Image: 1609396 Find a moment of clarity. ¡EUREKA! is the new LP on Alpha Pup
from Eureka the Butcher, a collection of intense, involved tracks with
deliberate arrangements and undefnable style.
Artists and searchers long for that “eureka” moment – an illuminated
instance of clear purpose and pure focus. For Eureka the Butcher,
as for many, the light follows the dark:
“I wrote a lot of this album at a very dark time in my life. I’d lost some
very important people in my life and I was at my most insecure,
personally and musically speaking. I had to remember where I come
from, who I’d learned from. I was at a low point and I hadn’t been
applying my culture and my upbringing to my everyday life. But
then I had a moment of clarity, and I started to feel better. I began
remembering that I come from an incredible place, raised and taught
by incredible people. Then I made some drastic decisions, including
moving to Los Angeles. I also had a eureka moment in terms of
work?ow and approach.”
The album’s multifaceted nature re?ects Eureka’s diverse inspiration.
Modular synth music of the ‘60s and ‘70s. LA’s rap, electronic, beat,
and bass music scene. Hardware used to create the album dominates
its sonic profle, from synthesizers and outboard compressors to live
percussion and tape delays.
“But the biggest in?uence is the music I grew up with: salsa,
psychedelic rock, progressive rock, and fusion. These types of
music taught me how to play… I gravitated towards what I know:
psychedelia, fast bass, synth lines, Caribbean rhythms and extremely
tight relationships between interwoven parts.”
