hercules & love affair's debut album turns 10: andy butler looks back at the pro

This has been a “mental” week for Andy Butler. Besides celebrating 10 years of the release of Hercules & Love Affair’s debut album, the mastermind behind the dance music collective is also getting ready to shoot a video for “Are You Certain,” the new single from the group’s latest album Omnion.

If there’s one clear thing about Andy’s career, it's that he knows what he’s doing. And he does it better than anybody.Hercules & Love Affair is a collaborative project that was born out of Butler’s passion for the dance floor, club culture and classic house music. It exploded onto the world scene in 2008 with the r

The Progress MS-07 ship, carrying 2.5 metric tons (2.75 tons) of water, food and scientific equipment, moored at the space outpost in automatic mode Monday two days after its launch from the Russian-leased Baikonur launch complex in Kazakhstan.Saturday's launch came after a two-day postponement and docking plan change.Initially, the Progress cargo ship was to test a new regime for docking with the space station less than four hours after launch. But the Thursday launch was aborted after an unspecified glitch and space officials used the regular two-day regime.
