Hercules and Love Affair brings together the talents of producer/remixer Andrew Butler with Antony (from Antony & The Johnsons), Nomi, and Kim Ann. Butler emerged from making music for college-based dance projects into a fully-fledged recording artist, via the New York art scene. He hooked up with his friends and got them to collaborate and sing his songs and Hercules & Love Affair is the result. The debut album features exciting dancefloor concoctions, an arthouse vision of Pure Pop by way of futuristic electronica and classic dance music, where beautiful, bruising harmonies and tensile rhythms collide in resurgent soundscapes and emotive disco workouts.
