Brisker & Magitman - Butterfly EP

According to the hype sheet, the Butterfly EP is what you get if you take "the best Israeli progressive talent" and "lock them up in a techno lab." Well, that's one way of putting it. Another would be that this is yet another perfectly functional, if hardly life-changing, record from the house/techno border.

Butterfly comes in two mixes, the more proggy Original and the Weekend Warrior mix, which has a more stripped-down, slightly syncopated kinda feel. I'm preferring the latter, but of both you'd have to say that, they'll work on the dancefloor, sure, but can you really see anyone sticking 'em on YouTube in 10 years' time (or whatever the 2020 equivalent of YouTube will be) and going, "This is my favourite record ever"?

Cos I can't, TBH. Still, like I say, they'll work for now, for a range of jocks from tech-house to prog. So that's all right, then.

Out: This week

About: Brisker & Magitman are, as the press release is keen to point out, progressive housers from Israel, with releases on Twisted Frequency, Audiotherapy, Baroque and many more. Here's their MySpace and a full discography at The ’Scogs. This particular release comes atcha on Subsonic Music, who are based in a land down under and have a MySpace here and a website here, and who I gather are behind the Aussie dance music festival of the same name.
