Butane opens 2018 with another limited vinyl run release on his Extrasketch imprint in the form of his 'Techno Mafia' EP, featuring four impressive and diverse cuts.

With his new Extrasketch imprint now firmly established and fast becoming a key stop for the likes of Adam Beyer, Jamie Jones, Art Department, Danny Tenaglia and more, Andrew Rasse aka Butane's new home for self-released productions has once again confirmed his prowess both in the studio and from behind the scenes as a curator of quality underground House and Techno. The third installment sees Rasse's most varied release on the imprint to date, with a balanced blend of elaborate melodies, groovy percussion and trademark hooky vocals across four tracks for his 'Techno Mafia' EP.

Opening the A-Side, 'Losing Their Mind' draws on familiar aesthetics as organic drum shots work alongside tripped out vocals to form an oddly hypnotic, syncopated rhythm that locks the dancers onto the floor. Next up, 'Above the Scene' strips things back a bit, as Rasse lays down punchy drums underneath glistening hats and warm chords to reveal an excellent heads down, hands up, sunny after hours jam.

On the flip, 'Testify' raises the energy levels as Rasse deftly utilises a rolling, floor-friendly bass groove and filtered vocals to steadily build tension for the track's duration. Closing the EP in fine style, a slick ever-evolving piano melody works fluently amongst crisp, regimented percussion, whilst an uplifting voice beckons the people to 'Rise Up'. Yet another indispensable release to add to Rasse's extensive and sophisticated catalogue.
