CONVENIENCE EP (BUTANE REMIX)
12" Vinyl US
Butanes Alphahouse imprint kicks off 2015 with Pablo Inzunzas ‘Convenience’ EP, featuring three original cuts from the Chilean artist and a remix from the label-founder himself.
Pablo Inzunza is a Chilean DJ and producer most notably known for his recent long player on Butane & Someone Else’s Little Helpers imprint, but also acknowledged for material on Germany’s Highgrade, and French imprint Monique Musique. Inzunza has explored an array of organic and abstract Techno styles across the early stages of his career and here we see him push on with more powerful dance floor focused cuts via the Alphahouse imprint. The original mix of title cut ‘Convenience’ opens things up here and sees Inzunza employ a hypnotic 303 hook as the driving force, while ghostly synth textures flutter away in the depths of the composition and sparse rhythms further fuel its undulating groove. ‘Hypnotica’ follows and as the name would suggest lays its focus on an entrancing, percussion and pad-led groove, which subtly unfolds over its five and a half minute duration. Opening up the flip side of the release label-head Butane offers up a tougher, heads down take on ‘Convenience’, treating us to his typically rough and ready production style with gritty drum lines laid over the original’s squelchy 303 lick. Then finally to round things off we have the third and final original from Pablo entitled ‘Intimate’, which takes on a more house tinged aesthetic this time with organic percussion, sweeping synth stabs and stuttering bass tones.
