For the first official release on his Mr. Intl label, Hercules & Love Affair frontman Andy Butler has teamed up with Jason Kendig (of San Francisco's Honey Soundsystem crew) to craft this incendiary piece of bouncing classic house. Butler and Kendig were kind enough to share with us a stream of their first single, "And I'm (So in Love With You)," before it's released exclusively through Beatport on August 30, along with remixes from Bulgarian producer Kink and Sweden's Deetron (you can stream those here). As you might be able to tell from the warm, authentic-sounding production quality, the duo produced the track "via the same analog technology used when house and techno first met back in '92"—furthering the strict aesthetic Butler intends to continue releasing on his burgeoning new label. He has been abundantly clear about what Mr. Intl will release, saying, "I don’t want anything that sounds pre '85 or post '94." You can check out that sound below.
