After an epic-medieval spectacle at Santa Maria da Feira Castle on June 2, with acts like Nic Fanciulli, Davide Squillace and Culoe De Song, eXperience continues its series of events in unlikely places, this time a little more to the north, concretely to the new Cruise Terminal of the Port of Leixões. The German Butch is the first artist announced for the next August 18.
Bülent Gürler aka Butch, fuses the grey-area space between music of the body and mind. Holding residencies over the years at venues and clubs such as Sankeys Ibiza and Robert Johnson in Offenbach Germany, Butch continues to squeeze the best out of every after-hour party and every club night floor that he holds court over. With hits by imprints such as Crosstown Rebels, Rekids, Visionquest and Desolat, his style ranges from house to techno, although he convokes various influences, from the Latin beat inspired by his friend Ricardo Villalobos (with whom he has collaborated in the ButRic project), the electric guitar of Daft Punk, passing by gypsy music, tribal house and jungle. The melodies are, in general, very smooth and danceable, accompanied by a very deep beat. His most recent work is from February this year, it’s called Hijacking and was released on Watergate Records.
The German will be part of a 10-hour schedule – between 5 pm and 3 pm -, divided into two distinct areas, and will play between 19 and 21 pm in the outdoor amphitheatre. Tickets are already available on Ticketline and Festicket.
