With over 20 years consumed by a thirst for electronic music, Bülent Gürler AKA Butch has released on leading imprints such as Desolat, Cocoon, Rekids, Sei Es Drum and beyond, while maintaining a solid DJ schedule that’s seen him open the minds of crowds at Fabric, Time Warp and his residency at Berlin’s Watergate. 22‐years ago, a 12 year old Butch received his first record player, some second hand vinyl and obediently burrowed into his room to scritch‐scratch and beat juggle imitating and idolizing the masters he saw at the DMC World Championships and the vinyl culture central to its core. Of course, he grew older and louder and continued to broaden his palate for music. Butch got hooked on the art of sculpting beats sometime in the last millennium. He started with baby‐steps in 1991 before reaching his current optimum state, a refined style that’s seen him voted as ‘Best Producer’ in Groove and Raveline magazines two years in a row, whilst also sitting atop the AllTime Most Charted section on Resident Advisor. He says 'I absorb influence and ideas from everywhere...so, as my music has many styles, I like to make different styles too'. It’s true that with Butch, you never know what to expect, other than consistently sounding fresh and unique output. 'The Infamous' released this summer 2014 on Rebirth, is the expression of Butch's attitude and the musical enthusiasm of C. Vogt, son of the violinist K.Vogt and a great musician, who started studying the piano and saxophone and rapidly entering walls of the world of electronic music ! An infectious tune, a combination between a subtle jazzy drum pattern, a driving bass line, strings and an irresistible rhodes theme, all played live. A timeless record that has being played everywhere in Ibiza and beyond, and is sounding like a classic already.
