Alphahouse label owner Butane teams up DJ, producer and contemporary piano music composer, Andras Toth to produce this funky, melodic hook-driven EP, Elements of Truth. Given Toth’s musical background, it’s no surprise that there is an infectious underlie as the harmonious groove develops along with the bass.
