Butch is probably a name that rings a bell if you have even a slight interest in house and techno.

Butch is a DJ and producer with Turkish roots who hails from Mainz and now calls Ibiza and Dubai home. As a winner of various prestigious awards in the “Best Producer” category, Butch is a regular performer at some of the industry’s most renowned clubs and events, such as Circoloco and Robert Johnson. He has collaborated with electronic music royalty from Ricardo Villalobos and Maceo Plex up to Frank Wiedemann and Keinemusic and released on prestigious labels, including Radio Slave’s Rekids, Dixon’s Innervisions, Solomun’s Diynamic, Axel Boman’s Studio Barnhus, Tiga’s Turbo Recordings, The Martinez Brothers’ Cuttin’ Headz, Gerd Janson’s Running Back, Damian Lazarus’ Crosstown Rebels, Loco Dice’s Desolat, Dubfire’s SCI+TEC, and Sven Väth’s Cocoon, among others.

However, Butch’s influence on the scene goes beyond a swanky but still impressive list of name-dropping collabs and labels. Brought up in Mainz, having to beg, steal and borrow (literally) to get his first set of turntables as a teen, Butch hasn’t made it to the top by chance. Realising his love of DJ’ing at the tender age of twelve, he poured his heart and soul into building a life encompassed by music. Beating the odds to get his first sets. Ignoring the knock-backs of the intimate club scene with a higher goal in mind. No stranger to lengthy days in the studio, he now has one of the most extensive discographies out there.
