Russell E.I. Butler (LIVE)
Russell E.I. Butler (LIVE)
Russell Butler is a non-binary experimental artist and DJ based in Oakland, California. Originally from Bermuda, Russell has developed a process of improvisation that draws from a rich cultural history rooted in their island and the black, queer diaspora.

For the past few years they have been making a brand of stripped down machine techno that has evolved rapidly with each successive release. Transplantation, evolution, and healing are themes in Russell’s music. They based their 2015 album, “God is Change”, on Octavia Butler’s Parable series of novels, in which these are central tenets of the philosophy that the books explore. Since its release “God is Change” has received major acclaim, with NPR naming it one of their top 10 favorite electronic albums of 2015. In 2016, Russell released “Visions of the Future” on Jacktone Records, which is a collection of improvised modular synthesizer sessions. A month later, Russell’s follow up to “God is Change”, “The First Step”, was released on Black Opal. “The First Step” is dedicated to the “…black, brown, trans, queer, and gay folks of Oakland” and posits that “…sometimes to resist oppression, all we must do is simply exist. That is the first step. Let us strive to walk without fear.”

Russell's newest record, “I'm Dropping Out of Life”, was released on January 30th via CGI Records and has already received praise from NPR, Fact, Thump, and The Fader, with early play by DJs like Nina Kraviz, Umfang, and Powder.

In February of 2017, Moog Music profiled Russell’s practice and life in Oakland via their new series, Sonic Origins.

Andrew Devlin
Raised on bagels, pizza, and Hot 97, NY native Andrew Devlin was in many ways born for this life. The signs were there along--pumping up the volume on gym class speakers and throwing parties in the library since he was a young buck. But it took a Planet Hollywood-sponsored trip to Barcelona for AD to discover his sound. Since then he hasn't looked back, delving deeper into musical history and technical wizardry. Today his DJ sets are marked by variety from classic disco cuts to contemporary lo-fi house and deep rolling techno. He's the man behind Level, a collective based in Brooklyn that manifests in monthly parties, radio shows, and soon, vinyl releases.
