Ricardo Villalobos, Troy Pierce, Skudge, Ilario Alicante, Dandy Jack and many more, along with Butane himself, produce for Alpha House and go to charts by Thomas Schumacher, Slam, Shlomi Aber, Mark Henning, Bill Patrick and others.
Butane owns Alpha House vinyl only label since 2005 and in the last 11 years, it has never moved one step from the road of “unapologetically underground” mentality. Andrew Rasse also runs Little Helpers together with Sean O’Neal AKA Someone Else and that’s another unique imprint, which loads the DJs and producers with DJ tools and Ableton packs.
Alpha House is it’s own label, which doesn’t sniff out the tendencies that rule the techno scene and hosts artists who are in the forefront of the scene for years, just because they make music that suits it.
The minimalistic mathematical tracks get their way to the best DJ sets right away from the classic approach of their producers.
Housy or techno, the releases on Alpha House are always straight on point. The wide range of moods – from the darker deepness to sampled soulful vocals – everything is perfectly curated and breeded for timeless use.
It might sound convenient to say this, but each and every time a new release hits the shelves I’m equally proud. Looking back there are certainly records that I’m more proud of than others, but a lot of hard work goes into each release, so they’re all special to me.
