Toi, Toi Mon Toit #3
— ✰VENDREDI 21 AVRIL✰ — R2 I Le Rooftop I La Brigade Mondaine & Les Aperos Lounge présentent: «Toi, Toi, mon Toit» Vendredi 21 avril de 19h à 2h avec exeptionelement cette semaine le Dj et producteur Allemand BUTCH (DJ / Producer).
“In Pulp Fiction, the taxi driver asks Bruce Willis why he’s called Butch. He says «American, honey. Our names don't mean shit.»
That’s why I chose it.”
Butch, aka Bülent Gürler isn’t a man interested in playing into one musical community.
Born and raised in Germany’s Mainz, his foray into music began aged 11 when he
witnessed a DMC championship final on TV. From then on Bülent pursued
“Breakdancing, graffiti, then DJing. I stuck with DJing as it seemed to be the one I was
good at.” Apparently so: a succession of DJ competitions later and Bülent was a local
club resident by 2002, touring as far as Japan by 2005.
By 2008 Butch’s production had synced with his DJing, following a similar route of “Trip
hop, some cheesy harder techno then this kind of house and techno crossover”. That
same year saw Butch commit to making collaborations a major part of his output — a
trend he’s continued to this day. A vinyl release on Envy My Music saw Butch
collaborating with fellow emergent artist Julie Marghilano on Last Tango, a release on
Great Stuff saw a hook up with Amir with Set it Off and just months later in 2009 Area
Remote released From Above as a joint effort between Butch & Virginia. Subsequent
collaborations have included Riva Starr, Johnny D and “a whole load of others I forgot to
officially add my name to.”
Small wonder then that the list of labels Butch has worked with is equally extensive,
including Moon Harbour, Visionquest, Hot Creations, Desolat, Watergate, Rekids and
others. As of 2016 Butch has added to that list with a release on Seth Troxler’s
Tuskagee imprint titled Jack Your Body.
Despite the extensive discography however, he regards himself outwardly at least as
more of a DJ than a producer. “It’s probably fifty-fifty. When I first started touring
promoters were surprised a producer could actually DJ. That’s normal now, but I want to
keep that element — of surprising people with sets, not just extensive releases.” Small
wonder then, that Butch has played as far afield as the US, Korea, Spain, the Czech
Republic, Switzerland and the UK, in the first part of 2016 alone.
It’s this constant drive to deliver on the dancefloor as much as on the mixdowns that
sees Butch embark on a blaze of activity in 2016. His own label, Otherside, launches
this year with a debut EP featuring himself and Ricardo Villalobos. In tandem, Butch is
launching a residency series titled Down The Rabbit Hole launching later this year at
Watergate Berlin. Oh, and he’s got a vinyl only release confirmed on Drumcode.
“In Pulp Fiction, the taxi driver asks Bruce Willis why he’s called Butch. He says
That’s why I chose it.”
In a world where
positioning, strategic bookings, branding and personal image are increasingly as
important as the music itself, Butch, aka Bülent Gürler refuses to conform. The name
means nothing — because he’s not here to dazzle or intimidate, he’s here to play.
American, honey. Our names don't mean shit.’
