This coming Monday, Black Butter will be making their first official foray in the birthplace of techno, Detroit, with its party on Monday, May 25th at Populux, where Gorgon City, Kidnap Kid, MK b2b Lee Foss, Dantiez Saunderson, Loud Luxury, and Admn will all be gracing the decks. For a UK label, the significance of this is very special as it is a time to prove themselves in a place where dance music roots run deep, and fans are well educated in underground spheres and beyond. Rather than Black Butter’s Detroit showcase being thought of as a judgement day of sorts, it’s more of a display of artistry that can be enjoyed by the masses. In celebration of the party, we’ve put together a showcase to highlight the top talent that will be guiding the Populux crowd to underground dance music enlightenment. Check it out below and grab tickets to the party here.
• Gorgon City
• Kidnap Kid
• Lee Foss
• Dantiez Saunderson
• Loud Luxury
Hear more from each artist after the jump!

The Mysteryland USA headliners and heavyweight acts are quite possibly one of the most diverse lineup of electronic acts of any festival. From Adam Beyer to Madeon to Robin Schulz to Diplo, every genre under the son is represented, but if you look even closer at the “smaller” names, there is some serious talent grumbling on the smaller stages of the festival’s second year. On the Webster Hall Presents Boys + Girls stage, the names are all impressive, and to show off what that stage will be bringing on the Sunday of Mysteryland, Sweater Beats was brought on to give a taste of what fans can expect with the second volume of the festival’s ‘Music of Mystery’ mixtape series. A glitchy, ADHD-injected medley of future cuts, Sweater Beats mixes 65+ tracks in the small space of an hour masterfully and really demonstrates what will be happening when he takes his place behind the decks. Get your mind thrown for a whirl with the stream above and tickets for Mysteryland USA are available here.

The Black Butter roster is nothing but knee-deep in talent. Kidnap Kid, Gorgon City, Clean Bandit, Rudimental, Jessie Andrews, and more all make up the elite roster of talent, and the UK imprint continually push the boundaries with every release they take on. This year’s Movement Music Festival in Detroit already has a lineup overflowing with dance music talent that will ensure three days of incredible music, but Black Butter looks to extend the party a little bit longer with their official Movement Music Festival AfterParty on May 25th at Detroit’s Populux. Gorgon City and Kidnap Kid will hold the infrastructure for the event, but Black Butter has also pulled in a legendary B2B between MK and Lee Foss. It’s going to be tight. You can grab tickets here.

When this track first popped up on my Soundcloud feed, I couldn’t help but laugh at the title. The play of words – “Prints of Whales” instead of Prince of Wales – gives us a little more insight into the sardonic mind of the secretive talent, TÂCHES. A native of the British isle, TÂCHES has been a sleeper pick in the house world, capturing a select following that are die-hard fans of his biting productions. “Prints of Whales” is no different in the fact that it keeps in the realm of little light but he does play with a lighter synth that instills a little hope while riding through a sharp musical terrain. If you’re ever looking for that late-night secret weapon, grab the free download and be the superhero DJ you were meant to be.

Back at it again, Oliver Heldens returns to the output stream with another funky-fresh future house track named “Bunnydance.” Heldens’ style is one that is hard to avoid dancing too, and “Bunnydance” is no different. Once he gets the bass churning, there’s no turning back as the Dutch young gun keeps the percussion moving ahead and offsets it with a bouncing bassline. Oliver Heldens always manages to pump out fun-filled yet complex tracks that leave us in awe every time. “Bunnydance” will be released on Spinnin’ Records in full on May 18th.
