How busy can one man be? Let Butane tell you. Heâ€™s running 2 successful record labels, producing EPâ€™s, albums and remixes for some of the most respected labels in the business, and touring extensively across the most renowned clubs in Europe, America, Asia and beyondâ€¦ all without breaking a sweat.
A firm believer that the long hours of studio work keeps a musician grounded, heâ€™s produced 14 EPâ€™s, two albums, and countless remixes to date, on highly respected labels like Crosstown Rebels, Dumb Unit, Foundsound, Alphahouse, Rrygular, Moâ€™s Ferry, and Hallucination Limited. Licensing original tracks to mix compilations such as Matthew Dearâ€™s Fabric mix, Lucianoâ€™s HiFi SciFi on Soma and Damian Lazarusâ€™ Get Lost mix shows that his peers in the industry hold his music in high regard.
He is also the sole creative mind behind Alphahouse Records, one of North Americaâ€™s premier underground electronic music labels. His latest label project, recently embarked upon with his long-time friend Sean Oâ€™Neal (Someone Else), â€œLittle Helpersâ€, is already making waves and popping up in playlists all over clubland.
As a DJ, Butane uses vinyl, Traktor Scratch, samplers, effects and whatever other new tools are available to craft his sets. Plenty of experience as a headline performer as well as an after-hour favourite enables him to play with an incredible range, and his remarkable sensitivity to the energy of the crowd is the rare trait of a seasoned and perceptive musician. His skilfully developed sets are both classy and elegant, but surely never predictable; thanks to his huge collection of new and old tracks alike, expect anything from seamlessly blended groovy, sexy, peak-time techno to warm, deep, heady house music.
Butane certainly makes a strong case for himself as one of the true talents in todayâ€™s music scene. How many hats can one man wear? Or maybe the real question is: Are there any hats left unworn?
