    Turn The Beat Around – Butch le Butch Interview and DJ Set

    Turn The Beat Around – Butch le Butch Interview and DJ Set

    Show originally aired Friday, 29 January 2021

    In the final instalment on Turn The Beat Around’s Superstar DJ Month,  we were joined by Melbourne’s very own Butch le Butch.

    BLB has been on the DJ scene for over 25 years and has spun a set at some of Melbourne’s most loved night spots during this time. Remixing a tune or two on the side, BLB turned Dolly Parton’s 9 to 5 into a big room anthem and gave Madonna’s Borderline an authentic extension turning the track into an epic 9 minute opus.

    We find out how BLB survived 2020 and what’s in store for 2021 all before launching into an exclusive DJ set
