Butane and Riko Forinson reunite on Extrasketch for two transportive cuts across ‘This & That’.
Supernatural collaborators and partners-in-music, American multiple-label founder Butane and Italian DJ/producer Riko Forinson’s innate connection when it comes to creating music has seen the pair deliver release after release loaded with quality from across the house spectrum – whether veering into more musical and minimal spheres, or towards heavier techno-leaning territory. Marking their first collaborative release of 2023 on their home label Extrasketch, late March’s ‘This & That’ EP is a deep dive into the world of mesmerising, psychedelic deep house music.
Building on undulating, dubby chords and ever-building tension, a hazy flute and crisp organic drums carry ‘Things Like This’ forward to reveal an entrancing eight-and-a-half minute journey through dreamlike soundscapes, made for late-night moments and early sunrises. ‘Things Like That’ continues on a similar boundary-pushing path, inducing dancefloor hypnosis with tight drum licks and well-placed pizzicato synth work. Showcasing the duo’s ability to create a diverse and immersive listening experience, ‘This & That’ is a journey into the mind-bending world of Butane and Riko Forinson.
