UK house phenom Josh Butler is coming to North America. At the beginning of November the maestro will embark on the longest tour of his career on the continent. And the timing for his trek couldn’t be better. Josh recently released his “Can’t Deny” collaboration with MadTech boss Kerri Chandler on his Origins imprint. Plus, he dropped a red-hot remix of seminal tune “I Want You (Forever)” and delivered his massive Strategem EP for Rejected.
Before Josh hopped on a flight we checked in and asked him about new tracks he’s loving at the moment. Read on to learn about jams he might drop during his seven-city DJ tour.
Catch Josh Butler at Bar Standard in Denver on November 1; Panther Room at Output in Brooklyn on November 3; Soul Tech in Mexico City on November 4; Heart in Miami on November 10; Sound in Los Angeles (Origins Showcase) on November 11; Grasshopper in Detroit on November 17; and One Loft in Toronto on November 18
David Berrie – Playing in Space
This was recently released on Jamie Jones’ Hottrax. I dropped it for the first time in Argentina and absolutely fell in love with it! The influences of Garage, dub techno and house are a stunning blend! Proper roller.
Octave One – Blackwater feat. Ann Saunderson & Urban Soul Orchestra
This track brings back some great memories from the Defected Festival in Croatia this year. Boat parties, sunsets, sun rises and house music for an entire week!
Bassmental – Keep It Deep
Bassmental is one of Kerri Chandler’s many production aliases. I had to include something from Kerri as everything he has done over the years is gold. I’m a massive fan of his and also the sound that came out of New Jersey in the ’90s!
Carl Cox – I Want You (Forever) (Josh Butler Remix)
It’s a huge honor for me to have done an official remix for such a legend in our music scene. I’m really happy with the way the track turned out. It’s been getting a crazy response on the dance floors of my gigs over the summer, including support from Carl himself!
Mark Jenkyns – Sirens
This was my secret weapon for the whole season in Ibiza. Mark sent it to me and I was hammering it almost every set for five months. Once it was released it shot up into the Beatport top 5 and very rightly so, great track!
