Black Butter Records is taking the UK to the US this spring for their North American Spring Tour. Featuring top Black Butter artists Gorgon City, Kidnap Kid, My Nu Leng, and Wayward, this tour touts talent spanning multiple genres and guaranteeing a one-of-a-kind experience throughout. As one of the top-growing British labels, Black Butter represents the UK’s most chart-topping artists in the past few years.
Gorgon City’s newest single, Imagination, follows through the UK’s poptastic soul-dance movement with upbeat, dance-ready vocals reminiscent of the late 90s queens CeCe Peniston and Robin S. Gorgon City’s nostalgic house feel fits and locks in with modern sound and techniques to keep things fresh and relatable to all fans.

 

 

Kidnap Kid is one of the youngest names making creative house in the UK. With a darker feel than most “progressive” artists, Kidnap Kid’s tracks are both lounge-worthy and festival-ready. It’s no surprise that he’s been the talk of the town — and he lives up to the hype. Not only are his original tracks masterful and variable, his remixes offer a dreamlike quality to vocals and provide new melodies to suit his own sound. Check out MASS EDMC’s recent interview with Kidnap Kid here.

 


 

My Nu Leng is arguably the most diverse act on this tour. My Nu Leng is genre-free and glad to be — they focus more on creating new, enjoyable, shareable sounds that combine a multitude of influences into one place. My Nu Leng’s sets range from dark drum n bass with a jungle-centric beat that’s hard to pin down to a soaring synth track to classic techno all in a matter of minutes (and all seamlessly done). Their unpredictable style is sure to bring them far in the next few years, pinning My Nu Leng as a breakout artist to watch.

 

 

With an uplifting vibe and a sincere approach to house, Wayward creates bright, gentle tracks that distinctly set themselves apart from their Black Butter counterparts. Wayward has proved their mastery of soft, vocally driven house tracks. With intense organs layered over a soulful base, the duo is kickstarting their career in the right place.

 

 

Each stop on the tour also promises special guests, and with artists on the label like Jess Glynne, Clean Bandit, and Rudimental, there should be something for everyone to look forward to each night.

A writer and social mediac, her main interests are music, literature, technology, art, and her first love: the city of Boston.
