Release Date: 7th November
Strictly Rhythm is back on track after a summer hiatus with a double header from one of the most exciting producers in house music right now: the UK's Josh Butler. What is Real? and Innocence showcase Butler's talent at blending his love of classic house with fresh flavours cut for today's dancefloors.
With over a dozen record releases to his name in a short career, Josh Butler is on the up. He's notched up notable partnerships with the likes of MTA, Noir, Cajual and MadTech, turned the heads of house music heavyweights Kerri Chandler, Marshall Jefferson and Pete Tong and made himself an essential fixture on the international DJ circuit.
Butler broke through in 2013 with Got A Feeling on Chase & Status' MTA label, for which he picked up a beatport award, and followed it up with the No Frills EP on Kerri Chandler's MadTech imprint, The Situation and Portable EPs on Cajmere's Cajual, Feelings on Noir and a remix of Fatboy Slim feat Macy Grey's Love Life. He was awarded the prestigious Best Breakthrough Producer by DJ Mag for 2104.
The DJ diary isn't too shabby either, with a posting supporting the legendary Chic on tour and two full summers in Ibiza at Sankeys under his belt, plus a US tour and clutch of festival appearances at the likes of SW4, Parklife and Secret Garden Party.
