Texas might not be high on too many people’s list when you think of things like hip-hop and the new beat movement. But Butcher Bear aims to change all that. The enigmatic mastermind behind Insect Records has dutifully been putting in work for a few years now. Releasing a barrage of products, from flexi-disc 7″ to full length vinyl compilations and everything in between, Butch has really let the work sink in and speak for itself.
He boasts releases by the mysterious and elusive Dakim, the Afro-centric and progressive Georgia Anne Muldrow and Dudley Perkins, Detroit ambassador House Shoes, and many, many more. Always filled with intricate and interesting design and presentation, the Texas connosseuir is definitely in for the long haul and looking to make an impact.
Recently, after showing and proving on countless releases of other people’s music, Butcher Bear is stepping up to the plate himself and releasing Truth Against The World, a collection of “broken and brash sounds coupled with live drums and mind messages throughout.” Combining root elements of hip-hop with the new wave of electronic influence, Butcher Bear has you covered — no matter if you prefer to dance or nod your head to your music.
