ORIGINS RCRDS unveils a brand-new series this March entitled ‘This Is ORIGINS’ as label boss Josh Butler welcomes Demuir, Flashmob, Michel de Hey and JPA for Volume 1.

Founded in late-2016, Josh Butler’s ORIGINS RCRDS imprint continues to go from strength to strength as one of house music’s most consistent and impressive growing labels, welcoming the likes of Kerri Chandler, Groove Armada and Richy Ahmed through to rising talents including ANOTR, Ben Rau and Dennis Quin across the catalogue to date. Having closed the year with the debut of Butler’s own Timezones series, early 2020 will also welcome a second new addition to the label’s output as we see the launch of a new various artist series entitled ‘This Is ORIGINS’, with the first instalment welcoming a debut collaboration between Demuir and Butler himself, plus three label debuts from Flashmob, Michel de Hey and JPA.

Butler kicks things off alongside rising Toronto talent Demuir as they deliver the slick ‘Tropicana’, a slinking house cut guided by blossoming melodies, bumping bass licks and icy hats throughout. Next, Flashmob delivers the first of three label debuts with ‘The Island’, a driving production armed with crisp snares and distorted vocal snippets, whilst Michael de Hey’s lively ‘Garyamoi’ sees the introduction of rich chord stabs atop of rolling organic percussion to great effect. To close, rising Melbourne talent JPA reveals his contribution ‘Here Now’ – a dubby closer fusing bright synth lines and further resonant vocals to wrap things up in impressive fashion.
