Russell Butler

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 home and the black, queer diaspora.

Russell’s unique performative approach to modular synthesizers can be heard over several albums and eps, most recently, The Home I’d Build For Myself and All My Friends released on San Francisco label Left Hand Path in 2018 and Petty released on Spectral Sounds in 2019.
