Over the festive period we make our mark in Brighton with a début at the brand spanking new Coliseum, formally known as the heavyweight Digital. Starting life in Ibiza we now present new branding & a new look, but our outlook and ethos to deliver unmatched house & techno events in the best locations remains the same as ever. This December we intend to make some serious waves in the South East and we’re ecstatic to be joined by one of the underground’s most brightest young stars for a very rare appearance, Josh Butler.
From the North of England to dance floors across the globe, Josh Butler has made serious headway with his high caliber house sound. Cut from the outspoken West Yorkshire club circuit and propelled towards the forefront of global club land’s next generation, an early affliction with solid club hits has made his name an essential one. Two stints for MTA Records and remix duties for both Chase & Status in tow, Butler is leading the charge towards a new precedent in the underground sound.
Inaugurated into the world of music production at the tender age of 12, a passion for music and such early entertainment platforms as Music for Playstation and eJay were quickly transitioned into an early-rising understanding of Reason. His teenage years took him to New Zealand, offering a quiet and concentrated space in which Butler could hone his senses to craft with little in the way of distraction. As a student, Leeds helped Josh put two and two together, making up for lost time with a steady uprising of the city’s beloved nightspots that primed the taste buds for impending global ascendancy.
The sound of Josh Butler is a club lover’s affair. Infatuated by the prospect of making people move and taking like minds into the early hours with intense club cuts, a packed room and a good vibe is what truly summoned Butler to the cause. At the dawn of 2013, there was no intention of global explosion behind stripped back MTA debut “Got A Feeling.” In foresight, the track invariably proved to be Josh’s breakout into the industry’s field of vision, racking remix duties from Ben Pearce and Bontan along the way. Likewise, the Leeds-based breakout had little time to consider that eight months down the line, his “Closer” / “Keep Movin” would receive a heroes welcome from tastemakers at every possible avenue. The industry perked an ear, Pete Tong gave his seal of approval on the BBC airwaves and before long, Butler had become the household name that everyone from Steve Lawler to Heidi was championing. Since, ‘Got A Feeling’ has become the second most downloaded track of all time on Beatport – an unprecedented feat.
On home territory, Josh has become something of an ambassador to the next generation of integral house advocates. True to the momentum of his releases, the past two years have seen global ears have prick to this groove favoring talent. Scaling Ibiza, Lyon, Vienna, Kiev and Switzerland with his concentrated clubbing experience, Butler’s playing field is growing bigger by the month – much like the size of the crowds now flocking to hear what all the fuss is about.
Championed for underground impact and savored for his ‘less is more’ approach, the year ahead is showing little sign of slowing down for Warrington’s worst kept secret. From here, Josh Butler is all about building that positive momentum towards new and compelling heights. Past the No Thrills EP for MadTech, his is timeline racking impressive aspirations for the global dance community. He’s got global ventures on the mind, high brow remix duties to unfold and of course, a pledge to keep dance music in the hands of those who truly savor the art over its mainstream properties. Proving that familiarity can still be fresh and ability is in the control of its beholder, Josh Butler is a force to be reckoned with on the European front.

LWE presents: Futureboogie is 13
31st January 2015
10pm – 6am
2-18 Warburton Road,
London, E8 3FN
On January 31st, Futureboogie returns to the capital to celebrate 13 years of putting on parties.
From humble origins as a club night in Bristol back in 2001 Futureboogie have taken their ethos and sound much further afield and become a globally recognised name. Now comprising of a record label, booking agency and management company, Futureboogie have brought unforgettable memories to the best festivals in the UK and beyond.
The 31st sees us welcome a couple of old family crew in the shape of Maxxi Soundsystem and Christophe alongside one of our newest recruits Mark E.
Needing no introductions Maxxi Soundsystem will be bringing his usual selection of upfront house music. To add to the family vibe, we’ve called on Christophe; a name Futureboogie fans will already be aware of thanks to his unswerving ability to hold a dancefloor.
Mark E’s brand new Activity EP for the label, has garnered plaudits from across the board. The release continues to reflect the eclectic taste of both the label and its resident DJs Dave Harvey & Joe 90, who finish off the line up.
While 13 might be unlucky for some- for any club night to still be going strong for 13 years is surely testament to something; we’re just not quite sure what…
1st Release – £15.00 +bf
2nd Release – £17.50 +bf
3rd Release – £20.00 +bf
