V.A. – Rise Of The Butterflies compiled by DJane Miss Butterfly (Plusquam Records)


Miss Butterfly has the fascinating ability to trigger what is commonly known as the Butterfly Effect: A small change at one place can result in large differences to a later state.

Let’s take a ride… to the Dark Side! We are invited by Q.U.A.K.E, an act that seems to be a newcomer only as long as you see the name. Having a listen at this EP, it becomes clear quite immediately: These guys have skills that go far beyond the experience level of newbies…

Full On party music does not necessarily have to be packed with effects, drum rolls before each break or even kitschy themes!
