Hercules & Love Affair Get Sidetracked

Hercules’, aka Andy Butler, self-titled album on DFA wowed critics and music fans across the board in 2008 with tracks such as ‘Blind’ and ‘You Belong’. Members also include Nomi Ruiz, Kim Ann Foxman and Antony Hegarty (lead vocalist in Antony & The Johnsons). Their soulful blend of disco-inspired songs provided the perfect soundtrack to summer. A year on, "Sidetracked" arrives just in time for those demanding a similar musical fix…

Andy honed his craft DJing at various underground parties in New York, so returning to the decks was a very natural step for him. He’s used the comp’ to showcase a broad sweep of classic house and disco, plus a brand new Hercules’ exclusive. Says Andy, “I am excited by this compilation to realize two ends: it’s a slamming mix with tracks that have historically made me freak out in the club, along with new productions - including my Hercules & Love Affair exclusive.”

The compilation will come as a 2-disc set: mixed and specially re-mastered unmixed format
