Mousse / Trevor - Northstar / Darron
Butter Sessions tees up a flawless duo, Naarm (Melbourne) based artists Mousse (Simon Barry) and Trevor (James Vinciguerra) for a split 7” release with a screen-printed sleeve. Both artists add the release to their highly-regarded archives. On the A-Side, Mousse submits Northstar. This is his second contribution to Butter Sessions; a robust follow up to his funky explorations showcased on the Bungalow Classics 12”. On the flipside, Trevor follows up his 2019 Becoming a Bed LP (Alter) with the astute Darron.

As one can expect, Mousse’s Northstar is soaked in infectious house sequencing and sci-fi hypnobeat, while laced with dialogue extracted from the 1986 anime film Fist of the Northstar. The B-Side track Darron sees visual artist Trevor jumping from his contribution to the record sleeve into the record itself. The piece emits glitchy electro bound in coarse breaks but with just the right amount of room to breathe. As two punchy aligned compositions, this split release introduces a powerful pairing.
