“Sidetracked has been developed to show the other side of bands from the electronic genre who can, and do, DJ,” says Renaissance Geoff Oakes, “It’s an opportunity to offer a diverse, unique series, which makes Hercules & Love Affair the more than perfect choice to kick-start matters.”

Hercules’, aka Andy Butler, self-titled album on DFA wowed critics and music fans across the board in 2008 with tracks such as ‘Blind’ and ‘You Belong’. Their soulful blend of disco-inspired songs provided the perfect soundtrack to summer. A year on, ‘Sidetracked’ arrives just in time for those demanding a similar musical fix …

Andy honed his craft DJing at various underground parties in New York, so returning to the decks was a very natural step for him. He’s used the comp’ to showcase a broad sweep of classic house and disco, plus a brand new Hercules’ exclusive. Says Andy, “I am excited by this compilation to realize two ends: it’s a slamming mix with tracks that have historically made me freak. out in the club, along with new productions – including my Hercules & Love Affair exclusive.”

The compilation will come as a 2-disc set: mixed and specially remastered unmixed format:
