Duke Hugh – Butterflies

Duke Hugh is a Dutch electronic producer. South London record label Rhythm Section International just dropped his debut album entitled Canvass.

While latin-beat ‘Butterfliesis a Gilles Peterson track favorite, the entire album grooves to put you in a dreamy state of mind. From his Bandcamp page:

Each song has its own essence, there is absolutely no filler and the entire double pack sits together as a perfect whole. Flirting with aspects of broken beat, Jazz, hip hop and dreamy electronica – Duke Hugh winds together a most idiosyncratic release equally at home on the peak time dancefloor as it would be for a long road trip. Canvas is a big statement from an artist who’s here to stay.

RA: Playing Favourites: Gilles Peterson – Interview

Gilles Peterson on playing what he wants without hubris.

I’m not into just throwing stuff in just to shock people, either. I like to have a flow and to be able to build something beautiful with my music, in a way. I think there is an art. It’s not just about chucking it out there and being eclectic and cool. I don’t agree with that theory. I think that it’s about having finesse and refinement about how you create a DJ set. I can find a connection between Lonnie Liston Smith’s live version of “Welcome To My New World” and DJ Rashad cutting up some old Roy Ayers bits. It’s all joining the dots, basically.

His mixes are indeed little pieces of art.
