BUTANE // ALPHAHOUSE, LITTLE HELPERS – USA
Butane has been flying the underground flag, professionally,
unapologetically, since 2001 when he began DJing. There are countless mechanisms ready-built into the electronic music industry which relentlessly pull one toward commercialization, aka selling-out, and he vows to resist them at all costs.
As a dj, Butane is a consumate master of headline sets and and a dextrous hand at the afterhours, a skill honed over years in the basements of his native St Louis to the backrooms of Berlin, (long before its discovery as a techno tourist mecca).
A firm believer that long hours of studio work keep a musician grounded, he boasts an impressive discography, released by some of the most highly esteemed labels in the business, such as Crosstown Rebels, Get Physical, Sci-Tec, Alphahouse, Little Helpers, and more.
Owner of two exceptional record labels (Alphahouse & Little Helpers), and responsible for a sprawling and impressive discography of original work and remixes, he forges his own path. Against the odds, he believes talent, hard work, dedication to craft, attention to detail, and uncompromising belief in these core principles is the way to conduct a meaningful career in the music
business. Because of this, Butane consistently snubs offers promising money in exchange for small pieces of his soul. Those kinds of things chip away at a man until what remains is unrecognizable. Instead, he grows, evolves, changes on his own terms.
Respect the music. Respect the culture. Success is not measured in social media likes.
