides of the story, one for some serious sing along and the latter for stomping it out in an orderly fashion. that side will continue to showcase their love for heavy disco affairs and infectious hooks in the heat & lazy disco loop (but i ll dance anyway) all the while putting the cherry on the sundae in the title track langusto dance orchestra
the young manchester lad and family member swales returns to the land of honey butter to deliver his debut ep night cuisine. this four tracker is filled with dusty feel good sample flips in a true swales manner, ready to set summer nights in motion. this side is best described as a love story where lushness meets stomp, while that side effortlessly roles the top back down and takes on a more laid back approach to that deep disco sound.
on their second 12-, the honey butter crew prove themselves to be experts in the arts of mellifluous house jams, just like their name suggests. leipzig s m.ono has previously been spotted on rose records, heist and nite grooves amongst others, and sounds in fine fettle on this smooth sailing 12- of feel good house jams. -peanut butter lover- has it all - dreamy pads, throbbing bassline, lingering piano. -bummi- meanwhile aims for a clubbier feel offset by chirpy vibraphone notes, and then -made in montana- rounds the ep off with some deft keys and an overall deep atmosphere.
honey butter launches in a flurry of feel good deep house from lesser known producers with a keen ear for straight up groovers. swales kicks the record off with the melancholic tones of pushin away, while ari bald sidles in with the wistful sample chops of hot 2 cold. sabie blanc takes things to even dreamier heights on the b-side with the harp-embellished romanticism of musique d ascenseur, and then eben rees finishes the party off with some seriously funky licks on dirty dishes. all in all, it s a formidable salvo of likeminded deep house jams that should work its way into the bags of all manner of soulfully-minded spinners.
