One of the UK’s most exciting labels, Black Butter Records, is responsible for breaking some of the finest dance acts of today, such as Gorgon City, Rudimental, Jess Glynne, Kidnap Kid, and more. As a trusted source of everything from club & festival hits to tasteful, electronic-driven pop, this burgeoning platform is flourishing with an almost cult-like following in the UK and abroad, but especially in United States where their grip seems to strengthen with each release, affiliated artist performance, and label night. As of late, it seems as though they’re amplifying their efforts in the event sphere as they pushed Black Butter Records nights with Gorgon City’s recent tour, and now they’re set to kick up the vibes in Detroit with a massive party at Populux featuring Gorgon City, Kidnap Kid, and underground dons MK & Lee Foss (B2B) as special guests on Monday, May 25th – capping off the Movement weekend.
In celebration of Black Butter’s epic party to-be, we’ve put together a playlist to help get you in the mood for these Detroit happenings, and give you a better idea of what to expect, if you didn’t know already. Enjoy above and grab tickets to the Black Butter party here.
