Raving Butterflies Steve Bug, Cle Rejected

A dynamic duo returns to Joris Voorn and Edwin Oosterwal’s Rejected: Steve Bug and Cle. Two old friends who get together with no other motive than to have fun on their machines and dig deep into the art of groove creation.

Their collaborative fusion is a tried and tested combination that goes back almost 20 years with tracks like ‘Behind TheCurtain’ and ‘Monkey Shoulder’. It continues to this day, with much of their collaborative output landing on Rejected, including huge heaters like ‘Together’, ‘Tweaky Blinders’, ‘Flying Keys’. And now these two wonderful late night monsters: ‘The Rave’ and ‘Butterflies Speak Poetry’.

‘The Rave’ is the sound of Bug and Cle flexing back over their old Berlin stomping grounds like Planet and E-Werk. Armed with swinging percussive beats and classic ravey detuned synth tones, it’s that perfect sweet spot between heritage and futurism, rooted in the foundation but still with its head in tomorrow.

For added sweetness, dig deeper for the profound sounds of ‘Butterflies Speak Poetry’. An intense exploration of 303 funk, this one is all about the acid lines and how they intertwine and flutter between each other to create another timeless slab of deep, dark matter funk. Every bit as free spirited as both butterflies and poetry, it’s another precision combination from the long-standing Rejected duo. Long may this dynamism continue.
