Crack Mix 373:
Russell E.L. Butler

Techno House Experimental

Based in Oakland since 2009, Russell E.L. Butler is a pillar of the Bay Area DIY dance community. Their machine-driven and experimental-leaning techno – released through Bay institutions like Club Chai – draws on the rich cultural history of the “Black, queer diaspora” as well as that of Bermuda, where they were born.

Butler’s Crack Mix is “a free-form emotional mix, thicc with the spirit,” that starts fractured but soon builds into rolling grooves of techno and house. Full of warm and uplifting selections, it captures Butler in an optimistic mood: “I believe in love because love believes in me.”
