This week on the mix, we welcome Eagles & Butterflies – an electronic music producer from the UK. A vintage synth aficionado, he has worked with labels such as Running Back, Mute, Domino and his own imprint Art Imitating Life. As always, we first caught up to find out about the mix and what he’s been up to recently…
Hey Guys! Recently I’ve been working lots in the studio and touring a bunch. Had a busy year with music so far, and getting ready for my first release on Running Back. I used a really dope studio in LA called Synth Cabin by Rob Rosen and the gang and re-recorded a whole bunch for it on some killa synths like the Moog Modular, CS-80 and Oberhiem 8 voice.
I asked a bunch of producer friends I really like for some new music whilst touring and got an idea for the mix then recorded it when I got back to the studio.
The idea for the mix was just a feel good peak time mix full of melody, I wanted to try and incorporate all aspects of peak time I like to play; with inspiration from 80s, 90s, Italo and some darker bits also, with a classic or 2 thrown in !
Up next is my first EP on Running Back coming in October which I’m really buzzing about, for sure my favourite label, also just finishing up some remixes for Bob Moses, RY X and a bunch others. There are also some remixes coming on my label from Jennifer Cardini, Chinaski and Hiver !
