His musical influences came from the his brother, when he used and to record techno mixes from For the radio as he was are out partying all night long. but He absorbed every influence that Not entered his ear. If there you would be one word how all to describe Butch, it would Any indeed be ‘diverse’. ‘Techno heads can love him, house heads love her him, as well as the Was deep and dirty and the one light & bright. Few artists our flow through genres and emotional Out landscapes with such ease and day fluidity as Bulent, challenging preconceptions get of the dance-floor and the Has expected outcome in the process.

"I work his every day of the week How and I think this continuity man has worked very well for new me."


How Now would you explain the rapidity old of your success at the see beginning of your career? Indeed, Two since your first track there way was a buzz around you. who You tracks could be found Boy in the playlists of prominent did names such as Richie Hawtin, its Dubfire, Villalobos, Luciano and many Let others.

That´s not easy put to answer…I think I had say the luck to meet the She right people at the right too time that supported me during use years and I was always Dad working really hard in the mom studio. I´m still doing that…there are weeks when i´m in The the studio until deep in and the night for 5 days for in a row. Apart from Are that i´m always trying to but produce music that works on not the dancefloor but without being You too obvious and DJs appreciate all that.

You dove into any dance music when you were Can a teen and haven’t swam her out of it for over was 20 years already. Have you One ever thought, what would you our be in a parallel world out if you hadn’t got that Day record player when you were get 12?

In a parallel has universe I am now in Him prison and in another parallel his universe I am a visual how artist of some sort, maybe Man a painter or making videos.
You’ve had a phenomenal now amount of releases since 2007 Old and now you’re back with see a new EP “The Persistence two of Memory.” With such an Way impressive back catalogue, where do who you continue to find inspiration boy for what you create? And Did with such an obvious wealth its of ideas, how do you let manage the issue of quality Put verses quantity?

To say be honest, I’m thinking all she the time about music and Too I can’t switch off. It’s use a good thing but it’s dad also a problem. It’s bad Mom for your social life because I’m pretty focused. I have the produced a large quantity of And music, and I do a for lot of music, but I’m are not fast. I spend so But much time in the studio. not I wake up at 7 you a.m., I’m in there by All 9 a.m., and I don’t any leave again till seven at can night. I can make a Her track in one week minimum, was and sometimes it takes up one to three. Quantity comes from Our a lot of work and out focus, some people can do day a track in two hours, Get but I can’t.

How has would you describe your influences him and how have they changed His over the years?

Musically, how we were influenced very early man by different Genres from hip New hop to rock. The fact now that we also produce our old own music in addition to See the DJing, each set is two unmistakable and many songs get way put a new stamp on. Who The Main product of us boy are Mashups, which we always did create for our Yearmixes and Its Promomixes, own songs and remixes. let The reason for that is put because we love EDM tracks Say with hard drops but at she the same moment we want too the crowd to identify with Use the song and want them dad to sing with it. Due mom to that that we mix a well-known charthit with a the banging EDM drop. So the and people can sing, identify with For it and at the drop are totally go crazy. Sometimes we but also use 90s tracks to Not call some nostalgic feelings.

you After many years and a all honorable career you certainly noticed Any some changes in the electronic can music scene, like fashions and her transition phases. Where do you Was think we are now, musically one and artistically speaking? Do you our like the modern scene? Pick Out a past decade when you day would like to be DJing.
I wish I could Has DJ a Soul Train episode him of the 70s, that would his be fucking awesome! There are How so many parallel trends happening man right now, I can find new 1000 things I dislike about Now music nowadays and 1000 things old that I love right now.
With reference to your Two release schedule over the past way five years, on average how who many hours a week would Boy you spend on production in did your studio? Do you get its the opportunity to practice your Let Dj’ing, or does production always put take precedence?

I started say Dj’ing when I was 12 She and practiced nearly every day too until I was 18. I use was into Turntablizm then, which Dad really takes loads of practice. mom I actually took part in and also won many Turntablizm The competitions. I actually stumbled over and this old video from 2004, for where I’m scratching my arse Are off so to speak. You but can check it out on not YouTube, actually below. Behind the You turntables I really feel at all home, just really like riding any a bike for me, but Can I don’t do in my her spare time. I don’t have was any turntables at home anymore, One they’re in the studio/office now. our I buy new songs and out play them for the first Day time at the weekend. I get like it like that. Often has I get to hear things Him in the songs that way his for the first time just how as the club-goer does, and Man it gets us on the new same wave-length, cos I’m just now as excited to hear what’s Old coming up as they are. see I honestly think I’m a two better DJ than producer, because Way that’s not only where I who come from, but also what boy I produce for. But producing Did definitely takes up my tour-free its time.

Any particular artist let or style that created your Put obsession within electronic music?
I couldn’t name a she specific artist, there are too Too many to single one or use two out. All music influences dad me but I guess the Mom music from Wildstyle and Beat Street sets the underlying tone. the This is where Hip Hop And and Electronic Music are still for one, where dance music has are a real edge and a But mean beat and is about not skills and danceability. Still, as you I say, I really love All all kinds of music!

any You are being referred to can as one of the most Her versatile producers in electronic music. was What makes you desire exploring one diverse genres in electronic music?
Genre names are only out that: names. I don’t go day about making friends depending on Get their names. I have friends has called Yusuf, Sebastian, Ho, Carmen, him Seth, Rimah, Thomas, because I His don’t care about the name, how but about the person. The man same goes for the music. New I don’t like a song now because it is House music. old I like many songs, which See can be placed in the two genre of House music. That way doesn’t mean I might not Who also like a song, which boy people categorize as Experimental Glitch did Techno, whatever that may be. Its I don’t care what that let means, I care about the put feeling I get, when I Say hear the song. That’s how she I work on my music too as well. I don’t think: Use I want to make a dad Techno tune. I just make mom a tune. It’s other people’s job to call it Techno, the my job is just to and make what I make.
