In just a few years, Josh Butler has firmly established himself as one of house music's most revered talents. Following the unexpected success behind his debut ‘Got A Feeling’ in 2013, Josh soon went on to pick up multiple industry awards from Beatport and DJ Mag, whilst releasing on Roush, Cajual, Madtech, Avotre, VIVa and Noir, to name just a few.
Boasting remixes for Fatboy Slim, Carl Cox and Joris Voorn, warming up for the multi-grammy award winning Nile Rodgers and Chic, and EPs on Rejected, Defected, Poker Flat, Kaoz Theory and 8Bit, it’s easy to see why his diary has seen him tour the globe. This includes numerous Ibiza residencies and appearances, festival sets including Glastonbury, SW4, Defected Croatia, Parklife, Secret Garden Party, and multiple European, US and Australian Tours.
Late 2016 saw the launch of his label ORIGINS RCRDS, with Josh soon pairing house music veterans Marshall Jefferson, Todd Terry and Robert Owens with up and coming artists to the imprint. His stand out collaboration with Bontan, “Call You Back” scored his second Beatport #1 in early 2017. Since then, ORIGINS RCRDS has gone on to become a staple label to take note of, releasing material from Kerri Chandler, Groove Armada, Richy Ahmed and Huxley, and gaining plaudits from a who’s who of the industry’s leading names, with label showcases from London to Los Angeles.
