Butch's Top America-Themed Tracks: Listen to His Guest Playlist
It's no surprise that Butch has America on the mind.
The German DJ/producer recently wrapped up a six-date U.S. tour that took him through Detroit, Denver, Miami, New York, Cambridge and Chicago.
A resident at Berlin club Watergate, Butch recently released his Watergate 18 installment in the famous venue's branded mix series, and has an experimental new album on the way.
Check out the Guest Playlist the Watergate resident put together for Billboard Dance, sharing his favorite songs that remind him of the United States just in time for the 4th of July.
Nina Simone – "Baltimore"
"Randy Newman wrote this in 1977. Recent news show some themes are recurring. Nina's song sadly is timeless until we as a people own up to what's important and make those changes."
South Park – "South Park Theme"
"Basically the funniest show ever. That town is the US."
KRS-One – "The South Bronx"
"That's where one of the biggest genres of all time was born. Hip-hop you don't stop!"
Juan Atkins – "Techno City"
Never gets old! That's just how Detroit had to be back in the '80s, love it!
Billie Holiday & Louis Armstrong – "(Do You Know What it Means to Miss) New Orleans"
"Listen to this leaving the States. Check out the YouTube video, pure gold!"
