Freebie Friday: Butch – From Above

Butch Live

Butch is an artist that needs little introduction. As a person he is lighthearted and comical, and when it comes down to the music his passion for life is evident. In preparation for his set tomorrow night at Minimal Effort, we’ve gone back into his archives and dug up a free download that he released from Area Remote Records two years ago.

Butch n Virginia’s From Above is a slick piece of emotive grooves and sonic subtleties that is perfect for the coming months. This particular track was out on Area Remote, but Butch has his catalog spread-out through a variety of labels such as Watergate, Bouq, Desolat, Cécille, and Cocoon, to name a few. From his releases to world tours, Butch consistently spreads positive vibes and music to everyone he encounters. Tomorrow night will be no exception.

Enjoy the free download of From Above, and make sure to catch him in Los Angeles tomorrow night at Minimal Effort.
