Arkham Presents | Black Butter Records Showcase ft. MY NU LENG & WOZ
This November 28th, we’re showcasing the sounds and thrills of one of the most buzzing labels in the world, Black Butter Records, featuring two of the label’s most exciting acts: My Nu Leng and Woz. UK-based Black Butter Records is a new but potent addition to the music industry, representing Rudimental, Gorgon City, and Clean Bandit among many other big UK names. Since 2010, they’ve released over 70 albums and singles, , and host almost 10 million fans online among BB artists. Their new partnership with Sony Music will be an exciting one to watch in upcoming years, and tonight is the night to celebrate that and many other accomplishments!
Having recently produced two releases under Black Butter Records, My Nu Leng, consists of members Tommy and Jammo, hailing from Kent and High Wycombe respectively. They’re bringing their unique blend of UK House, Dubstep, UK garage and Grime to the dance floor of Arkham. Their dark, moody vibe is always undeniably danceable, and they make sure that each set brings something entirely new to the table. It’s this constant innovation that has built them a unique reputation in and outside of the music industry.
Woz is the youngster of Black Butter Records, at only 20 years old. But don’t let his age fool you; he has been releasing beats to great reception ever since his remix of Rudimental’s “Feel The Love” with Childish Gambino went viral a couple years back. His interest in Detroit house, mixed with his UK based technique, has led to countless international bookings. But, like the evolution of My Nu Leng, he is focusing on the basics of musicality; the use of drum machines, making music in a more analogue fashion, and delving into the history and heart of different music styles allows him to understand that sometimes less production is more.
Tickets are a steal at 100RMB, and you won’t want to miss partying with this newly iconic label, and two of their most popular dance floor dominating exports.
