  • March 22nd – Leeds – O2 Academy
  • March 23rd – Glasgow – O2 Academy
  • March 24th – Manchester – O2 Apollo
  • March 25th – Birmingham – O2 Academy

Nile Rodgers:

“If it wasn’t for a DJ there might not be any CHIC records. We were discovered not on the internet but in a nightclub, which is why I chose to invite some of the best DJs out there right now along on my UK tour. Our disco music is made for having ‘Good Times’ on the dancefloor. I am thrilled to have the support of young house talents Butler & Bontan and Krystal Klear; they feel like the next chapter, representing the future breed of expert DJs, who’ll continue to spin records that make ‘Everybody Dance’.

Butler & Bontan:

“Chic have written some of the most memorable songs in history. For us to be joining them on their UK tour is a true blessing and an absolute honour.”

Over the last 12 months Josh Butler and Bontan have become two of the most exciting new talents to emerge from the buzzing UK house music scene. Following the success of their collaborate releases such as ‘Got A Feeling’ and ‘We’ve Found A Place’ the dynamic duo have kicked 2015 off in formidable fashion by first announcing their very own ‘Be True’ tour and now confirming they’ll also be supporting none other than Nile Rodgers and his legendary disco outfit CHIC on-the-road this month.

The tour will see Butler & Bontan provide exclusive back-2-back warm-up sets for Disco’s finest, before CHIC perform material from their new album ‘I’ll Be There’ and classic hits such ‘Good Times’, ‘Everybody Dance’ and ‘Le Freak’, at some the UK’s leading venues including; the Roundhouse in London, the O2 Apollo in Manchester and the O2 Academy in Leeds, Glasgow and Birmingham from March 21st – 25th.

As mentioned, this news coincides with Butler & Bontan’s very own highly successful ‘Be True’ tour which continues until April 5th and sees the lads play back-2-back for no less than 4 hours throughout the UK & Ireland showing their respect for true House music. 


josh butler2014 is already proving to be a stellar year for House music’s new hero Josh Butler. Not only has he recently dropped his killer ‘No Frills’ EP on Kerri Chandler’s infamous MadTech imprint and remixed ‘Goodness Gracious’ by pop goddess Ellie Goulding, but he’s also just scooped a prestigious Beatport Award for his 2013 House anthem ‘Got A Feeling’.

Josh says “This is simply unbelievable. I knew ‘Got A Feeling’ was a strong track but I never knew it would blow up just like it did. For it to be Beatport’s best selling remixed track of the year and for me to win an award for it is unreal.”

The Leeds based DJ/producer has experienced an unprecedented couple of years to firmly gain his place at the forefront of House music’s new wave, boasting releases on a multitude of revered imprints such as MTA Records, MadTech, OFF Recordings, Cajual Records, Pura Music, Kraftek and garnering support from the likes of Steve Lawler, Maya Jane Coles, Waze & Odyssey plus BBC Radio 1’s Pete Tong, Annie Mac,Heidi, B. Traits and Mistajam.

Josh says “I am truly grateful for the kind success I’m currently experiencing. Things really started to gain momentum for me when I began working with Darius Syrossian and Hector Couto. My music started receiving a lot wider recognition which set things up nicely for my debut EP release on Chase and Status’ MTA Records at the start of last year.”

That debut MTA release was Josh’s illustrious ‘Got A Feeling’ EP, which included re-rubs from Ben Pearce and Bontan. The EP’s title track caused such a stir it was released twice throughout the year and went on to become Beatport’s best selling remixed track of the year. ‘Got A Feeling’ was Josh’s breakout into the industry’s field of vision and enabled him to perform throughout Europe and at some of the UK’s best clubs and events.

Bringing things up-to-date, Warrington’s worst kept secret has global ventures on the mind and looks towards achieving new and compelling heights. Josh says “I am working on some great new music and have some awesome shows lined up so I am really looking forward to what the future may hold. I just want to work hard and hope people keep enjoying my sound”
