The Ghost of Detroit has materialized. Crafting music for over a decade has afforded Motor City based producer/drummer Butch Clancy precious time to fine tune his own unique, bass laden style. With a production resume reading like a laundry list of genres: hip hop, house, dubstep… boundaries are ignored and risks taken.
Despite being introduced to the world in 2011 when street dancer Marquese Scott’s performance to Butch’s interpretation of “Foster The People - Pumped Up Kicks” went absolutely viral (78 million views & counting), the Motown native remained shrouded in ambiguity until just recently. As if emerging from nowhere, he abruptly took the tail end of 2012 by force with over 20 headlining dates across the US. The fall of 2012 also saw Butch triumph over a sea of submissions to win Beatport Play’s remix contest with a rendition of Zeds Dead’s “Cowboy”, Ellie Goulding commissioning an official rework of her single “Anything Could Happen” + Steve Aoki hand-picking Butch’s “Where I Can’t Follow” to feature on a forthcoming Dim Mak compilation.
For the past few weeks, Butch has been giving away a free trap track every Tuesday. Today, he compiles them all, re-masters them & presents them as the: A Beautiful Mind LP. The free release also includes new versions for some tracks & some unreleased work.
A Beautiful Mind features 9 banging tracks, all yours free of charge by liking Butch Clancy’s Facebook page.
