Hercules & Love Affair Takeover

Hercules and Love Affair bring their brand of uplifting house and disco to the 6 Music airwaves. The brainchild of New York DJ and producer Andy Butler, Hercules set tongues wagging three years ago with the release of their disco infused debut on James Murphy's DFA Recordings. Its stand out track, Blind - featuring the vocals of Mercury Award winner Anthony Hegarty - became an underground hit, with a remix by legendary producer Frankie Knuckles setting the blogs alight. Since then Butler has toured all over the world, worked with musical hero August Darnell from Kid Creole and The Coconuts and raided the sounds of 1980s Chicago for his sophomore album, 'Blue Songs', out later this month. In his 6 Mix, Andy plays a selection of classic disco and house music which inspired the new LP, alongside some of his current favourite music making New York dancefloors move.
