Butch Biography

BUTCH can easily be counted as one of the most interesting newcomers of the last two years in the world of electronic music.
With his innovative productions and remixes that range from Techno, Minimal and Neo-Trance, which were released on renowned labels such as Great Stuff, Craft Music and AFU Limited, Butch has managed to make himself a name nationally and internationally within a very short period of time.

Butch’s Great Stuff debut entitled “On the Line” with remixes by the French producer legend Oxia and Cocoon act Pig&Dan was one of the most successful tunes of last autumn and spent weeks in the Top5 of the Beatport charts.

His Craft Music releases “Life is Deadly” and “Falling” and his remixes for “Black Market” by Swoop (aka Stephan Bodzin) and “Sync In” by Silent Breed (Thomas P. Heckmann) can easily be counted as hits and found support by international superstars such as Deep Dish, Axwell, John Acquaviva, D’Ramirez, Steve Angello, Claude VonStroke and Oliver Koletzki.
The aftermath was predictable: Bookings in Tokyo, Paris, London, Barcelona, Kiev, Zurich and Vienna. With his driving DJ sets with an extremely pushing mixture of tech-house and hypnotic minimal-techno Butch knows how to set his audience into the state of ecstasy, always leaving room for unexpected and surprising moves.

2008 started in a promising way for Butch: His “Mushroom Man”-EP was released on Thomas P. Heckmann’s legendary AFU Limited with spectacular sales following and found a lot of prominent supporters such as Ricardo Villalobos, DJ Hell, Oliver Huntemann and the Italoboyz. Furthermore Butch received the honour and official recognition by being nominated at the BEATPORT MUSIC AWARDS already in two categories (Best Techno&Best Remix Techno) next to top-acts such Dubfire, Stephan Bodzin and Oxia.
Butch’s future is looking bright and busy: Besides further singles, EPs and remixes for labels such as Great Stuff, Trapez, AFU Limited and Toolroom Records, he has already produced more than half of his upcoming solo album, which he is hoping to release this fall.
