At the Controls is a series of interviews conducted last year that peeks under the curtain of electronic music production, to highlight the behind-the-scenes people whose contributions have had a lasting impact across the dance music landscape.
Martin Buttrich has been a stalwart of electronic music for two decades, but this year he appears to be on the cusp of something big. For many years, he was the silent studio partner of Timo Maas, guiding him towards landmark tracks like his signature remixes of Azzido da Bass and Tori Amos. Buttrich also bolstered the productions of his Desolat label co-owner Loco Dice, as he ascended to the highest ranks of popular DJs. But a few years ago, Buttrich began to ease himself into the spotlight more and more.
