Honey Butter Records is a new imprint straight outta Sweden, headed up by Malmö-based artist Sune and his good friend Vitamin D, both of whom graced that stunning Secret Listen record late last year.
These guys really hit the ground running with their debut release - a solid V/A stuffed with funk-laden tracks from the likes of Ari Bald and Sable Blanc. When your first record is so hard to beat then, who better to bring in for the second than Rose Records label head and firm Sleazy Beats favourite M.Ono.
It may be a wet and windy winters day here in London but the three tracks that make up the 'Peanut Butter Lover' EP are transporting me straight to summer. None more so than the title track on the A1 which, with it's punchy bassline, classic piano riff and rousing synths, is a slow-burning 7 minutes of uplifting house music bliss. Feast your ears:
So far, Honey Butter haven't put a foot wrong and, if they carry on as they are, I think we've got plenty to look forward to from them in 2018.
