Emerging from 'the depths of Melbourne's South East' area, Butter Sessions is an impressive new label from the roving warehouse night of the same name, with founders Sleep D at the helm on the first release. Previously seen impressing on fellow Australian labels Cuckoo Music and Death Strobe, the Sleep D pairing of Maryos & Corey have stepped up their production game notably on the Jackal EP. You could throw around labels like TTT, Sex Tags and LIES as signifiers here, but Sleep D still have their own production personality and there's a sense of marauding fun that's apparent from the off. Lead track "Street Cleaner" is French filter house brushed with rough hewn jacking drums, whilst "Rawtz" is typical of the raw, unprocessed house you'd find in a current Kyle Hall DJ set and is made all the more special by some jagged editing. Face down and switch up to 45 and "The Frankston Jackal" is an acid techno stomper that teeters on the brink of all out chaos.
