Josh Butler announces ‘Timezones’


Josh Butler returns to his ORIGINS RCRDS imprint to reveal the first instalment of ‘Timezones’. It’s a new series showcasing productions inspired by and created within different cities from across the globe.

It’s fair to say that as 2019 draws to a close, Josh Butler continues to make his ascent as one of house music’s brightest stars. Whilst recent releases have welcomed material via the likes of Solid Grooves, Hot Creations, Poker Flat, Rejected and 8Bit alongside remixes of Richy Ahmed, Carl Cox and Joris Voorn, his ORIGINS RCRDS imprint has also enabled Butler to showcase his innate talents as an A&R, welcoming the likes of Groove Armada, Richy Ahmed, Seb Zito, Audiojack and ANOTR to the label in the last 12 months, and the fledgeling label now serves as a home for his latest project – ‘Timezones’.

The idea itself was birthed in Croatia this summer, with an air hostess telling Butler to “put his laptop away for takeoff”, leading to the naming of the closing project after it was ”saved as that in a rush and stuck”. Whilst each track on the package and those set to follow each represent an individual journey for the label boss. Now launched as a full series, Part 001 sees tracks with influences from and created within Addis Ababa (Ethiopia), his hometown of Warrington (UK), Seminyak (Bali) and Tisno (Croatia), set to drop on the label in late November.

Grahame Farmer

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
