Debut Transmission: Josh Butler – Snake Skin



Not as self aggrandizing as the London scene or as outwardly flamboyant as Manchester’s notoriously underground musical movement, Leeds is all too often Britain’s forgotten city when people are evaluating UK talent and we think that’s a massive shame as it’s discreetly a hotbed of creativity.

Boasting a long and illustrious past, the latest name to come off of the Yorkshire city’s conveyor belt of talent is Josh Butler, a man dedicated to dance in more ways than one. One of the new school of the UK house scene we’ve been fans of Josh for a while now, having first featured him on Data Transmission back at the very start of 2013 when he served up a particularly groovy edition of the DT podcast.

Since then Mr. Butler has gone on to forge a fierce reputation in the studio as well as the DJ booth, garnering an international following as fans and critics fall over themselves to tip as as one of the hottest up and coming producers in the game today.

Having already impressed on the likes of Cajual, Skint VIVA and Lost Butler is now about to land on Sante’s vaunted Avotre imprint for the release of his new ‘Snake Skin’ EP.

Aimed squarely at the dance floor, the three tracker looks sure to get people thawing out those boogying muscles upon its release this September as Josh showcases just what tech-house can be when the right producer puts his mind to it. Meaty, groovy and dubby in equal measure, this is an EP certainly not to be slept on.
