12" Vinyl UK
Limited vinyl release, including an original manga, made in tribute to Katsuhiro Otomo.
A huge landmark year for Nathan Micay so far, momentum in 2019 continues apace with ‘Butterfly Arcane’. This new EP follows swiftly on from the smash album ‘Blue Spring’, which was critically acclaimed and fervidly supported by a wide selection of world class DJs. “Musically the EP contains explorations for the dancefloor with weird-ass melodic structures that stem from the same sound pallet as ‘Blue Spring’” says Nathan. ‘I'm Your Huckleberry’ is a surging flood of serotonin rush, with captivating proggy peaks and troughs akin to classic era Underworld and Leftfield, but with inventive new twists. The melodic and breakbeat-driven ‘This'll Tell The Tale’ evokes a 6am lazer vortex, whilst ‘Did U Know I Cannot Die’ is part DJ tool and part crystalline ambience that floats somewhere between Tangerine Dream and Vangelis. Already a massive worldwide anthem, ‘The Party We Could Have Had’ epitomises Micay’s ability to breathe new life info the early/mid 90s purple patch where prog, trance, electronica and techno blurred beautifully together. The EP offers all those fans who weren’t able to grab Micay’s now highly-sought-after Manga inspired comic that came with the special edition of the album another chance, as an updated version will be available with this release, with an added foreword by music theorist/technologist and Holly Herndon collaborator Mat Dryhurst.
