Brute name, versatile sound: Over 100 releases in 5 years have enabled BUTCH to express this
versatility and brute-fully force his way to becoming a shaping artist in the worldwide landscape of
Honestly this success comes as no surprise, anyone who manages to release on the labels of artists such
as Ricardo Villalobos (Sei es Drum), Sven Väth (Cocoon) and Radioslave (Rekids) within a year and
gets voted “producer of the year” (2010 & 2011) by the GROOVE magazine readers for two
consecutive years, has doubtlessly worked his way up to the small circle of artists, which pack the most
renowned clubs and festivals as headliners.
For Butch his latest performances include Tokyo's own Womb, Fabric in London and the Time Warp
2011. Last summer he followed Carl Cox's invitation to play together at Space in Ibiza and spent every
other week with his own residency at Sankeys on the most beloved Mediterranean island. 2012 started
just like the last year ended – many more miles were added to the Lufthansa card: After a tour through
Mexico, Central America and Australia, top notch clubs in Europe are waiting for Butch: Robert
Johnson in Offenbach, Tenax in Florence, Cadenza at Ushuaia Beach (Ibiza), Loveland in the
Netherlands, Extrema Festival in Belgium and the renowned “Sonne Mond und Sterne” as well as the
“Merkwürdige Verhalten am Strand” - festivals are all expecting to be captured by Butch's sound.
On the other hand capturing what Butch's style is exactly isn't that simple. The range within the
productions of the Mainz born artist stretches from House to Techno, but Butch manages to inject his
own authentic and unique sound, which digs itself through the fans' and DJs' ears right into their hearts.
The musical diversity and his joy for experimentation have made his albums “Papillon” (2008) and
“Eyes Wide Open” (2010) to audible feasts for every gourmet, to be enjoyed just as much on the home
stereo as well as in any club.
That his sound achieves positive resonance en masse is impressively shown on the Resident Advisor
homepage. The website which claims to be an international indicator for the credibility of electronic
music and its producers, had Butch up as the “Most Charted Artist” for over a year. A success which
speaks volumes, because it cannot be manipulated as record sales once were; solely the charts of a
worldwide DJ community count.
The good-spirited global player has a lot more music coming for us to look forward to. More new
releases on other top labels are ready to hit the floors, as well as his own record label bouq. Which is
maturing to be the renowned imprint which won't be standing in the shadows of its makers (besides
Butch this includes his friend and studio-partner Amir) any longer. By the way, within the next twelve
months, Butch will hit the stores with a new album. Good times, stay tuned!
