For Chibuku’s New Years Eve celebration, the organisers have called upon Black Butter Records to bring in a number of esteemed artists from their roster of overflowing talent.
Pioneered by the team behind Stackhouse Management, Black Butter Records has released singles from the likes of Clean Bandit, Man Like Me and Kidnap Kid amongst many others, this second bunch of which will all be appearing at this party that will welcome in 2016.
Headlining the affair will be the bread and butter, if you like, of Black Butter’s roster, the inimitable platinum selling dance duo Rudimental and the UK Top 10 mainstay, Redlight. As one of the most exciting duos in popular dance culture, Rudimental have released 2 LPs and 2 singles that have all topped the UK charts, amongst a rally of other singles that have gone on to become some of the most revered commercial dance records of today.
Feel The Love and Waiting All Night are the number one singles from this pair of Leeds based drum and bass heads, who have become a ruling name in the world of commercial dance music. In a feat similar to this, Redlight have also been hitting the spot in the dance music universe with hits throughout the past few years, some seeing collaborations with the likes of Lotti, Raekwon and LOLO. Redlight’s remix of Rudimental’s Powerless is an example of how both these artist go together perfectly, with the rest of the bill reflecting this even further.
