Butch Curates An Alternative Summer Playlist For The Idle Man


As summer draws in and festival season is well and truly upon us, we at The Idle Man have called upon one of house music’s finest selectors Butch to put together an alternative summer playlist ahead of his appearance at Sonus. Steering away from your average selections - Butch has chosen to pick his top 25 hip hop tunes, perfect for long summer nights and lazy days. Reflecting on his choices for the playlist Butch explained he 'Just wanted to showcase some of the tracks I like to listen to when not on tour or in the studio, more relevant to the lifestyle and just to share the nostalgic feel I get when I hear good old hip hop, this one's a playlist to listen to in the car, in the office, in an afters or on a comedown.

This summer sees Butch playing at Sonus - Croatia’s premiere house and techno festival. For Sonus’ 2018 edition, Butch will be joining some of the finest selectors in electronic music Peggy Gou, Maceoplex, Richie Hawtin, Amelie Lens and Seth Troxler to name but a few. Set in the idyllic surroundings of Zrce Beach, Pag Sonus is a must visit festival for any electronic music head looking for a summer getaway.

Sonus 2018 looks to be a good one.
