-Stemming from a more symphonic third grade beginning, Devin Butcher (DJDevButcher) immersed himself in the resonating sounds of strings and musical culture. Picking up a violin in the 3rd grade; the vast dynamics, stark contrasts, tempo, color, and velocity of its natural beauty, drove Dev to instinctually find a deep passion for Trance music…this was made possible by way of Rank 1’s legendary track Airwave, in 1997. Another very close 2nd for his inspirational wheel house, is Safri Duo - Snake Food/Rise. Devin’s taste for the longitudinal wave called sound, sought the finer nuisances of each evolving genre from then on. From: house, breaks, techno, electro, and even eventually EDM; these constituents slowly carved away at his mind's idea of what sound has the potential to be.
-Ultimately, it is in the mechanics of how to coax another individual into expressing their deepest emotions on the dance floor, that has fueled Dev Butcher’s desire for performing. It is in all the minute details of Dev's ever expanding drive, that the experiences of his sets culminate in unexpected twists and turns. He constantly asks himself questions by which to measure his art, in an effort to accurately examine his abilities, and grow. How do you create the proper valleys for fireworks of peaks? How do you descriptively create a message, while maintaining a close relationship with your dance floor? How do you introduce an audience to something new?
-The diverse scenes and genres Devin has transcended throughout his career, has only reinforced the methods to conduct his madness. Genres are irrelevant to him. A good piece of music will always transcend barriers. To him, if a track does not have transcendental potential, then it is not something people need to hear. Quality is always at he very top of his priorities. He believes that music is the raw key to allow the ideal of ‘unity,’ to one day exist on this diverse sphere of carbon and water.
