Butane ‘Little Helper 250-3’
Today, Little Helpers will mark a huge milestone with its 250th release, a storming six-track […]
Since launching in 2009, Little Helpers has been home to groove-led digital productions from artists such as, among others, Ryan Crosson, Mark Henning, Flashmob, Andras Toth, Andrew Grant, and Re-UP. Like the locked grooves on vinyl, Little Helper’s release are built for DJs to loop, layer, and edit; all the while holding their own as standalone tracks.
The simply titled Little Helpers 250 will feature two collaborative tracks alongside two individual outings from Butane and Someone Else. Like most of the label’s catalog, each of the tracks on Little Helpers 250 sits in the dubby nether regions between house and techno—bass-heavy cuts for the heads.
To celebrate the release, Butane has offered up the first of his two individual cuts, “Little Helper 250-3,” as today’s XLR8R download. The track focuses on a rolling 808 groove, with dubby synth stabs and ominous vocal chops thrown in for good measure. The quality of the production is a testament to Butane’s experience and, like all Little Helpers’ releases, begs to be played on a huge soundsystem.
