Applebottom – Young Money (Original Mix)
The announcement of a global partnership with Sony signalled a significant change of pace for Black Butter Records – the indie force behind Gorgon City, Kidnap Kid and a wealth of next generation talents. Their sites now fall on London prospect Applebottom to kick start 2015, debuting with his own unique vision for the way house music should be stirring things up for the year to come.
“Young Money” is the ultimate antidote to the wave of mediocre low-end house currently dominating the digital market. A dark underground cut bent on upping the tempo and eliminating the cookie-cutter schematics, there is a sense that the label is treating major label affiliation as a prospect for mass dissemination of an essential statement: you can keep a market guessing with the most subtle yet sincere of gestures. There aren’t many records that balance the ungroomed adrenaline and functionality found in “Young Money” out there right now, making Applebottom’s latest the first signs of a potentially welcome shift in focus for the UK market.
Release Date: February 9
