Soul Button: DJ / Producer
Already considered an exciting talent from his previous endeavors in the field of Hip Hop, Soul Button is the new project of a well-established forward thinking dj and producer.
Born alongside the Berlin-based house label Steyoyoke, Soul Button has been a key figure in carrying the label’s philosophy of staying true to the music whilst still holding a strong relationship with the fans. In an industry that relies heavily on fashionable images and artist names, Soul Button prefers to remain anonymous and instead, uses the Button as an attribute of himself to further underline his philosophy.
“Each unbuttoned button is a disclosed secret,
a higher level of conscious intimacy.
Each fastened button is a hard barrier,
an insurmountable obstacle.
According to that, the button becomes a symbol of communication.” (quotation)
Soul Button’s eclectic taste and background has seen a unique production style develop, from within the heart of this talented artist. A vigorous house beat is combined with a touch of soul to create a smooth groove, ranging from soulful and melodic deep house to innovative tech-house.
A string of remixes alongside two accomplished releases have made Soul Button a force to be reckoned with. His first release on Steyoyoke saw a strong debut in May 2012 with an energetic and driving 3 track affair entitled ‘Shadows’. Soul Button’s next steps saw him further propelled into the limelight with the enticing and provocative, ‘Play Again’ EP.
Though expectation has been heavy upon this talented artist’s shoulders, Soul Button has showed no signs of weakness as he continues to quench the thirst of his fans. The appropriately named EP, ‘In My Stride’ features remixes from Atapy, Habischmann and Sasch BBC & Caspar and will no doubt continue to show the passion Soul Button has for making music with so much soul.
With lots to come on the horizon, Soul Button is an artist with still so much to give. Working hard to perfect his craft, Soul Button is continuously looking to show his appreciation to those who love his music. There is a lot of excitement surrounding his EP in collaboration with Sasch ‘Unfold’.
