This week the team of Ibiza by night is very proud to have as guest a great Dj and producer as Butch!
Butch since 20 years is a respected artist worldwide in the electronic and techno scene!
Ibiza by night met Butch (in the pictures below) to talk about his current and future project..and… of course about his special relationship with our magical island.. because of Butch will play again in Ibiza also in summer 2014!
Ibn: Tell us about your relationship with Ibiza. What do you think it is about the island that attracts so many Djs to live there or spend long periods of time there?
Butch: “Oh, man, where to start? First of all everyone loves Ibiza’s beauty and of course the weather. In summertime the weather is usually really good and, let’s be honest, producers and DJs normally spend their time going from the studio to the club to the airport and then straight to a hotel. We just don’t get any sun at all. Essentially the only time of the year we are outside is when we get back to Ibiza (laughs). The sea-air is also really nice compared to the often non-existent club-air. In Ibiza we inhale enough oxygen to keep us going for the winter months! Then I love Ibiza because the people here are beautiful and ready to party all the time, the clubs and sound-systems are the bomb, you get to see many friends and have a wonderful time. I can think of thousands of reasons why everyone loves coming to Ibiza!”.
Ibn: What are you up to this summer tour-wise? Any special projects?
Butch: “This year I am taking it slow, tour-wise. I have some really special gigs in Ibiza that I am looking forward to like DC10, with the beautiful people from Circoloco. DC10 was my first clubbing experience in Ibiza as a consumer so it’s really cool to play here now. Another very big highlight is my gig at Amnesia’s closing party this year, I’m really excited to play there! This summer though my focus lies on my new baby called “Otherside”, Hohberg and I are its parents. Otherside is our label, live-project and the name of our album. You know, babies need their parents, so I am home in the studio a lot to nurture it so it becomes big and strong (laughs)”.
Ibn: Where do you prefer to play? Big clubs, smaller clubs or festivals? And why?
Butch: “That’s like asking me, where do I love to have sex most. You don’t want to do it in bed every single time. Every location has its benefits and its perks. After a long winter in clubs I am thirsty for some outside-action (grins)”.
Ibn: What have you got coming up over the next few months? (new releases, remixes etc)
Butch: “I’m all about the Otherside right now, working full-time on the album along with the live set-up and label. This is some mind-blowing work Hohberg and I are creating. Our debut release is “Rebirth” which is already in the pipeline and is ready for take-off very soon”.
Ibn:You have played both in Europe and the US. Are the scenes very different? Does your set need to adapt to each market?
Butch: “My set always adapts to the specific location and the vibe I get when I enter the venue, in that sense I don’t distinguish any more between Brussel, Berlin or Bel-Air. America is different, of course. Funnily enough in dance-music the Americans seem more oriented now towards what the Europeans are doing, generally speaking. To me that’s remarkable. In the mid-90s HipHop days that was unheard of. Americans always seemed 10 years ahead of us, style and music-wise. Of course this isn’t true for every individual, there are highly creative and forward-thinking artists both sides of the pond”.
Ibn:When will we be seeing you next in Ibiza?
Butch:”4th August at the Circoloco party in DC10, see you there, party-animals!”
